01 Jun Halloween-Inspired Office Party Tips and Ideas

Just as traditions are important in families, so are they important in companies. And speaking of traditions, Halloween is one of the best that you can celebrate at work. Today, it’s considered the second most popular holiday in the U.S. and appeals not only to children, but to adults as well. In fact, many companies use it as an opportunity to build a team-oriented work culture. We know Halloween is not yet around the corner, but we also know that you want to be ready to celebrate it in your workplace as soon as it arrives. Here are some tips when planning and preparing for a hair-raising Halloween party at work. grim reaper

Spine-Chilling Decors

The kind of decors you use will determine the mood of the entire event. You can start decorating the entire office a month before the party to set a spooky mood early on. In choosing decors, you don’t have to go for expensive material. In fact, your whole company can go fully DIY on this one. This will encourage creativity and teamwork. You can even start a contest where each department could design and decorate their own corner. The team with the spookiest decors receives a prize at the evening of your party. If you want to splurge, you can do that, too. There are plenty of online stores where you can find a wide range of Halloween decorations from giant spiders, creepy skeletons, zombie, mummies, and witches. It’s also a good idea to vote for a theme. You can always go random with the decors, but it would be easier for you and more fun for the company if you have a theme where you can all based your decors, food, costumes, and games. Here are some great themes:

Blood-Curdling Food and Drinks

Themed food and drinks will make your party more fun and memorable. Again, it’s up to you whether you’ll splurge on this one or not.  You can either hire a caterer or you can assign each team to prepare a particular category of dish. Of course, getting everyone involved is more exciting, unless everyone agreed they don’t have time to prepare and cook.

A Halloween party is never complete without the creepy costumes. If you’re throwing a themed party, you can let the guests come wearing their best interpretation of characters based on the theme. If it’s a zombie-themed party, for instance, the guests should come in their scariest zombie costume and makeup. Of course, it’s going to be more fun if there’s a prize waiting for the employee with the scariest or most true-to-life costume.

Nerve-Racking Party Games

Parlor games are an excellent way to help remind everyone that it’s a night of fun and that they can forget about work even just for a couple of hours. The games you choose could either be based on your theme, or just any random game. The key is to make the games easy to set up, yet difficult to forget. Here are some games you can look at: blackcauldronsnew2
