ugly christmas sweater contest

With winter coming up, now’s the perfect time to plan your holiday party. Have your previous holiday parties been a bust, though, with attendance dwindling every year? This can be the year you do things differently. 

Today, we’re going to show you how to throw a fun holiday party your team won’t soon forget. Let’s get right into it!

how to throw a fun holiday party 

Holiday parties are the perfect opportunity to bring your team together and show everyone you care. Want the night to be one for the books? Here’s how to throw a fun holiday party: 

tip #1: pick a theme

There are tons of themes that work for the holidays (movies, ugly sweaters, winter wonderland, color themes, etc.). It’s a wonderful way to bring everyone together, and it looks great in pictures. That brings us to our next tip…

tip #2: set up a photo booth 

Photos booths liven up holiday events and come with plenty of laughs. Make sure to have props on hand so that everyone can choose something seasonal or silly. Also, don’t forget to ask your team members to post their pictures on social media or send them to a point person. It’s a win-win and ensures people can go home with a memorable keepsake! 

tip #3: put together games and activities

You could do karaoke, trivia, cupcake decorating contests, and more. You can also have people select a winner for their outfit. (This is especially great if you have a theme, like ugly Christmas sweaters!) Games and activities are good ice-breakers that can help even the most reserved members of your team feel comfortable. 

tip #4: have a great menu

No holiday party is complete without delicious food and drinks. Make sure to have at least one main entree (meat is always a hit), 2-4 appetizers, and 1-3 desserts. That will give your team plenty of variety and make sure there’s something for everyone. It’ll also ensure there’s plenty to talk about!

tip #5: don’t forget music

Music is a must for any holiday party. You can go simple with an iPod and speakers or go crazy by hiring a band or a DJ. Whatever you decide, make sure the music is tasteful, appropriate, and family-friendly (especially if there are kids present). You can even have people vote on the music beforehand if you want! Just make sure everyone gets their votes in well before the event so that you’re not scrambling at the last minute.
