Holiday Party Themes for Your San Diego Company

Holiday photobooth activity

When it comes to planning your office holiday party, the opportunities are endless. Some party organizers come to us with a theme already in mind and just need us to help put the pieces together. Others have less specific plans but are still in search of a fun holiday party theme that will boost morale and show their team how much they appreciate all their hard work throughout the year.

Holiday parties can be in the office, the parking lot, or in a park nearby, and we’re always happy to help you find a location. Many companies have already started planning their annual holiday celebrations. But if you haven’t, don’t fret, because it’s not too late! Here are four holiday office party themes to get the wheels rolling:

Feliz Navidad Holiday Fiesta

Celebrate the season with a dash of San Diego’s rich Latino culture by giving your holiday party a fiesta theme.

This theme is perfect for a family-friendly office holiday party. With our South of the Border menu, you can treat your guests to delicious baja tacos with grilled mahi, beef machaca, or salsa verde shredded chicken. Your employees and their families can enjoy some holiday margaritas or spiced (and spiked) hot cocoa while the kids sip on fresh lemonade.

Every holiday party needs fun games and activities, and this theme is fun-filled. We can arrange holiday-themed ceramic painting, ornament making, and cookie decorating stations. For the kids, a piñata is sure to fill the room with holiday cheer (and candy!).

If competition is in the air, you could always take your event to one of the local parks for a festive bubble soccer match!

Holiday in Paradise

We San Diegans are lucky to live in paradise year-round. After all, not everywhere can claim 70-degree weather in December. With this lively theme, you can take advantage of our great city and make your office holiday party a real retreat for your team.

For starters, we’ll fix a delicious Hawaiian BBQ menu with tangy teriyaki Hawaiian chicken and tender kalua pork. Enjoy it with our famous luau macaroni salad and some homemade cookies. Your holiday party will need a “paradise” feel, so we’ll be sure to bring in plenty of palm trees decked out in seasonal lights and garlands. And how about a holiday shrimp cocktail station to keep your guests feeling festive?

Both employee-only and family holiday parties alike need plenty of photos. We can set up a fun photo booth with props and backgrounds so you can really make your holiday in paradise office party unforgettable.

Journey to the North Pole

Maybe your version of paradise doesn’t include umbrella drinks and palm trees. Maybe your version of paradise is a little cooler. Well, it doesn’t get much cooler than the North Pole. We’re excited to bring the North Pole straight to your holiday party for you and your guests to enjoy!

The North Pole is a downright chilly place, so you’ll need plenty of hot food and drinks to keep you warm. A gourmet hot chocolate station and a holiday hot cheese station should do the trick! For the main course, we’ll heat up the North Pole with some sassy southern flavor—some Southern Pride BBQ, that is! Chow down on some St. Louis-style pork spareribs and California oak smoked chicken to top it off.

Not to brag or anything, but we do know jolly old St. Nick personally. He loves the warm weather here, but when we set him up with snow machines and real reindeer to give that North Pole feel, it really brings a sparkle to his eye. We’ll be sure to invite the big man himself to your office holiday party to greet the kids (and the kids at heart, of course)! Afterward, the whole team can enjoy a few rounds of North Pole-themed mini golf with prizes!

Santa’s Circus

Picnic Land can get a little wacky sometimes, but we embrace that “under the big tent” feel and can help you do the same with a totally unique Santa’s Circus-themed holiday party spectacular!

Take your holiday party out to the parking lot, where your menu will be full of all the delicious circus and carnival-themed midway foods you can imagine! This means kettle corn, cotton candy, sno cones and all the deep-fried goodness under Mr. Sun. Toss in a holiday dessert bar station and a hot apple cider station to keep the chills at bay. Along the way, you’ll have plenty of holiday-themed carnival games and prizes.

What are circuses known for? Elephants, of course! Bringing an actual elephant might be a little bit much for a holiday party (even for us, although we’d certainly love to see the guests’ reactions!). An easier option for an office party would be everybody’s favorite—a white elephant gift exchange game. Every guest brings a gift and draws a number. Starting with number one, each party guest picks a random gift and decides to keep it or swap it for something else that was already opened. It’s a holiday party classic that’s sure to get plenty of smiles.

These themes are just the start of what we can do for your company holiday party. Great food, holiday-themed menus, full bar service, holiday party games—it all starts with a little imagination and the holiday spirit that we love so much!
