If you thought the year was flying by, brace yourselves because it’s time to talk corporate Christmas parties! Yes, it’s officially that time of year again where the office banter shifts from weekly lunches and after work drinks, to Christmas party attire, catering, beverages and well…everything festive. 

The Fox Hotel being one of Brisbane’s top venues is nothing new, and when it comes to a corporate Christmas party we sure know how to host a damn good shindig.

So, whether you’re a business of 50+ or a group of 10 or less, the Fox is the perfect spot to celebrate the silly season. But, if you’re a little unsure about the finer details, here are a few office Christmas party ideas to get you in the festive spirit.

Office Xmas Party Idea 1: Classy Cocktail Party

When it comes to corporate Christmas party ideas, it’s hard to go past a classy (not to mention classic) cocktail soiree. Think ladies in stunning frocks and killer stilettos, the gents rocking their most dapper ensembles, with quality food and drinks, and a sensational venue.

Yeah, we like the sound of that too.

Office Xmas Party Idea 2: Long Lunch 

For those of you who love a Christmas party that starts early and goes on well into the night (so, that’s all of us?), a long lunch is another great corporate Christmas party idea. Regardless of numbers, we’ll roll out the red carpet for you and your colleagues, and with a range of function packages to choose from, as well as an extensive food and beverage menu, the Fox has your festive season covered.

Corporate Xmas Party Idea 3:  Themed Christmas Party 

Ever wanted to go all-out with a themed Christmas party for your workplace? Well, this year the Fox is ready to make it happen. Think daggy-but-cute decorations, traditional and indulgent Christmas fare, with festive tunes thrown in for good measure. Oh, and depending on your theme of choice, don’t forget to include an ugly Christmas sweater or two!  

Corporate Christmas Party Idea 4: Christmas Cruise  

For businesses wanting to take things up a notch this festive season, a Brisbane River cruise followed by an afterparty at the Fox is a pretty sensational corporate Christmas party idea. Make a day of it by spending a few hours on the water admiring our beautiful river-city, before docking at South Bank and wandering down to the Fox for extended celebrations.

Corporate Xmas Party Idea 5: After Work Drinks 

If you’re thinking something a little more relaxed and relatively low-key, why not round up your work mates and swing by the Fox after work for a cheeky bevvie or two? With an array of cocktails, beer, wine and spirits on offer, as well as some seriously-delicious share plates (because you’re going to get hungry, let’s be honest), this corporate Christmas party idea is one that is guaranteed to please the whole team.

Corporate Christmas Party Idea 6: Rooftop Soiree

Looking to give the silly season a serious lift? How about raising the roof on your office Christmas party for 2018 with a summer themed soiree? So grab your most outrageous floral shirt and prepare for a proper Queensland celebration complete with summery cocktails, and seafood canapes high above the rooftops. Bonus points if you can get your boss to do the limbo.

Office Xmas Party Idea 7: Trivia

Planning a mid-week xmas party but not overly keen on heading out for a big one? Host a trivia night!

Locations like the Long Bar are the perfect spot for an epic xmas-themed trivia night. Eat, drink, be merry, and be even merrier when your team takes the title of office trivia champ!

Office Xmas Party Idea 8: Tiki-Themed Party

Okay, so the Christmas savings you were hoping for didn’t exactly pan out (Santa, you’re bleeding us dry), but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a tropical getaway! Take your holiday to Fox Island with a Tiki themed Christmas party on Dandy’s Rooftop. Whip out the long-forgotten Hawaiian shirts, and hit the cocktail jugs and canapes before your Christmas gift to the rest of the office – a stint on the dance floor.
