It’s that time of year again, the highly anticipated office Christmas party! With these fun celebrations, come some guidelines to make sure you have the best time without becoming the chat of the water cooler gossip the next day!

Here are some of our tips for your Office Christmas party this year:

DO Show Up – this is your chance to relax and get to know co-workers outside of the work environment. It’s a great way to meet people that you haven’t had a chance to work with, as well as getting your face and name out there and creating new networks!


DON’T hit on your co-workers – it’s one thing to get to know your co-workers, but getting flirty can make for a complicated and maybe even awkward work situation.

DO walk around and be social – it can be so easy to fall into the trap of sitting at a table with your three best work friends, but get up, walk around, mingle and meet new co-workers.


DON’T dress inappropriately – of course this doesn’t mean you have to wear your office best, it is a time for you to show your style but in a way that fits the dress code. Look at the venue for the party itself, as it will give you an indication on what to wear.

DO drink in moderation – relax and enjoy the party, but keep in the back of your mind that you don’t want to be the talk of the party the next day, especially for having one too many cocktails.


DON’T spend all night talking business – this is the one night you can be with your co-workers without the business talk. Sure, if a work topic comes up don’t shut it down, but be sure to not make it the focus of the night.

There you have it, the dos and don’ts of an office Christmas party. You are now ready to face the office Christmas party season with these tips in mind to ensure you have a great time!
