In the city with the slogan “Keep Austin Weird” you can bet that Halloween is one wild holiday. As you can imagine, it’s a popular time of year for theme parties. The entire month of October our party planners are busy putting together casino-themed corporate events, fundraisers and private parties.
If your company wants to do something for the Halloween holiday this year you’re in luck. Our party experts are sharing their scary good secrets for throwing an awesome Halloween office party in Austin.
Come Up With a Related Theme
Themes are great because they help give a party direction. Halloween is a pretty broad theme in and of itself, but there are a lot of ways you can give your party a specific focus. Even our casino parties can have a variety of themes beyond the Vegas Strip.
Since the options are limitless, narrow the selection by picking a theme that’s related to your business in some way. You can also use the Austin area as inspiration. For example, you could do a local musicians or college mascot themed Halloween party.
Contests Always Liven Things Up
Whether it’s a competitive salesperson or the office extrovert that loves Halloween, contests are a great way to liven up your office party. You can kick things off by having a contest to come up with a party theme. Costume contests are always a crowd favorite at Halloween. Or you can give out prizes for the employees that have the best desk décor.
Keep in the spirit of the season by making the prizes related to the Halloween holiday. Prizes can include:
- VIP tickets to OctoberFest at The Belmont
- Gift card to Alamo Drafthouse for the Halloween Spectacular
- One additional day of PTO on Halloween
