Perth 2019 Christmas Party Ideas
Your boss has just put you in charge of planning your office Christmas Party this year – it’s an honour, but also quite a responsibility!
You want to go above and beyond last year’s affair, but you need some help with ideas.
Well, you’re in luck because we’ve compiled a list of our top Christmas party ideas for 2019…
To theme or not to theme?
That is the question… Arrange for your boss and colleagues to vote; that will determine the answer and make your decision easy!
If the voters opt for a theme, here are a couple of ideas to choose from:
Never fear! You can create a Winter Wonderland of your own, right here.
What you’ll need:
- 1x snow machine
- 1x bottle of snow liquid
- Audio-visual leads
- Lighting – The right lighting can really set the mood for your office party, transforming a space from the mundane to a truly magical Winter Wonderland.
Check out Mega Vision’s Winter Wonderland package.
The typical colour-scheme for a Winter Wonderland party is light blue, white and silver. Decorative snowflakes, ice sculptures and fur rugs look great and will further enhance the theme.
You can also take the theme one step further by incorporating it into your menu. You can nibble away on Christmas classics such as smoked salmon blinis, Yorkshire pudding wraps with all the trimmings, mince pies and snowman cookies.
For a culinary spectacle, why not create a festive candy bar? They look great and with such a variety of sweet treats, you can be sure there’ll be something for every taste. Finish off the look with a giant gingerbread house or chocolate log as the centrepiece.
- Disco baby!
Bring on the disco ball and LED dance floor because it’s time to get groovy, baby!
Why not add a smoke machine and mirror balls for that extra WOW factor? Check out Mega Vision’s 70s Disco package.
A disco is a popular choice for a Christmas party. Who doesn’t love boogieing the night away?!
For decorations, napkins, banners and table covers go for rainbow or iridescent colours.
Love it or hate it, the cocktail food of the 1970s was definitely something else. Here are some ideas for nibbles, from a three-cheese fondue, to cheese and pineapple skewers, to trifle.
And don’t forget the 70’s tunes. Speakers and amplifiers will keep the music loud and happening, so long as you use quality equipment.
You’ll likely be thirsty from all that dancing – so, why not make a festive punch or cocktail?
Theme party votes came back with a ‘no’? An office disco not your thing? Don’t worry, here are some other great options to consider come Christmas time for some serious team bonding:
A Merry Wine Tour
Located just 25 minutes from Perth CBD, the Swan Valley is one of Australia’s most iconic wine regions, boasting 30 plus wineries and a plethora of breweries, chocolatiers, coffee roasters and art and craft galleries.

And if you and your team are water enthusiasts, what better way to explore the Swan Valley than on a gourmet river cruise?
