2. Have Your Work Christmas Party at a Theme Park

This is a great idea if you have a large team with loads of kids.  Think Movie World, Wet N Wild, Dreamworld or wherever is close to where you work.

3. Take Your Team for High Tea

We recently had a very fancy High Tea at Aimee Provence at Buderim.  There I had the very best scones I have eaten in all my life (highly recommend!).  High Tea is a very decadent Christmas Party – and the best part is that you can do it for Morning Tea or Lunch – so no going out at night!
