CBS' show Undercover Boss has quickly become a fan favorite - and for good reason. Each week, the show follows a different high-level chief executive as he or she goes incognito to pose as a company employee.
Here at Celebrations we're super excited about Undercover Boss because our very own President, Chris McCann, appeared on the show! Cameras followed Chris as he grew a beard, lived at a budget hotel and headed to work everyday for two weeks as an employee for our parent company, 1-800-Flowers.com.
To celebrate, we of course, hosted a viewing party.
Take a page from our book and host your own Undercover Boss viewing party. Invite your co-workers over for a few drinks and some good food. Sit back, play a few games and then watch the latest episode of the show. Who knows? Your boss may just be starring in it sooner than you think!
Opt for a buffet of sweet treats and salty snacks for guests to choose from. These bite-sized foods are ideal to munch on while watching the show.
Savory Snacks and Sweet Treats
Pass out a Smiley Face butter cookie to each of your guests to reward them for all the hard work they do.
No viewing party would be complete without popcorn! Head over to The Popcorn Factory's website and order a few of the favorites. Not only are they budget-friendly, they also come in delicious flavors!
Have some of this Peanut Brittle to munch on as you watch the show...just make sure you order enough! Guests will certainly be grabbing for these sweet snacks.
Cheryl & Co.'s mini brownies are a delicious way to thank guests for coming. Plus, the brownies come individually wrapped. Another reason they're the ideal favor!
If you really want to impress your guests we suggest making a few homemade dips. It's easier than you think! Here a few recipes to try:
Co-Worker Happy Hour
Skip the complicated cocktails for this party and pour your guests a glass of wine to indulge in. WineTasting.com makes it easy to find the right bottle, even if you're no wine connoisseur. No matter your budget, style or favorite type, you'll find what you need quickly, and you'll save more if you order a case.
And nothing says "a hard day's work" like a beer.
Make it a Weekly Party
After a long work week, or before the start of another one, it's a good idea to unwind and have some fun. The great thing about this viewing party is that you can make it a weekly event.
If you make this viewing party a weekly event at your office, have some extra fun with these party game ideas.
Take this viewing party up a notch with fun office party games like Coffee Cup Pong and an Office Scavenger Hunt.
Get to know your boss. They may occupy the corner office, but they're normal people just like you and me. Pay homage to the man or woman who runs the show by playing "How Well Do You Know the Boss?"
Craft a list of fun questions to ask your boss. Avoid personal topics and stick to more generic ones like, who is your favorite athlete? Have him or her answer the questions in front of everyone before the show starts, then after it's over, quiz your co-workers. Hand out prizes to whoever has the most correct answers!
If Sunday night isn't a good time for everyone, you can all stay after work one night a week to watch the show together. Just head over to CBS.com, and watch the full episodes online.
