Throw a Melbourne Cup Office Party that’s Truly a Winner
Melbourne Cup is a national showstopper, with each passing year bigger, grander and more lucrative. Unfortunately, not everyone can get an opportunity to be on track. That’s why Melbourne Cup office parties have gained increased traction over the years. With it, you’ll not only feel part of the race but also get to have lots of fun with your workmates.
So how can you kick your Melbourne Cup office party up a notch? Hint: Keep reading.
The race itself covers 3200m (two miles) and lasts about three minutes. That is an incredible 3 minutes of adrenaline rush! But did you know that the build up to the race is as fabulous as the race itself? That is right – you and your colleagues can have a blast catching up with the nitty-gritty of the race, including its history, participants, preparations and so forth. After all, the race doesn’t get off until around 3 pm.
Dress Up the Office with Melbourne Cup Decorations
Nothing adds to the race-day spirit quite like decorating the office. The good news is that several reputable online suppliers offer a wide variety of Melbourne Cup decorations including scene setters, and cut-outs of racehorses, jockey helmets, horse shoes and so much more.
Melbourne Cup latex and foil balloons. For this purpose, you can buy a set of balloons in the shape of racehorses, jockeys, helmets, trophy, horse shoes and even champagne. The latter will provide a respite in some organisations that have a flat no-alcohol during-work-hours policy.
Melbourne Cup tableware available, including racing horse, themed napkins, plates and table covers, horse racing inspired table centerpieces, scatters and gold trophies. These are just but a few fun ways to dress up your Horse Racing themed party tables.
Dress for the Occasion
Melbourne Cup fancy costumes are poised to take the office party experience to a whole new and exciting level. Get yourself Melbourne Cup fancy dress with fascinators, Jockey caps & whips, funny looking horse heads & face masks.
Organise a Sweepstakes or a Raffle
I know many companies that hold raffle contests and sweepstakes to get their employees in the Cup spirit. Ask your work mates to dress in fancy race-day fashion, and the best-dressed will take home the prize.
Be safe and have a terrific Melbourne Cup day.
