containersFor many employees, the company holiday party is often one of the best times of the year. It's a chance for all of the workers to come together as a team to celebrate all of the hard work they put in over the last 12 months.

In order to have a successful company holiday party, the party committee can mix things up each year. This means switching up the venue, food, and activities. Here are a few things for you to consider when you need to throw a successful holiday party.

Wine Tasting

Wine tasting may be a fun activity to incorporate into a holiday party! Not only is it a great way for employees to try different types of wine, it gives those working in the company to get to bond with people who have similar interests. You can ask that each of your guests bring their favorite bottle of wine to the party so that everyone can get a taste of their coworkers' favorite drinks. It's also cost-effective since you won't have to worry about paying for the wine with the company's dime.

Ice Cream Bar
Just because the weather is most likely going to be cooler for the holiday party doesn't mean you have to say no to ice cream. An ice cream bar can be a fun party perk as it allows guest to make their favorite ice cream buffet concoctions. All you'll need is the frozen treats like ice cream or gelato, spoons, toppings, and containers. Not only will the containers serve as a bowl for the treats, but they can also be used as to-go containers if the guests choose to take the desserts home with them.

About 9% of the milk produced by U.S. dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream, so it's a good thing to remember that ice cream does, in fact, contain dairy. Pick up some dairy-free and allergen-free options so that everyone can enjoy the bar.

Fundraiser
Forget asking your guests to bring a dish to pass or a gift for a Yankee swap, and ask them to bring a few dollars to donate to a local non-profit. Many non-profits constantly seek donations during the holiday time, so why not put your party to good use and make it a place where everyone can give back?

Holiday parties can often be the highlight of the year for many employees. By giving them something to look forward to, you can easily boost their morale.
