- Treat yo’ self day! Find out what would make your team feel appreciated or what is fun to them and make a day out of it.
- Cereal Bar! Who doesn’t like cereal? Breakfast? Cereal. Lunch? Cereal. Afternoon Snack? Cereal. Dinner? Cereal. It is inexpensive, unexpected, and surprisingly effective. If you have the means build one in, but if you don’t, just bring in a variety of cereals and milks for a day. Bonus, no one will be hangry all day!
- Take some time to laugh and relax! “You can learn more about a person in an hour of laughter than a year of conversation” – Plato. Seems simple enough, it’s just not always easy to find opportunities to bond, right? Around our office this means pajama day! It turns out that our boss wants to wear pajamas to work too. Get the boss on board for some fun and everyone will follow
- “While the cat is away, the mice will play.” This old adage is outdated, and we find bonding over the little things brings our team together. Letting people take a minute to enjoy the sunshine or tell stories and not consistently be focused on the job leads to more productivity! When you need some extra time to connect we have you covered; try www.coloradoteambuildingevents.com for fun bonding experiences from Corporate Recess to in-depth training & facilitation focused on “understanding & synchronizing your team.”

Get Flipped for the Holidays!!!
Your employees, families, & guests will love taking home this special memento from your holiday event. We can add all of your branding logos and text to a fun winter wonderland background. Use holiday images or how about your building lit up for the season.
The photo is animated so that the guests & graphics move. Your guests will have a great time taking two different posed photos and instantly getting FLIPPED on a magnet or luggage tag. They will want to keep these unique momentos forvever as a memory of the FUN they had at your event!
Holiday Event Ideas
The Casino is always a fabulous entertainment option for your holiday party. Guests can enjoy playing at a table even with people they don't know and have a common topic of conversation "the gaming". The latest addition to casino nights is our new video horse racing. This option gets lots of people involved in choosing and betting on their horses then watching a race on the BIG screen.
Bingo is a great way to entertain large crowds and a small addition to your budget.
Most events include guests with many different interests so we have found it is a perfect option to add some sports bar games and/or arcade games to your casino or in place of a casino night. Your guests will love being able to relax and have fun playing pool, air hockey, foosball, and video games.
One of the most popular additions to Holiday parties has been photo booths. Guests love the fun and nostalgia of stepping in the booth for some crazy photos that will print in a strip.
PLATO'S Party Planner Tip/Idea of the Month
Have you ever thought of scheduling your annual Holiday Party as a kick-off to the New Year in January or February??? There is less demand for venues, catering, entertainment and activities after January 1st. Meaning there are more choices for you and there may be more budget friendly choices as well. Your guests will appreciate having one less commitment in December & something fun to look forward to after the hustle & bustle of the Holidays!!
We can't wait to "bring on the FUN" for your next event!!!
