Finally, the Christmas party season is here! With the disaster that is the Irish economy it’s only fair that we get to unwind and have some serious fun. However, we’re still very much in the middle of a financial crisis so if your company is feeling the pinch and cancelling the glamorous party this year, we’ve tried to come up with a fun way to have a Christmas party in the office on a budget.
Since, it’s Christmas- have a fancy dress “Santa’s Grotto” themed office party. Just ask your colleauges to put some money towards the party fund to get some decorations, food and drink- then have the party right in your building. Decorate the office with trees and lights, spray snow and streamers, get in some eggnog and mistletoe and play the cheesiest music you can find to get everyone in a good mood.
Then set the dress code to dress in Christmas Costumes. For the men, go as Santa Claus or something funnier like a Snowman or Grinch, or keep it simple with a Christmas Jumper. Ladies can always go as Misses Claus, an Elf, Ice Queen or get some laughs in the Star Costume. Include some disposable cameras in the fund so people can take their own snaps of the fun, then post them up on the office walls for some laughs during the bleak January days!
What do you think? worthy of a party, or is your company going all out this year to blow the bank??
