5 Festive Christmas Table Decoration Ideas for your Work Party


With Christmas just around the corner, its time to think about all things party. If you work in an office, chances are everyone will be getting together for a work party which might involve a delicious dinner. If you’re in charge of organising or just feel like helping out, here’s our top table decoration ideas for your work party.

A keepsake

If you’re having a sit-down meal at your party where guests have a place card, making it a keepsake means everyone has something to remember the night. A photo frame, candle or keyring embellished with the guest’s name is perfect. They can also be used as table decorations until everyone goes home.


Jars can be utilised in a number of ways for decorations. Putting fairy lights inside them makes for a fairytale whimsical effect, whilst some silver sprayed pine cones are very festive. It all depends on the theme of your Christmas party and how you can tailor the contents of the jar to it.

Gift bags

After the festive period, you are often left with an abundance of Christmas themed gift bags which have to be stored away for another year. If you have plenty to go around, place some holly or ivy inside them for a twist on the classic vase. if you can get hold of a few Christmas baubles, these can be hung on the leaves for an added sparkle. This works particularly well with smaller bags as they fit in the middle of the table more smoothly.

Combine food with decor

If you want to kill two birds with one stone, have decorative nibbles in the middle of the table which guests can pick at throughout the night. For example, half cover strawberries in white chocolate before dipping in edible glitter. This creates festive, “icy” strawberries which both look great and are delicious. They make a nice centrepiece and will be great for guests to snack on after their meal. You can do this with a variety of sweet snacks including chocolate and marshmallows. If you want to be extra decorative, put them on long skewers and decorate them around a vase like a bunch of flowers.

Utilise festive coloured sprays

If you can get your hands on some silver and gold glitter sprays, you can make any sort of decoration Christmassy. Get a clear space outside, put down some newspaper and grab the item you’re ready to spray. Make sure it’s clean and dry and use some primer which will help the paint adhere to the object. Now you’re ready to colour. Grab your paint and spray lightly, ensuring you get in at every angle. Layer up to ensure the colour is vibrant, leaving a few minutes in between for the paint to dry. If you’ve never done this before, consider doing a practice test on something you don’t mind ruining, to get you in the swing of things.
