Office Christmas parties aren’t boring obligations around here. At ExpoDisplays, it’s something we LOVE to do and believe it’s a wise investment into our employees and their families. Being a group of designers and makers of things raises the the level of expectation for our Christmas Event. Plastic bows and a tray of chicken nuggets just won’t cut it. We’re all about the theme.
This year’s Christmas Event was themed “Flapjacks and Flannels,” with red and black buffalo plaid adorning the guests, the interior, tables and pretty much every corner of our showroom. A big breakfast spread and the invitation for super casual jeans and flannels pumped up the attendance this year. Nevermind, this is how half of our employees dress every day. But it was nice to add the other half to the mix of us to that mix. The matching plaid parents and kids was a cute addition! Guests were greeted with a donut decorating table to tide them over until the buffet style meal began. With tons of sprinkles, M&Ms, frosting, pretzels the mess made by 68 kids was a yummy mess if anything. Here’s the complete menu for the event:
- Gouda Grits
- Waffle Bar with all of the trimmings
- Hashbrown casserole
- Donut bar
- Pancake dippers
- Bacon – of course!
The breakfast spread was an unusual twist to traditional office party fair. Games to keep the kids busy while they waited on Santa included a Santa Hat ring toss, Jingle Bell toss and a station to decorate ornaments. We set up a fun photo booth with props snagged on Amazon.
We decided in the spirit of giving that we would make available some of our cute printables we used for
the party. Who doesn’t like kitschy little signs and free downloadables, right? Take a look at some of the signs we had hanging around our showroom and feel free to download them for yourself!
