Organise A Killer Office Christmas Party With This List
It is nearly that time of the year again - CHRISTMAS. Here is a list of things to do in Brisbane for all of you office super stars who have been left to organise the office Christmas party this year. I hope it helps!
Old Hollywood Glam: Inspired by the greats of Hollywood - Fred Astaire, Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn. Hire a big band and let everyone dance the night away.
Ugly Christmas Shirt party. Everyone dons a hideous shirt and enjoy a secret Santa (Yankee Swap is FUN), some good Christmas food and drink.
Unique Office Christmas Party Ideas:
Circus School - Claire Ogden is a super cool circus performer who showcases her talent in private and corporate functions. Or for the ultra daring, book her to teach you and your co-workers some circus skills like hula hooping, aerial silks performance and much more.
Get a cocktail designed for your company. Bar Staff Co. will create a cocktail especially for your company where the elements in the drink relate to the mission statement, values and employees in your company, then serve it at your event along with other delicious cocktails.
Rock Climbing Adventure: Do you work with a group that loves adventure? Head to Urban Climb for an awesome indoor rock climbing experience that will exhilarate the team.
Hire out Vieille Branche (super cool French antique venue in Albion) and host a killer party. Complete with a french gypsy band, great drinks and good food (refer to The Ugly Food Co).
Hire out The Wandering Cook venue. This is the epicentre for great food and is a food truck friendly venue. The Wandering Cook is commercial kitchen space for food entrepreneurs, but it also has an awesome space to hire out, and a super cool courtyard.
Hire an Art Gallery. There are some super cool spaces to hire around Brisbane. Check out this website for some awesome locations to host your party.
Fun Office Christmas Party Ideas:
Champagne and Cheese: Lets face it. Cheese is one of the best things on this planet so why not get straight to the point? Enjoy great cheese and other Fine Foods with Emile & Solange and champagne for a super chic event.
Mixology Masterclass: Get the group together to learn how to make cocktails, then enjoy drinking the fruits of your labour.
Picnic in the park is a great idea for an inexpensive party (and great for child friendly alternatives as well). Organise a high tea in the park or simply enjoy a good old fashioned Aussie BBQ. Set up a drinks station (refer back to Copo Loco).
