Top-Notch Company Party Ideas

top notch company party ideas

Employee appreciation events, holiday parties, and annual outings with your team can become stale over time. You may have started with some fun events, but now you feel bored just planning it. We have your back. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best outings and events for any occasion you choose to celebrate with your company. 

Balls or Galas

Depending on the size of your company, a ball can be as large or small as you want. In larger companies with several office locations, its ideal to gather everyone in a central location that can accommodate a group of your size. It can be classy and catered, and if you’re feeling fancy, you can make it a themed ball. Smaller companies can rent a room in a restaurant, host the ball in the conference room, or rent a small ballroom. 

Board Game Tournament

Competition in a company can be a wonderful thing. It can boost morale, spark creativity, and bring loads of laughter. This can be a several-hour event with a bracket for the games and winners or you could make it a weekly team-bonding event on Fridays. Of course, there should be a great prize for the winner like a spa treatment, pizza party, or a basket of local goodies or gift cards. 


Even terrible bowlers have fun going out for pizza and drinks. Bowling is even more fun when its theme night! So, make a plan to dress up your company as animals, knights and princesses, or dress your decade and head to your local bowling alley for a memorable night full of laughter and bonding. The best dressed should win a free round of bowling for their team. 


Cater in or head out and treat your team to a delicious brunch. Arrange a surprise brunch for your team in your conference room with loads of baked goods, fresh fruit, and bacon. Consider spicing it up with mimosas or a signature mocktail, and if you’re feeling extra fancy, have a make your own omelet station. Not only does this boost morale, but it will also send your workers back to their desks energized and happy. 

Escape Room

One of the most exciting work-related adventures your team will have will include being locked in a room for 60 minutes. Sounds exhilarating, right? We’re talking about taking your next party to an escape room which will be fun, adventurous, and a great opportunity to see who is a natural-born leader. The best escape room companies offer several different experiences with several themed rooms that fully immerse you in the story of a lifetime. 

Fun Golf 

Golf has never been more exciting. Golf entertainment complexes are a wonderful place to take your team for a special birthday celebration, employee appreciation, or holiday celebration. They make it easy to get together, include everyone, and make memories doing something out of the ordinary. 


Best done in the warmer months, frolfing, or frisbee golf, is a surefire way to work out some steam with your entire company. You can pit work teams against one another or shake up the teams by scrambling everyone. Make a day of it by grilling out and hosting a company picnic after the game and crown the winner of the frolfing tournament. 

Movie Day

It was always the best day in elementary school when they wheeled in the tv and that excitement will be just as high when you announce your company movie day. Stock up on movie theatre candy, popcorn, and a variety of drinks for your employees as they hunker in for a movie day in office. If you want to go all out, take your team to a theatre with their family and enjoy a feature film without the office environment.


For the more adventurous souls, paintballing can leave a mark, but it also creates memories. Be sure to dress in a heavy layer and take your best shot to battle it out and be the winner. Treat the gang to pizza afterward help soothe their bruised ego and maybe their welts, too. 


Everyone loves a classic company picnic at a local park. Fill the grills, the coolers, and the lawn with tons of games for adults and kids. It’s all about bringing everyone together to enjoy a beautiful day and helping foster friendships outside of their nine-to-five setting.

Posh Dinner

Don your jacket and pearls for a ritzy dinner. Take the group out to a fancy restaurant or hotel function room and spoil them with a dinner they likely wouldn’t do on their own. Not only does this spoil them, but it also makes them feel very thankful to be a part of the team and to work for a generous company. It can be a dry dinner or you can give a limit to the selection of beverages allotted for the evening. 


Pop-up office spas are becoming more popular as they make use of your office space and bring a relaxing and stress-free day to your employees. Offer facials, mini-manicures, mini-pedicures, shoulder massages, and you can’t forget light refreshments such as cucumber water, fresh fruit, and finger sandwiches. 


Company trivial, pop culture trivia, or classic Disney movie trivia. No matter what you choose, your group will love rallying together, duking it out, and battling to be the best trivia team in the company. Tons of restaurants and pubs offer trivia regularly or you can choose to create your own and host an in-office trivia party with catered food, beverages, and desirable prizes. 

Take your company party to the next level with one of these unforgettable and memorable experiences. You can even choose to pair a few together and come up with your own super-party.
