Great Ideas for Philadelphia Business Holiday Celebrations

It’s that time of year again… holiday season in Philadelphia, with all the trimmings. And it’s the best time of year to show some staff/employee appreciation, entertain visiting corporate contacts, and to get ready for another new and profitable business year by taking a little time to decompress from the old one.

Have you already made your plans to celebrate the holidays with your business associates? Even if you made your plans well in advance, we have a few great tips that will help make for even more memorable occasions to ring in the new year with your business and corporate colleagues.

Philadelphia Business Holiday Ideas

If you want to show company and corporate associates a great time this holiday, there are many great options, such as entertainment, cruises, who-dunnit’s and more. Sometimes it’s nice just to enjoy some lighthearted laughter and idle mingling time with our colleagues after office hours.

But there are also some added touches that can really make your event ‘pop’… for celebrations that’ll be reminisced about at the ‘water cooler’ for weeks to come. Corporate visitors in particular want more FUN stuff to do during their travels… a chance to let off a little steam and re-charge the batteries after all the stodgy meetings and hotel-room views they’ve had to endure throughout the year.

Here are a few ideas to help liven up the holiday for your Philadelphia company or corporation:

Even the most non-nonsense among us can enjoy a themed holiday party. This give us a chance to step outside of ourselves and just be part of another ‘place’ for awhile. Here are some cool theme ideas for your corporate holiday party:

  • 50s, 60s or 70s theme – host an old fashioned sock hop, break out your flowery headwear and beads, or get hip in your silk shirt and denim bell bottoms.
  • Hawaiian theme – everybody loves a luau! Soothing steel drums, grass skirts, flaming tiki torches – all in a relaxing beach-like setting.
  • Nerds theme – this one is a no-brainer for some of those techy types in your office… but such fun to have a good laugh, complete with pocket protectors, thick-rimmed glasses (taped bridge optional) and high-waisted polyester pants pulled clear up to the neckline.
  • Historic Characters theme – here’s your chance to don Pocahontas’ feathers, Day Crockett’s coon skin cap, or Tom Sawyer’s weather-worn overalls, (shoes optional).
  • Masquerade Party theme – imagine the fun of trying to identify your associates without seeing their faces… a game and a party all in one!

Other options for less conventional holiday business parties include:

Great customer service- tracking my flight, noting it was going to land 40 minutes early…and making the adjustment so someone was there to meet me at the airport early! Also, receiving a confirmation email 24 hours prior was reassuring as well. Thank you!!
