How to Throw Thanksgiving Parties That Get Thanks
November 1, 2017
Throw a memorable office party and people will not only be more motivated, but it could become something they rave about after it ends. A festive, fun Thanksgiving party can be just what your employees need to kick off the holiday season. Include great decorations and a traditional menu. Consider these Thanksgiving party ideas to set the mood and show your thanks and appreciation.
Atmosphere is everything, especially when you create a festive environment with wonderful Thanksgiving decorations. Look for areas around the office that would stand out with some enhancements, such as tables, chairs and appliances. Use the primary colors of the Thanksgiving season to decorate, such as vibrant reds, earthy browns and warm oranges. Tie in the colors of the season with the right motifs. Turkeys are an obvious safe bet; try cornucopias and leaves, too. Drape hanging elements around chairs and place centerpieces on tables, whether it's a decorative punch bowl or a festive horn of plenty. Be sure to tie in traditional elements. Ask for volunteers to help decorate so everyone takes part in the fun. Include holiday themed treats, such as Pumpkin Spice coffee, around the office before the party to set the mood and get everyone in the Thanksgiving spirit.
The Best Treats and Dishes
The size of your team determines the menu. You'll never go wrong with finger food such as chips and dips, but having an entire lunch or dinner could be a great idea if your team is relatively small. Organize a hearty meal with a turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Don't forget the pumpkin pie or other homemade desserts. Encouraging a potluck is another great way to personalize the office party, especially if the team is diverse with a rich culinary heritage. Include a variety of Thanksgiving desserts that offer ease, without requiring a lot of prep work.
Activities and Games
Charades is always a fun way to get everybody in the office party involved, especially if you have the whiteboards and equipment. Invest in a handful of markers and make it a Thanksgiving-themed game. There are many classic and fun activities to include in your Thanksgiving party, such as a dance or karaoke competition. Use the office projector to keep up with the lyrics, and be sure to keep it on throughout the Thanksgiving party. Digital graphics, especially customized ones that reflect your company's brand and culture, can be a great way to add decorative appeal to the office, especially when it's time to break out the karaoke equipment. Take requests and put together a custom playlist.
Let your Thanksgiving spirit soar. Employees will appreciate it and it will certainly be a great way to show your thanks.
