How do you create the ultimate office Christmas party? There are some simple but big ideas that can make your event a great success, whether the idea of being volunteered to organise the big year-end event at your workplace fills you with excitement or dread. For example, if you know what to do with lighting and the size of your props, that’s more than half the battle won.
