‘Tis the season to be jolly… with your coworkers. That’s right — it’s time for the annual office holiday party. We’ve all been to at least one bad office holiday party, but we think they can be a lot of fun, especially when you host yours at Brick House.
This year, ditch the Crock-Pot of cocktail sausages and leave the hard work to us. We’ll keep the drinks and apps coming while you get things going with some of these ice-breaking games your guests will actually want to play.
Christmas Carol Charades. C’mon, who doesn’t love a good charade? They’re harder than you think and guaranteed to have everyone laughing — especially when you see your HR director pantomiming “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.”
Ugly Sweater Contest. Everyone’s a winner with an ugly sweater contest. Put on that Fair Isle pullover your aunt picked up for you and start coming up with award categories. Most Christmas Spirit, Loudest (color scheme), Loudest (jingle bell application) and Most Sparkle are just a few possibilities.
Christmas Movie Trivia. Divide into two teams and battle it out to see who reigns supreme. Now is the time to start brushing up on movies from “Elf” to “It’s a Wonderful Life.” And don’t forget the sort-of-Christmas-but-not-really titles, like “Die Hard” and “Harry Potter.”
Photo Booth Lite. You don’t need an actual booth or backdrop to have some fun with photos. Grab that selfie stick and some fun props such as Santa hats, elf ears, reindeer antlers and anything else you can think of. Be sure to tag us (#BrickHouseTT) in your photos so we can enjoy them, too!
The Perfect Gift Exchange. Have each person bring a wrapped present to the party without a tag on it! Number the gifts, mix them up and pass them around. Have each person try to guess who brought the gift!
If you decide to host your get-together at home this year, let Brick House do the cooking. Call and place an order for one of our traveling trays today!
And as you’re planning your holiday party, be sure to keep safety in mind. Make sure everyone has a safe ride home by pre-booking cabs or ride shares.
