5 Work-Approved Holiday Party Theme Ideas

The holidays are a fun time of year that offer many opportunities to dress up and celebrate with family, friends, and coworkers. For your next holiday party at work, here are a few theme ideas to get the creative juices flowing.

1. Feliz Navidad

Celebrate Christmas with a fiesta that honors San Diego’s Latino culture. If your company has a large number of Latino and Hispanic employees, this could be a great way to foster a sense of unity.

Picnic People has a South of the Border menu featuring baja tacos with grilled maji, beef machaca, and even salsa verde shredded chicken. Our team can also bring the decorations, activities, and entertainment. We’ve got the equipment for holiday-themed ceramic painting, ornament decoration, and cookie decorating stations. Parties with kids can also have a piñata to spread the holiday cheer — and candy — across the room.

2. Christmas in Paradise

San Diego boasts comfortable temperatures year round, but around Christmas time the weather usually stays around 70 degrees, creating a wonderful opportunity to celebrate outdoors. 

Our Hawaiian BBQ menu is the perfect start to a work party themed Christmas in Paradise. We’ll bring Hawaiian chicken, tender kalua pork, luau macaroni salad, and homemade cookies that will put everyone into a paradise mindset. We’ve also got the decorations to transform your party into a tropical paradise. Palm trees adored with seasonal lights and garlands, as well as a tropical photo booth will make your Christmas party unforgettable.

3. Journey to the North Pole

If you’d like a truly wintery Christmas party, we’ll bring the North Pole to your office party. To keep everyone warm, we’ll bring hot cocoa, Southern-style BBQ, a hot cheese station, and irresistible St. Louis-style pork ribs. And of course, how could we forget the snow machines and reindeer. Call Picnic People today to begin planning your North Pole Christmas party.

4. Christmas in Vegas

Bring your card tricks and good luck charm to a Vegas-themed holiday party. You could hold card games, with a portion of the proceeds going to a local charity. Serve fruity cocktails and finger foods and reach out to Picnic People for the main entrees.

5. Black Tie

Keep it formal with a Black Tie event that encourages employees to dress up. You could also roll out the red carpet for an even more luxurious feel. Be sure to hire a catering company to take care of the food and drinks so you can focus on socializing.
