2 Insanely Awesome Ideas to Make your Holiday Party the Best Ever

Are you looking for that perfect last minute idea for your holiday party?
Do you want to look like a rock star for suggesting a wickedly creative idea?  
Do you want your holiday party to be fun and exciting... and not the same old stuff year after year?

TACKY HOLIDAY FAMILY PHOTOS

Ugly Christmas Sweaters are officially everyone’s favourite holiday accessory.  Not just for hipsters anymore, these tacky gems have gone mainstream….and we love it!

What else does everyone love right now?  Photo booths.  

Why not combine the two?  Remember when your mom dressed you all up in matching sweaters and dragged you down to the mall for your family Holiday photo?  The result was a super embarrassing, insanely tacky, fabulously awkward photo sent to all your family and friends.  Well…we want you to do it all over again!  

We supply the ugly Christmas sweaters, ‘adorable’ matching props, a tacky 80’s inspired set, plus a photographer and director to capture the very best but very worst photo of you and your colleagues. Guests email the hilariously awesome shots immediately to themselves (and likely to their networks). The party goes up a notch as everyone starts comparing photos on their phones. Presto! A perfect example of what we call "Effortless networking." Things get even more interesting as new groups head back to create new "scenes" to cackle over. 

To add to the energy, we create a continually updating slideshow on display during the event.  

It's not too late to kick your Holiday Party up a notch... 
 

DRUNK UNCLE

Santa is lovely and carollers sound great, but what if someone else came to your Christmas party….someone not so lovely, but oh so funny?

We were brainstorming unique holiday party ideas for an extremely creative group, ISES Vancouver, and we thought, 'what if Drunk Uncle came to your party?' and we haven't stopped laughing since.  He is one of the most popular characters from Saturday Night Live right now but people wouldn’t need to recognize this character for him to stop them dead in their tracks.

We imagine Drunk Uncle blending into the crowd (somewhat) while the president of the company takes the mic and welcomes everyone to the event.  At the greeting nears its end, Drunk Uncle stumbles on stage and humourously (and pre-planned!) kicks the president off.  Drunk Uncle does a short (3-5 min or so) customized routine deriding the culture of the day using terms like “back in my day.”

We love when people have different reactions, and when we catch people by surprise.  Those are often the most memorable moments of a great event.   Drunk Uncle continues his ranting/complaining/singing/slurring/drinking while partying with members of your group.  The actor is a professional comedic improv actor who can play off reactions and tailor his hilarity to the moment and to your group dynamic and culture.

Even better, book both ideas with us and have Drunk Uncle make an appearance in your awkward family photo! After all, he is Drunk Uncle!
