With the winter season fast approaching, the Christmas celebrations are bound to be on everyone’s minds. If your workplace is going to host a celebratory party for the day, then you might want to start early on with the preparations – the earlier you start, the better the party can be. But to start you need ideas to work with, and what are you to do if you are stumped for ideas? Simply put, you search for them! Whether that means going through Pinterest for ideas, or scrolling through old blogs and articles from last year, you can probably find inspiration just about anywhere. In fact, here are some wonderful ideas to try out at your party this year:

  • Switch it up – if you have had annual Christmas parties, and they all were of the same flair, you and your colleagues might understandably be not very excited for the event. Why not have a break in tradition and get everyone to look forward to the party this year? A change in what you always do is bound to make for an interesting party idea – even if that is simply looking for a different corporate venue this time around. Keep in mind, however, that changing plans means you will have to plan for different things (and that can become more tedious a job for you!).
    • Arrange many entertainment pieces – one more example of a good idea for your Christmas party is in the entertainment you decide to hire. If your Melbourne christmas party venues is merely relying on the services of a band or a DJ, then you are not really providing much in the way of stimulating entertainment for your guests. Comedy sketches, karaoke, photo booths and other game ideas are all good ways to have your colleagues take part in the fun and have a truly good time at the party. And keep in mind, there are plenty of games that need not much in the way of preparations, and these can be a lifesaver if you are tight on the budget!
      • Themed party – one of those oldest ideas for colourful parties is sticking to specific themes. You might wonder what else of a theme you might need when you already have Christmas, but you can make it even more specific! Christmas can represent many things, and depending on where you live, the term ‘White Christmas’ might not even be appropriate. To spice things up, you might want to take the themes other countries have for Christmas for example. Or you can have specific dress codes with regards to the party – funny headwear, or even sweaters for a comfy party at the office itself.

Minimum guest list: having too many guests can make the whole function to go of hand budget wise. The more guests you hope to have the more supplies and food you will need to cater. This will all add to the final costs. So make sure that you invite only the most important and closest people to the function. It can be 7 -10 friends of your child or if adults are included have a mix of them. Simple fun activities: going in for a lot of activities and entertainment options will add to the budget. Therefore opt to have simple activities that you can organise yourself, such as blowing bubbles, musical chairs or treasure hunting. You can even hire a face painter Adelaide to keep them engaged.

Look for a budget venue: most restaurants or specific venues for celebrations will take care of all the necessary activities of the event but they will come at a big price. So if you cannot afford it, then you need to look for alternative locations such as your own backyard, a park or even a small clubhouse in the local area. These places come cheap and you can organise really creative functions that will not eat in to your budget. Make a theme with what you have: most often you can make do with existing stuff at home to create an interesting party space. Left over decorations or handmade items can really help reduce the costs.

Therefore look within your own space before you go shopping. If it is an artist themed party you can always pull out some paint and do some really creative craft making sessions with the kids. Or if you have a pool, create a celebration around it with guests coming in their bathing suits. Alternatively you can also get budget kids party entertainers Melbourne, to keep them engaged.E invitations: nowadays everyone has a Smartphone, so make use of the technology to make digital invites. They are way cheaper that getting printed invites done.

Do it yourself: most often you will have creative family members and friends who can help you out in many ways, like baking the cake or making decorations. Therefore whenever possible try to make them yourself or get family to help out. This will save a lot of money and above all help to make it a more personalised and enjoyable experience.
