5 Office Christmas Party ideas that won’t have your team cringing

Are you tired of searching for a unique office Christmas party idea?

Do people roll their eyes and wish they could take the day off instead of attending a work do?


It’s time to think outside the norm and book a spectacular office Christmas party which will engage the team, encourage participation and be the most talked about event for the season. If you book with us then you will be giving to others too.


Here are our top 5 picks for your office Christmas party theme ideas in 2018.

Cook with a Conscience

Book to create your own canapes or even the whole Christmas lunch as an engaging team build this year. Have your staff divided into teams and provided with achievable recipes and ingredients. Let them get creative together and empower them to present luscious morsels of food to share with the whole group. Create canapes and top up with the mains and desserts, or have different groups working on alternative courses to produce the whole meal. Whilst there are often initial grumbles, this is one of the most popular events and always receives extraordinary feedback. Find out more about the options here.

Floral Shirts Summer Fun

Create a theme that is simple for party goers to engage with. A floral shirt theme is fun because there are options for those who wish to be elegant alongside those who may wish to play a little with the theme and head for an op-shop. The Fearless Kitchen can create a menu to tie in with the floral theme, with delicious island inspired celebration dishes and cocktails or mocktails to match. You could have your guests create their own drink or decorate the canapes for prizes if you want to get really hands on. Give us a call to discuss.

The Long Lunch

We love to set up a long extended beautifully decorated lunch table in a unique setting for our clients. This can be simple yet elegant. Your staff will feel special and cared for as they enjoy their Christmas lunch with their peers in a glorious setting. You can keep the event simple by providing platters of food, buffet style. Alternatively, you can go all out and treat everyone to a 3 course meal. If the weather behaves itself then an outdoor setting is a glorious option. Ready to chat?

The Food Truck Fiesta

Food trucks are a hit and have exploded into Auckland with gusto this year. We love getting vendors together to create a feast for private groups. Choose complementary or diverse cuisines plus a dessert truck option and let your staff relax within a funky set up. Pick a cuisine theme or go for around the world. Get the trucks to create short choice options to avoid queues and fill the space with long tables to get folk connecting whilst they choose, chat and relax. Need help co-ordinating this? Call us and we can sort for you


Media Madness

For some teams the chance to get dressed up and looking their best is beyond their imagination. Set up a media style Christmas celebration and bring in the hair and make-up pros and a photographer too. As folk arrive they can head for a touch up and magical ‘up-do’ before letting themselves relax into the Christmas spirit. Invite whole families or partners to really create an extraordinary event with photos for memories. Invite your giveback community group if you want and let them join the fun together. Kids would have a blast being made up and photographed with grown ups.


Let us do the work for you:

The Fearless Kitchen is all about creating bespoke events that are tailored for you. We love to get creative and give you extraordinary options. Our favourite part is supporting others through our conscience giving program. For every event booked we give an event on your behalf. You can send employees to join us as volunteers or receive fabulous feedback from those you have touched with kindness.

  1. hello
    Anne (Ballin Street) gave me your name as she said that you do ‘different’ corporate events. We are currently thinking of our end of year function, and trying to get some ideas for this. She said that you have created a masterchef type competition/eating for another school and that you would have some ideas that we can look at.

    Look forward to your reply and ideas

    thanks Lorraine (Executive Officer – One Tree Hill College)
