Halloween is here! And in our humble opinion, it is now the perfect time of the year to celebrate with your coworkers. Sure, Christmas holiday parties are usually the mainstream party for your colleagues. Still, Halloween festivities have a certain casual yet whimsical element that is appreciated by those you work with all day long.
If you’re on the hunt for office party ideas, look no further. We’ll break down 5 haunting ideas that will make you the office favorite.
Host a Halloween Contest
We know this is one of the most cliche office party ideas, but it typically always brings the most laughs and excitement. Decide on a work date before Halloween - such as Friday, October 29th - and invite all your coworkers to partake in celebrating.
The person with the best costume or department with the best group costume are the winners. The prizes could even be something such as a paid day off in order to sweeten the deal. This is an excellent opportunity for your coworkers to use their creative juices and enjoy having a free dress day to boot.
Halloween Movie Marathon
Does one of your coworkers have an awesome movie or theater room? Or maybe they have a great sidewall for a projector? It’s time to break out the freaky classics and partake in a movie marathon. Bring your best Halloween candy or candy corn, and get ready for a night of thrills. Our favorite movies to include are Hocus Pocus, Nightmare Before Christmas, and Beetlejuice.
Bring Your Carved Pumpkins to Work
This is the perfect time to showcase your art skills and see what kind of creative employees you have on your team! Make a competition and ask your colleagues to bring a carved pumpkin to work. Or, if you want to go for a slightly humorous take, you can award the person who paints the funniest Halloween or pumpkin puns.
Seek Out a Halloween Haunted House
It’s the time of the year to be frightened! Besides, can you think of any other activity that bonds a group, such as being scared silly? Head to your local listings to see what haunted house is near that you can easily visit. If you’re around Acadiana, check out Fright Trail.
Go Out for a Halloween Activity
Sometimes you just need to get out of the office to escape work rules or barriers. This lets your guard down and socialize with coworkers in a stress-free environment. This is why we suggest looking to participate in an outside activity far away from the office. We can’t help but mention journeying to the downtown Lafayette location of The Bougie Bar to take advantage of creating your own Halloween scented candle.
Don’t fret anymore on how to make most of the time with your colleagues during Halloween. We’ll take care of every detail, so all you have to do is show up with your favorite bottle of wine or soda and your favorite colleagues (If you need to leave your unfestive coworkers at home, we won’t tell!).
This will be the quintessential office party idea, one that will be remembered through the office. You can either make a commitment to your own private coworker party, or join our Halloween Social Party event on October 30th, 10 AM - 12 PM with your colleagues. Remember: dressing in a Halloween costume for our social party will score a free $5 candle canister upgrade! And don’t forget to take advantage of our special discount code “October” for 10% off of any social party reservation all month long.
