We’re getting to the tail end of 2021, which means it’s looking like it’s going to be another lockdown Christmas for some of us. Fortunately, there are virtual Christmas party ideas for work that you can enjoy with your team that are fun and memorable, saving you from the certain humdrum of tedious Zoom calls.
Online events and parties are becoming more and more popular, but distance and technology still pose a problem. The good news is that people will always find ways to be together, even if it’s just at a distance. This year, express your gratitude to your team by acknowledging their hard work this past year. They’ve kept the company afloat, and now it’s your turn to show them how much you appreciate them. And, let's not forget that they've been working in a less-than-ideal environment, too!
So, what to get the team instead of gifts this year? Here are some ideas for the office Christmas party they'll never forget! Book a class, and we'll take care of the details. All you need to do is show up and enjoy it like the rest of your colleagues. From online art classes to DIY craft boxes, we’ll make sure all of you are entertained all night long.
DIY Wreath-Making at Home
Feeling crafty? What better way to celebrate the holiday season than by hosting a Christmas wreath-making workshop? You and your colleagues may never have worked on wreaths before, but it is sure to be a fun experience because the rules are simple. In fact, it's an easy project that anyone can do even if you are not the craftiest person! Not only can they use the wreath they make for décor, but it also doubles as an awesome housewarming present.
Holiday Flowers Workshop
Let’s not forget that there are other ways to have a successful holiday that don’t involve Christmas crafts like wreath-making. Enter: flower arranging, the calming activity that everyone is sure to love. Virtual flower workshops are a wonderful way to thank your team for a job well done and leave them feeling refreshed and reinvigorated come the holidays.
If you’re looking for a way to brighten up your room and add some aroma, this is a great way to do it. Cut flowers that are artfully arranged are the perfect way to make your space inviting.
Plus, what better way to bring a little bit of joy and energy to your workspace than with flowers! They’re perfect for space-saving and low-maintenance decorations, and flower arranging is a skill that your team can use all year round.

DIY Christmas Decorations and Baubles
Holiday parties are considered a success when your team is engaged and having a good time. How can you get your team in the holiday spirit to get the party started? How about a remote team building activity with an online handmade Christmas decorations class?
This fun DIY workshop will get the party started as everyone gets into the Christmas spirit! Your team can create a bauble that they can hang on the office tree or take home to show their loved ones.
Christmas Cake Decorating Workshop
Every holiday needs a cake and Christmas is no exception. Christmas cakes are a time-honoured tradition, but many of us are still unclear on how to make and decorate them. Why tune into a cake decorating class and discover how to bake and create the perfect holiday cake so that it can be the centrepiece of your celebration? Spice things up with a little friendly cake-off competition, too, so everyone can show off their skills. In this workshop, your crew will have their cake and eat it, too!
Online Christmas Cooking Class
Why stop at just decorating cakes when you can prepare the entire meal? Help your team do something special and impressive for their family and friends this year. Preparing Christmas dinner by themselves is definitely going to do the trick.
But if they don’t know the first thing about being in the kitchen, don’t worry because they can take an online cooking class focused on making an extra-special holiday dinner that will impress every guest. Even if they're total beginners, this virtual cooking class will show them how to prepare everything from appetisers to gravy. When they taste their food, they'll feel like a Christmas cooking expert. You can bet your bottom dollar that their next holiday dinner party is sure to be a hit, and they'll have you to thank for!
Virtual cocktail making class
You’ve got the main course and the dessert. Now, let’s look at online cocktail classes. Learning how to make cocktails (and mocktails!) over Zoom is a fun way to celebrate the season with your colleagues. In fact, it’s one of the most popular virtual Christmas party ideas on offer! You may not be able to hang out at a bar after work, but you can still enjoy some boozy fun by learning how to mix your own margaritas, mai tais, and pina coladas at home. You can even create fun, themed drinks or some Christmas cocktails and name them after your team members. When your colleagues realize just how easy it is to make a fancy martini, they may never want to hang out at a public bar again.
We want you to focus on having fun, so once you choose one of our Zoom party ideas, leave the rest up to us. Every participant will receive a DIY starter kit that includes the tools and materials you need for the cocktail making class.
