Unique Corporate Christmas Party Themes

Make It a Classic Christmas

Thinking of a classic theme but can’t decide which approach to take? See these lovely options!

A Nutcracker-inspired tea party (1) provides a well-loved focus for the decorations and allows you to serve light and simple fare—tea sandwiches, Christmas cookies and confections, paired with an assortment of teas and some bubbly perhaps?

Another nostalgic favorite would be a Vintage-style theme (2) decked out in a retro red and aqua palette and offering up cheesy-filled phyllo shells, truffles, muffins, chocolate mousse and Santa’s milk and cookies in the most creative single-serve containers!

Perhaps a Woodland-inspired motif (3) or a Winter Wonderland look (4), all cozy and inviting with plaid fabrics, woodsy forest and evergreen elements? Perfect for displaying home-baked holiday goodies and ingredients for make-your-own S’mores and hot cocoa.

For a family-friendly celebration, why not a playful Elf on the Shelf theme (5) to kick off a season-long series of surprise Elf sightings—all within office premises! While for a more elegant corporate event, there’s always the iconic White Christmas (7) where you can decorate all in sparkling white and silver, then serve cheese, champagne and snowy confections like truffles, macarons and meringues to match.

Go for a Holiday Flavor Fest

If you prefer to focus on Christmas food favorites and treats, consider these themes. Recreate the family-style fun of a Potluck Holiday Get-together (6), with everyone bringing their best holiday dish, dessert or drink to share. Or choose a Peppermint Theme (8) to inspire a perky red-and-white palette for the decorations, party supplies, and a favor display table of fabric-wrapped treats.

Then, of course, there’s the cocktail party approach for a corporate Christmas event! Try a clever “Naughty or Nice” tagline (9) for a gathering over appetizers and boozy beverages. Or a “Baubles and Bubbly” theme (10) centered around classic holiday ornaments paired with sparkling wine and champagne.

Start planning early and make this year’s corporate Christmas party one to remember!
