7 Ideas for the Company Christmas Party

Buff Butlers   /   Dec 4th, 2018   /   0 COMMENTS   /  A+ | a-

So you are the person who has been delegated with the job of organising the company Christmas party. You are probably feeling a sense of overwhelm, a mild headache and have a complete lack of ideas. That’s okay – let us help get you some inspiration with ideas for that Christmas do that will make it a memorable one.

1. Dinner party at a themed hotel

Themed hotels are becoming more popular and these offer a great idea for somewhere to have your Christmas party. You can find hotels around the UK that have a certain theme or vibe to them and who create party nights that fit in with it. From music themed hotels to old coaching houses, you can have a themed party to match your surroundings.

2. Dining in style

Maybe everyone just wants the chance to wear their very best outfits and have a luxurious evening. Then dining in style is the answer. Examples include Michelin star restaurants, upmarket boutique hotels or even five-star manor houses are the perfect type of place to have a really high-quality meal. Just check before you start arranging if you have any dietary requirements or allergies to help ensure everyone can eat.

3. Ladies only party

If your workplace is just women or you want to have a ladies only party, then a buff butler hosting it is the perfect solution. Our butlers can host parties in a variety of locations such as hotels or clubs and can take over the running of the party, so you can enjoy it too. We even have sexy Santa and elf outfits suitable for the occasion!

4. Visit an attraction

Christmas parties don’t always have to be on a night and involve food and drink. Visiting an attraction that appeals to everyone could be a novel idea and lots of places have special packages suitable for groups and special occasions. If you are all animal mad, for example, then a day spent working with zookeepers at one of the big zoos could really appeal.

5. Take in a show

Another option that isn’t all about food and drink is to go and see a show together or attend an event like Cirque du Soleil. You could even go to a music gig together if you all love a certain artist or band who is touring over Christmas. A party doesn’t have to involve sitting around a table!

6. Murder mystery parties

You can either organise these yourself or get some outside help. It can take place around the office or at a venue and involve a mystery that the team have to solve. People can break up into groups, chase clues and there could be prizes for the winners. This is also a great one if you want to widen the invitation list and involve the family as well.

7. Cocktail making classes

Drinking cocktails is great fun but so is making them. Another idea for a Christmas party is to have someone come in to teach you all how to make cocktails – and then drink them, of course! Plus there are always mocktails to fall back on for the designated drivers. Lots of fun, fruity flavours and not a drop of alcohol to be seen!

We hired a butler for a 50th Birthday party - we were a little worried as being a little bit more mature that we would end up with a butler around the same age as our sons! We had Andy and all we can say is .... brilliant! He was the perfect host he put us all at ease and took over our gathering for the next hour. He made the start of our evening so much fun and everyone had an amazing time. So if you are considering it just go for it and let them know about what would work for your group. Amazing thank you Andy, scores on the doors 10 put of 10 for your butler duties and buff well 11 out of 10 ! Thank you

I booked 2 butler's for a 50th Girls night to entertain a group of 8 girls. I was a little apprehensive as i booked as a surprise. Our butlers were Martin and David and they were absolutely fabulous. It was the best part of our weekend and will be remembered for a long time. They were very professional, fantastic sports and such good fun I really cannot recommend them enough. I would not hesitate in booking them again and all I can say is if you are thinking of booking them don't hesitate as you won't regret it. Thanks guys you made our night and the birthday girls night one she will never forget.

We had a butler on Saturday on Glasgow for my sister's birthday. He was great and so much fun.


The guys were brilliant!! Had so much fun. They got the party going


Our butlers were on time, professional and exactly what we had hoped for. They read the room well, played some great games and were generally all-round good fun. I’d definitely recommend booking with Butler Bookings, we were very satisfied with the service that was provided.

John was a butler and a gentleman! He made a good 30th into a great party atmosphere. Would definitely book again and highly recommend. Thanks again.


We were very pleased with our butler, Andy. He was an excellent entertainer, arrived in good time and got everyone up and doing games...even the more prudish ones of the group! We were a hen do group of mixed ages (from 25 to 55) and Andy adapted his games perfectly! He was super organised and so it gave us bridesmaids a break from our duties so we could just join in with the fun too. Everyone loved it and we were lucky to have him! Please pass on our thanks again! Lucy

Absolutely excellent. I hired 2 butlers for a party of 14. They were very professional and great at entertaining. Kept the party flowing smoothly and kept everyone’s drinks topped up too. Great ideas for ice-breaker games. Would highly recommend them to anyone.

Very friendly, personable butlers. Easy going and full of good suggestions. Directed a group of 20 women very confidently in games. Very pleased. Many thanks :)


I cannot fault butler bookings, communication was great from start to finish and we had such a good laugh with the two butlers, Marc and Kieran. They played games with us and always kept everyone's drinks topped up. Thank you both so much for being awesome and making my sisters hen do one to remember!


Brilliant service. ‘Dave’ the butler was amazing, served drinks, got involved in all of the games and brought lots of laughs to my family and friends. Would definitely use and recommend this service again. All 30+ of my hen party guests all came to me afterwards to say how fantastic he was with everyone, and my cousin (the bride) said he was genuinely a lovely person too. Thank you Dave and butler bookings 🙌🏼


Very easy to book. Lee was our butler and he was fab. Excellent games and a lot of fun! The hen had a great time. The hangover the next day not so good but worth it! Highly recommend!
