Office Party Themes
This is a quick and uncomplicated way to decorate your office for a party, as long as you have a pump to inflate the balloons! Make balloon chains to hang along the walls, tie streamers to the ends and hang from the ceiling, and create balloon bouquets as centerpieces on tabletops. Be creative, and be colorful! Send a balloon attached to each invitation to your employees. As a party favor, give a packet of beautiful balloons to keep the memory alive.
Turn the lights down low. Place twinkle lights everywhere for a starry effect. You can also use glow-in-the-dark star and planet stickers on the walls or ceilings to amplify the effect. Hang silver star balloons and white star cutouts from the ceiling. Serve food on star-shaped serving platters, and buy paper cups, plates and napkins with stars printed on them. Sprinkle star confetti on tables and serving counters. Bake star-shaped cookies as party favors.
Decorate the doorways and hallways with flowers and greenery. Wrap tables in grass table skirts, and use hollowed out pineapples, coconuts, and oranges to make votive tea light holders. Pin colorful, Hawaiian-colored cloths to the walls. Instruct your attendees to wear beach shirts, sarongs, grass skirts, etc. to make the event more festive.
This is one of our more “upscale” ideas for those who want to dress up their holiday office party. The theme incorporates decorative masks to adorn the faces of all the guests. Ask your guests to bring whatever masks they’d like, so they can choose one that matches their date’s and their outfit. Still, buy a few extras for those who don’t bring their own. A true masquerade usually incorporates a lot of purple and gold colors, so keep that in mind when choosing tablecloths, paper plates, flatware, and cups. In the background, play eerie classical music pieces.
The Chocolate Factory
If you want a whimsical, fantastical party that reminds every one of their childhood, why not a Willy Wonka themed party? Incorporate bright candy colors into the décor. For centerpieces, fill transparent glass vases with multicolored candy pieces. Serving tables should have candy scattered throughout. Print out oversized photos of Umpa-Lumpas to decorate the walls. For party favors, what’s better than a Wonka Bar?
Have these decorating ideas got your mind buzzing? Are your thoughts brewing with New Year’s plans for your own office? Go for it! Be creative, take risks, and be yourself. Everybody appreciates a little effort, and a cheerful, festive work environment is nothing to sneeze at. Bring the best of the season to your employees and watch their spirits lift.
