Awesome Holiday Party Ideas
For those of you who haven’t planned their holiday company party yet, here’s a few suggestions to help you in the holiday party entertainment area and some other helpful tips:
1. Game Time – Looking for a low key affordable holiday office party that is sought by your employees? Place more emphasis on planning with minimal investment of energy and time in planning and execution. This effort garners huge appreciation by stressed-out employees at this time of year. Card games, shuffleboard, basketball, board games, ping pong, pool, darts, and more, ignites fun and friendly competition and take the focus away from drinking.
2. Retro 80s Theme – With a resurgence of the retro theme and arcade rooms being featured in current tv series (Stranger Things 2, Halt and Catch Fire), we’re seeing more events based on the Retro Theme. With all the games on free play, you can play to your hearts content! Recently Stranger Things Season 2 featured Dig Dug Classic Arcade as a major storyline in the series. Some of our classic arcade lineup include: Ms. Pacman (1982), Pacman (1980), Donkey Kong (1981), Asteroids (1979), Galaga (1981), Frogger (1981), Space Invaders (1978), Centipede (1980). To add a little more kick to your Retro Theme, some of our clients have decorated with props such as massive rubik cubes, oversize backdrops, blown up graphics of Pacman and more.
3. Tried but so True – Photo Opportunities! Most couples or even team members don’t have an opportunity to take a photo together. Plan your company holiday party to include a Vintage Photo Booth or Green Screen Photography or just a custom holiday backdrop as a selfie station! Check out some of our backgrounds we’ve created for the holiday season.
4. Sports Bar Theme – Host your corporate holiday event at a local brewery like Atlanta based Sweetwater Brewery or Tannery Row that may have a few games already there. We can bring more games to fill in the blanks like pool tables, foosball, golf putting challenge or traditional arcade game room games.
5. Glow Games – Nothing enhances a room with a Christmas Tree and dimmed lights as LED games. Adding to the ambiance, glow games like our LED Pool Tables and LED Shuffleboard enrich the atmosphere. Some of our other games already have a glow to them like Skeeball, Putting Challenge II, and Electronic Darts along with upright arcades.
6. Carnival Theme – Who doesn’t love going to the carnival or county fair! Bring the fair to them with Skeeballs, Super Shot Basketball, Whac A Mole, Traditional Ring Toss, and our custom photo cutouts.
7. Casino Night – Kickup your casino night by including an MC who keeps the night moving! We offer casino games like blackjack tables, craps tables, roulette setups, Texas hold ‘em tables, money wheels, Black Light Casino, staffing of experienced dealers and more. Most think that casino night is part of a more formal event, but thats not the case for all affairs. Host a laid back version like a Westworld Western Saloon Poker Game theme. If you’re company is providing gifts or prizes, have some fun with how you give them away. Use a Zoltar Fortune Teller with custom fortunes as the prize giver! Go with a professional company that knows how to set up your games and that can help you decide what is going to fit your budget and what games are going to work best with your party space.
8. Hark the Herald – A Christmas Carole Karaoke Party! Throughout the ages, many great songs have been written about the holidays. From classic carols to new favorites, a Christmas carol karaoke party engages all in singing their old time favorites that everyone can enjoy. Use our Karaoke Machine as a Digital Jukebox to get the party started playing holiday music in the background while giving guests a chance to sign in for their songs. Our Karaoke Machine features a robust search module so that you can search by song title, artists, keyword or category. No need for thumbing through pre-printed songbooks that is tedious and frustrating! Our Karaoke Machine has over 30,000 songs in 11 different languages and includes a 42″ Monitor so everyone can easily see the lyrics and music videos! Imagine singing your favorite song in Portuguese!
9. Save Some Money – Have your event midweek! If you haven’t booked a venue yet, you’ll find that prices for weekend dates are much higher than weekday evenings or even mid-day soirees.
10. Holiday Event in January – Take the stress out of hosting the company party in December when it’s so busy for all. Host a Team Appreciation event in January to show your appreciation for your employees and kickoff the new year! Or hold an adult party on the Company’s Birthday!
