The employees can treat corporate parties quite differently. Usually, such events are like two peas in a pod: dinner at a restaurant, your boss’s solemn speech, food and drinks, the show host and the entertainment program. But what if you choose a different way and organize a fun sports event, a real ball, go on a mysterious adventure, plan an exciting master class or role-playing games? In the end, you can have a loud party with amazing decorations and these cute welcome back balloons!
If you’re out of ideas, then we’ll share with you these amazing ways to welcome back employees after their time-off!

1. Office Oscars
Order a taxi for your employees, a red carpet at the entrance, some flowers and a delicious breakfast to the office, dress code and entertainment program with fun awards – this must be a very exciting party!
Pay attention to details, think of a good party scenario, decorations, and gifts for your employees. You can hire a professional host and a cool DJ, plan a quest, organize a dancing show, and just have fun!
At the end of the evening, you can arrange the Oscars Academy Awards parody, serve champagne and play some live music. You can make personal figurines and big posters that depict the nominees. By the way, you can 3D print custom figurines yourself and then paint them gold!
2. Sports festivity
Planning a corporate party, all bosses are dying to see their employees having fun and participating in the event. That is why a sports festivity is the best choice. There are plenty of ideas to choose from: you can arrange horseback riding, archery, play paintball or go ice skating!
Keep in mind that it is important to offer your employees some comfort and, maybe, a good party after these activities — they might be a bit tired and very hungry. So, rent a cozy warm place, hire a professional photographer, a show host, a good catering company, and decorators to make this day unforgettable for all your guests!
3. Mysterious Adventure
This is a very interesting option that can be organized as a sort of a thematic quest. The organizers come up with a riddle that the participants will need to solve. The road quest is also a very interesting and engaging option.
But you still can have a nice game without leaving the office. For example, if one of your employees is brave enough, you can ask him to try to escape the closed room using the clues. The camera inside the room will show all his efforts — this is going to be real fun!
4. Role-playing games
It is always good if the celebration has a specific theme that will be of interest to all your employees. Pirates of the Caribbean, the evening of Great Gatsby, a Jedi meeting, a holiday in the USSR, the 80s disco, a gangster council, or a meeting of the gold diggers from the Wild West…
The main thing is to think through everything to the smallest detail: invitations, script, costumes, decoration, etc., so that everyone present believes that everything is real!
At such a corporate party, you can not only have fun but also learn something new — and that’s always good. When organizing masterclasses, you need to think about your target audience, that is, take into account the interests of your employees!
There are plenty of master class ideas you can choose from: cooking, making toys, drawing, soap making and much more. And believe us: men will have fun no less than ladies!
Why not have a beautiful ball with real suits and dresses, appropriate decoration with tapestries, candles, flowers, and live music! Photos from such a party on Instagram will definitely make your company famous throughout the city!
By the way, the ball means dancing, so if you want to do everything right, then you should take care of getting your employees prepared in advance and hold several masterclasses.
7. Riding around in a party bus or limousine
A wild party in a real “party” bus is super cool. Don’t just stand there — the whole city is at hand! This is a great and unusual idea that will allow you to visit several clubs or memorable places with colleagues and not get bored on the trip.
Provide interesting competitions and hot dances for the participants, and they will tell everyone about the great party they had!
