10 Christmas Party Ideas That Are Perfect for Remote Teams

Working remotely boosts productivity by saving time and enhancing mental wellbeing, but it makes organising in-person team-building events a little more challenging! Luckily, these virtual Christmas party ideas provide the perfect solution – you can choose from hundreds of engaging Zoom activities, including online painting, cooking and cocktail classes.

Best of all, these virtual Christmas party activities are hassle-free. Once you've booked, we'll send you a DIY kit jam-packed with equipment alongside a link to your online class. All there's left to do is log on and learn from some of Australia's most passionate artists, crafters and culinary connoisseurs.

If you're ready to find out what festive treats are on offer, keep reading as we highlight ten unique virtual office party ideas for remote teams.

1. Mix, muddle and shake three delicious cocktails

Is it even Christmas without a tipple or three? In this virtual cocktail making class, you'll concoct a trio of lip-smacking drinks using premium alcohol and mixers.

A talented mixologist will demonstrate how to choose garnish, measure spirits and infuse fresh ingredients for cocktails that'll impress the most discerning dinner guests. Between busting flair moves, there's ample time for socialising with colleagues and a few fun rounds of trivia to break the ice.

2. Quiz and quench your thirst with mixology

Online team-building activities don't get much better than this – a virtual cocktail making and quiz class that engages your mind and senses. Guided by a friendly and passionate teacher, you'll grasp (and guzzle) margaritas, vodka martinis and negronis!

As well as shaking up a storm, you'll smell different ingredients and discover the headiest flavour combinations. Who can resist tequila and tangy lime juice or Campari and sweet orange peel?

After taste testing, your team will embody festive cheer and possess the knowledge to serve mouth-watering drink platters to complement Christmas dinner. Looking for more creative ways to host a lockdown Christmas in 2021? We've got you covered. 

3. Sip and paint like Van Gogh

Ho ho how about a virtual paint and sip class, where you'll channel your inner Van Gogh (a terrible pun, but we're allowed to be cheesy at Christmas, right)?

You'll recreate famous masterpieces like "The Starry Night" and "Vase With Fifteen Sunflowers" with support from a passionate artist. The relaxed atmosphere is ideal for tense teams who need to unwind, and painting promotes creativity through unashamed self-expression.

The icing on the Christmas cake? Painting from home means you can wear your cosies – so no need to queue for bars and restaurants in your high heels!

4. Weave a glitzy gold DIY Christmas wreath

Christmas craft classes are an excellent opportunity to hone valuable life-long skills. In this exciting online Christmas wreath making workshop, you'll collaborate and cherish some healthy competition, seeing who can design the brightest golden bouquet.

Throughout the process, budding florists will receive step-by-step instruction, and every student walks away with a beautifully arranged collection of stunning gold flowers. Thanks to the artificial material, the wreath will last for years to come, adding joy to your home interior every Christmas.

5. Craft a sustainable DIY Christmas decoration

Virtual Christmas party ideas can make a real difference, especially when they prioritise sustainability. If your team are green fiends conscious about the environment, choose an online DIY Christmas wreath making class that incorporates biodegradable materials.

When you open your kit, you'll find high-quality dried vines, botanical-inspired decorations, ribbon for hanging, metallic foliage and fresh greenery. Under the guidance of an expert, you'll weave and wire the elements together to produce a one-of-a-kind festive ornament to hang with pride.

6. Customise a zero-waste, organic skincare routine

You could buy your colleagues a festive gift for the holiday season, but we believe it's better to help them make their own! An online organic beauty workshop explores how to make vegan waste-free lotions that'll refresh your skin when January arrives (Christmas food and booze play havoc with our complexions).

In this immersive course, you'll blend a make-up remover, scrub, moisturising serum, cleanser and face mask for all skin types. What's more, the skincare kit includes extra ingredients so you can continue brewing beauty products from home.

7. Soothe work-related stress with clay hand building

You've spent the whole year working hard, and now it's time to unwind. This online pottery class is a sensory adventure, encouraging participants to let go of deadlines and to-dos by immersing themselves in the art of clay construction.

Alongside mastering hand building, finishing, and ceramic painting techniques, you'll gain a treasure chest of mindfulness benefits. Pottery classes are akin to meditation because they root, calm and stabilise emotions, while moulding the earthy substance builds a stronger connection to the natural world. What better way to end the year?

8. Embark on a Middle Eastern culinary journey

Australia's lockdowns have left many of us craving a change of scenery. If travelling to far-flung locations is out of bounds, try a virtual Middle Eastern cooking and trivia class instead, designed with team-building in mind.

From the comfort of your home, you'll undertake an exceptional cultural and culinary journey with your colleagues, led by an award-winning chef, singer and storyteller. As she regales you with traditional tales and songs, you'll prepare much-loved dishes like smoky baba ganoush, fattoush and mujaddara. That sounds like a truly scrumptious Zoom party idea if you ask us!

9. Give Christmas dinner a kick with Indian spices

Christmas dinner doesn't have to be bland – use this online Indian cooking class to add some much-needed oomph!

You'll try your hand at lentil dals, mushroom kormas, egg curries, raita, aloo gobi and more! Every recipe uses fresh seasonal vegetables for maximum flavour, and your experienced chef will give you the courage to use spices in everyday cooking.

10. Indulge in the nation’s favourite office snack

The worst thing about remote working is the lack of office snacks, but you can make up for this with a tempting online cookie decorating class.

During the class, you'll decorate five cookies using sugar fondant, royal icing and decorative elements. You'll also receive a delicious and straightforward butter cookie recipe so you can recreate these delightful morsels for an otherworldly Christmas pud.
