Holiday parties are a great way to thank your employees for another year of great performance. But frankly, we’ve all been to holiday events that are so awkward or dull, they just seem like more work. At The Collective 360, our goal is to make sure your employees never have to endure another boring holiday party again.
Thanks to our event management experience and great relationships in Denver’s thriving entertainment and nightclub industry, we have access to the most awesome venues in town. Plus, our deep roots in the community give us the inside track on great deals with caterers, entertainers, photographers and other event professionals that no other event management staff can match.
To help your events staff, we’ve put together a few holiday party ideas that are sure to get your employees humming with holiday excitement. And the best part is, you can let us take care of the most stressful parts of the process. No matter how big or small your business is, regardless of whether you want a small, simple gathering for key team members, or a giant honkin’ hoedown for the whole company, we can work within your specific budget and needs to create a truly memorable and inspiring holiday event. Here are some examples.
7 Holiday Party Ideas Your Team Will Love
#1 Piano Wars! – A dueling pianos private event is a fun, interactive way to get your employees singing more than just Jingle Bells! Combine the low-key elegance of a piano bar with the hilarity of professional improv, and get ready for the holiday laughs to flow. Let The Collective 360 take care of finding a venue, arranging transportation via party bus or limo, and hiring the catering company. Our deep roots in Denver’s events community means we can get you the best prices on the coolest options available.
#2 Blackhawk Casino Crawl – It’s no gamble; everyone on your team will hit the jackpot when you let us plan a festive and authentic casino experience surrounded by the Wild West charm of Blackhawk. Consider handing out tokens or a small amount of starting cash ($10 or so should be plenty) to let employees get a start with someone else’s money. Work with us to reserve private banquet rooms, catering and entertainment at special rates, and to arrange a shuttle to and from your office.
#3 Safe Bet Casino Night – For all the excitement of an excursion to the casinos, without the added expense of a shuttle and booking private rooms, a casino-themed holiday party at your office or a local venue is your best bet! Supply your crowd with Monopoly-style funny money so everyone can get in on the high stakes fun! Let us find the perfect venue for whatever size casino party you’re planning, and leave the equipment, decor, professional dealers, and bar staff to us, while your events team soaks in the appreciation and excitement.
#4 Holiday PunchBowl – If you’re looking a slightly more active holiday celebration, bowling never goes out of style. A holiday bowling tournament or charity bowl-a-thon mightjust be your Golden Ticket! Set up teams and have prizes on hand for a memorably good-natured competition that will keep chatter around the water cooler amped up for weeks. To raise the stakes even more, make a donation to a local food bank or other charity in the winning team’s name! Let us plan the door prizes and giveaways, and don’t forget that many bowling alleys come complete with billiards tables and pinball to round out the holiday fun. Don’t forget the snacks! We can arrange your catering, as well as bus or limo pickup and drop off from your office. Call now and ask us about our special pricing at select Denver metro bowling lanes!
#5 Bottle Service – Show your employees a bit of life inside the velvet rope.
