Our Top Five Company Christmas Party Ideas for 2016

It’s that time of the year again and if you haven’t started thinking about your company Christmas Party, we’re here to help.

I hope there’s some inspiration to be found from our Top Five Company Christmas Party Ideas for 2016:


Party In The Park

Everybody loves a garden party – Think jugs of Pimms, hampers filled with a smorgasbord of delectable goodies, garden furniture and day beds, chilled French Champagne, ice cold premium beers, and an acoustic duet in one of Melbourne’s majestic garden settings.

To turn the ‘fun’ into downright memorable, throw in some good old- fashioned lawn games and your party is guaranteed to be a hit. Get competitive at croquet, skittles, quoits and even a few childhood favourites like a sack race and tug of war challenge.



Our Snapper Challenge


For a fun, casual team event with a difference, get out on the open water and tackle our Snapper Challenge. Relax on deck, enjoy a gourmet barbecue and see who can reel in the catch of the day… We’ll then have one of our team cook up your fresh catch on board.

Earn some serious bragging rights by hooking the biggest of our feisty pink friends. We’ll have a leader board visible for all to see just to add to the theatre. Finish the day back on shore with a few post-fishing drinks on an open terrace to bemoan the one that got away.



Bubble Soccer Tournament and Picnic


It works perfectly for a competive bunch who also love to blow off some steam with some serious laughs at the same time. This one is a winner. Teams go head to head, or bubble on bubble, wearing giant inflatable balls. It’s nothing short of chaos but guarantees plenty of laughs and plenty of fodder for chats round the water cooler. Combine with a selection of cold drinks and a gourmet picnic in a majectic Melbourne park.



Hands On Cocktail Party

Break the ice and shake up your next corporate event with the help of a professional cocktail maker for some festive Christmas mixology. Learn to shake, mix, muddle and even invent your very own creations. We have an enthusiastic and skillful demonstrator who runs through a selection of gourmet cocktails before a master chef style cocktail-off ensues between the best contestants. Once you have got in touch with your creative side, kick back and enjoy the results of your hard work over canapés. It is a perfect Christmas event and can be set up absolutely anywhere.



A Yarra Valley Garden Party


Upon arrival,  head through to the private winery for an exclusive barrel tasting with the winemaker. Once complete, move on out to the lawn where you’ll be treated to shared regional platters and estate wines, whilst enjoying lawn games such as petanque, croquet, quoits, tug of war, egg and spoon races, or good old fashioned sack races. Later, enjoy an indulgent gourmet picnic lunch of fine Yarra Valley produce. Admire the scenery in a secluded area of the vineyard before kicking back on the rolling green lawns for a charming garden party against the backdrop of the Yarra Ranges.




Move back to their magnificent private barrel room for a feast of carefully sourced local fare (think the likes of Chestnut and cranberry stuffed turkey, Spice honey glazed ham), washed down with a selection of estate wines.
