Stuck on planning that perfect wine party? 🤔🍷 Don’t worry. We’re here to help. Just follow the steps below and you’ll be saying “cheers” in no time. 👇


1. Create your guest list ✍️

Before you host an event, you need to know who will be there. Is this a wine experience for the entire company, a specific department, or a small event for a project team? 

Once you’ve narrowed down your list of participants, it’s time to choose the best experience for them. ✨ Let’s take a look at step number two, shall we? 

2. Choose your experience 🌟

This step is all about catering the perfect experience to your guests. Browse through some of our ideas for some happy hour team building. Pro-tip: You can ask them their preferences! 

We offer options for hands-on learning experiences, tastings, and more. Here’s a little more info:  

👩‍🔬 Mixology Class: Have a virtual cocktail party with our mixology class. This interactive experience is a great way to learn 2 trendy cocktail recipes, and you can purchase virtual happy hour cocktail kits! An expert mixologist will walk you through the recipes, in addition to a little history behind the drinks, too. The mixology experiences also have non-alcoholic options so everyone can enjoy. 

👅 Tasting Experiences: Host a virtual wine tasting party for National Wine Day. You’ll learn the latest tasting techniques from a savvy wine expert. 🍸 If your crew isn’t big on wine, we also have tequila and whiskey tastings to enjoy!

🎉 But if you’d rather have folks BYOB and want a food-focused or interactive experience, we’ve got you covered. From cheese tastings to virtual happy hour games, we have everything you need for the perfect remote party. 

3. Is there a theme? 🙈

You don’t necessarily need a theme, but having one only adds to the whole shindig. Here are some punny happy hour themes to consider: 

🧘 The Wine Down: Debrief from the workweek, give positive feedback and constructive criticism, discuss upcoming goals, and prepare for what’s next on the agenda – all while sharing virtual drinks.

🤸 The Wine Up: This theme is all about getting pumped up. Wine not get those endorphins pumping with a bit of laughter yoga or dance class? Top it all off (or start out) with a few of your favorite cocktails. 

🍾 Pour Decisions: But, like, in an HR-friendly way. Get a little tipsy and have coworkers guess fun, wacky facts about each other in Guess Who. Or get a little mischievous in a few rounds of Two Truths and a Lie

🎨 Paint and Sip: A little art, a little wine. What could be better than wine and paint at home (especially when an expert is showing you all the best techniques). The only real decision you’d have to make is whether watercolor or acrylic is your medium. 

4. Let Confetti handle the planning 🧑💻

Once you have all your ideas together, it’s time to pass them along to our team at Confetti. 

We’ll handle everything – from scheduling vendors, creating a team drinks invite, shipping boozy supplies, and providing you with anything you need to make the best corporate happy hour possible. This way, you can have an exciting, stress-free experience alongside everyone else. 🥳

Cheers! It’s wine o’clock 🥂

Now that everything is taken care of, it’s time to sip back and relax. 😌 To get started on your own virtual wine night team building activity, reach out to [email protected]. We’re ready to plan the perfect work happy hour for you and your whole team.
