10 Holiday Office Parties That Don’t Suck

I recently accompanied my boyfriend to his work’s end of summer BBQ party.  His boss grilled burgers and a Spotify soft rock station played unremarked upon from an iPhone speaker.  Of a staff of over 50, 12 people attended the party.  Don’t host THAT party. Don’t be THAT boss. I couldn’t help think of all the amazing holiday parties I’ve seen with Firefly and what made them so spectacular.  Don’t throw a lame holiday party.  Throw an epic staff party for the end of the year that your staff will talk about through Valentine’s Day.

You NEED new ideas for your end of year holiday parties. Use these 10 new ideas and fresh outlooks on the end-of-year bash to celebrate with style. It doesn’t matter if your event is in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County or Palm Springs we can meet you there.

10 Awesome Holiday Party Ideas

1. Team Arcade: Holiday Madness
A small group high energy competition that uses a healthy dose of High-tech. Teams will literally be yelling out loud as they try and score high during our Scream Team video game match. Remember Pacman? What if you could only control 1 of pacman’s directions? We rewired the arcade classic so that 4 people must work together to munch power pellets and avoid ghosts. It’s hilarious with a touch of nostalgia and perfect for groups. Spice up your next party in Orange County or Los Angeles.
Timeframe: 1 hour
Suggested Group Size: 20 or less

2. Merry Mixology
Select a holiday trope, fable, or story and create a tribute drink. Then create a clever presentation about the history of your  creation and present it to the judges. This is only available at a hotel or restaurant. But if you’re at a hotel the alcohol and mixins will contribute to your F&B minimum.
Timeframe: 1.5-2.5 hours
Suggested Group Size: 12 and Up

3. Lip Sync Battle – Holiday Edition
We’re digging deep for the crazy fun holiday song selections! Teams will have 1 hour to choreograph, practice and perfect a 1 minute slice of a holiday related song. You then perform it on the big stage in front of our judges. Can you outdo Joseph Gordon Leavitt’s performance against Jimmy Fallon…. we’ll see. It’s hilarious, fast paced and full of energy. The perfect event to pair with bar service and dessert.
Timeframe: 2.5 Hours
Suggested Group Size: 20 and Up

4. Holiday Heroes
Create Super Hero Starter Packs for kids in need. Your pack will uplift and inspire children in difficult health or environmental situations. The imagination is a powerful tool for changing the world. You’ll pack each kit with a personalized card, blank super hero shield, mask, and a top secret handbook. Give the gift of inspiration to very special children!
Timeframe: 1.5-2.5 hours
Suggest Group Size: 12 and Up

5. Merry Murals: Graffiti
No Artistic Talent Required: Celebrate the end of year with big, bold, and bright colors. Graffiti art has exploded into the art world and your group can play a part. We’ll put cans in your hand under the guidance of a world class graffiti artist. Within minutes you’ll be creating lines, fills, and fades. Your artist will help you create a mural on canvas that the group can take back to the office, donate to charity, or take home.
Timeframe: 2-3 hours

6. The Big Give
We offer charity bike builds, care packages for kids or military, eco friendly projects, and more for clients that want to give back. We work with amazing organizations like Families Forward to make sure your donation is maximized. We loved helping Spireon last year stuff over 250 backpacks with comfort items for the local charity Families Forward.  We donned our Santa’s Helpers hats and led their team through fun challenges to earn the items they would put in the backpacks.  I think the teddy bears we found are the softest in the world as evidenced by how many staff couldn’t stop hugging their bears!  Big Give events are not only exciting, but heartwarming and create a lasting positive impression of the company.
Timeframe: 1.5 – 2.5 Hours
Suggested Group Size: 12 and Up

7. The Great Gingerbread Build
One of our culinary creations ready for the holidays. Teams will face-off in the ultimate test of their Gingerbread House building abilities. The bigger the better! Teams must market their new Gingerbread real estate development to the judges if they want to win. This is a design challenge for groups that want to flex their creative muscles.
Timeframe: 1.5 – 2.5 Hours
Suggested Group Size: 12 and Up

8. Holiday Minute Madness
You will not find a better event for Iphone’s slow motion mode. Contestants will be shaking, jumping, wiggling, stacking and laughing with each round. We’ve created challenges similar to the show Minute To Win It and created holiday themed TEAM versions. Short and simple directions make the challenges easy to attempt, but still difficult to master.  We had a blast with the surf brand Hurley and 250 of their employees in Costa Mesa last year.
Timeframe: 1.5-2.5 Hours
Suggested Group Size: 12 and Up

9. Gameshow Showdown
Test your team knowledge in games like Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, or Family Feud. We can pack these games full of trivia about your company, the holidays, sports, or any category that will appeal to your group.

Suggested Group Size: Depends on Group Size

10. Winter Team Games
This Olympic style competition will have your group using trust and communication to achieve results. The perfect event for teams that want to explore team concepts to prepare for the new year. We divide the group into teams and have them rotate through challenge stations. Each station is a chance to win BIG points.
