Work Christmas Party Ideas

If you’ve been put in charge of organising your work Christmas party this year, a candy buffet is the ideal addition that will make your function stand out from the rest. Our candy buffets are sweet, interactive and can add the special touch and style to your function room with our tailored theming. Whether you want a Winter Wonderland theme, a festive red, green and white theme or even if you want your corporate colours, we are able to create and design your candy buffet to suit these requirements.

Our dedicated Events Manager will be able to help you along the way to create your perfect candy buffet for your colleagues. If you have a specific theme already picked out for your party, let us know and we can talk through ideas for the buffet, feel free to send through your mood boards and we will be able to work with your ideas. We have a large range of props and centrepieces to cater for different themes but not only this, our graphic designer can create almost anything for your custom artwork to ensure your theme is prominently displayed on your candy buffet. To assist those who are unsure and don’t have your theme picked out or you’re struggling to come up with ideas, here are some that we can offer you for you to think about.


There is nothing that screams Christmas more than our festive and traditional red, green and white themed candy buffets. We have various candy options in red, green and white to fill your candy jars with which we can discuss together. Our vast range of Christmas centrepieces and props for your table will help tie in the theme and bring a joyful vibe to your function room.

Winter Wonderland

A staff favourite! The Winter Wonderland theme is a stylish addition to your work Christmas Party. Our elegant white and blue candy options displayed in our gorgeous apocothary jars will create a magical and illuminated backdrop to your work Christmas party. We are able to include winter decorations and accessories to your table and our stunning silver table wear complements the icy theme.

Primarily Male work environment

If your work environment is primarily male, we can create a sophisticated chocolate candy buffet to cater for the chocolate lovers. We have a vast amount of candy options to choose from, including chocolate honeycomb, chocolate malt balls, choc cherry bites, chocolate bullets… the list goes on.


Primarily Female work environment

If your work environment is primarily female, we can create a fun and stylish floral or garden party theme. We have turf risers, tea-cups, silk flowers, all in which we can style on to your table with bright coloured candy for a fun summer themed work Christmas party.



Planning a work Christmas party that welcomes your colleague’s kids and family members too?  A candy buffet is perfect for this! It caters for all ages and the design can be colourful, creative and fun for the kids to get involved in.


This is your golden ticket to creating the best work Christmas party ever! The theme is suitable for all ages and it is just so much fun! From large lollipops to bright colourful candy, we can create an exciting buffet that everyone will love. It has to be the ultimate fantasy destination for all sweet tooth lovers and what better way to share this with everyone than at your work Christmas party.


Prefer to stick to your corporate colours? No problem! We can tailor the candy buffet to be in your corporate colours with your company’s personalisation so all your guests take home your logo on the candy boxes.

Why is a candy buffet the perfect choice for your work Christmas Party?

Because a candy buffet is a crowd pleaser! It’s not just for the kids. We know from experience that your colleagues will be the ones who turn into kids on the night and you’ll find yourself miles behind everyone lining up to pick your treats from the seamlessly styled display. It is also the perfect icebreaker for guests as they countdown the minutes until it opens. Your guests will love being able to nibble on the sweets throughout the night and also take them home in their candy boxes as a reminder of your special event.

Booking a candy buffet with The Candy Buffet Company is stress free – we all know how crazy the silly season gets and the last thing you need is additional stress added to your busy days. Our candy buffets are all-inclusive with the full set up and dismantle included in the hire price. Our dedicated team will talk you through everything, from designing your buffet in your chosen colours, creating custom artwork for your candy boxes with your corporate logo, to contacting the venue to arrange our set up and dismantle times. You can even hire one of our lovely attendants to look after your candy buffet so when the night gets rowdy and things start to get a little silly, we can be there to assist you to fill up and hand out your gorgeous lolly boxes.

So, don’t stop here, end the year the right way with The Candy Buffet Company. Your colleagues will be talking about your candy buffet from your Christmas party well into the New Year.

The Candy Buffet at Galleria on Monday was without doubt a popular activity for our customers/tenants. The line up of people was consistent for the entire time from 1.30-4.30pm. At times the wait in line was up to ½ an hour. There was a buzz around the property and anecdotal feedback was all very positive. It was a great way to enlarge our Sweet Christmas campaign and bring traffic down to the Galleria Food Hall. I would definitely consider using the idea again for future campaigns and events. The Candy Buffet presented very well, it looked extremely enticing. The mix of candy was good and our Candy Bar Stylist and Attendant – Zach has great. I really can’t fault the service. Beautiful job, well done.

Thanks for all your help for our Corporate Christmas party. The candy Buffet was definitely what made the difference this year. Everyone is raving about it, saying how wonderful it looked and what a great experience it was having to line up to pick your goodies like when we were kids! The Candy Buffet was definitely the cherry on top. It was fantastic. Thank you!
