So I had this great idea last night instead of our normal night out at a good restaurant we should rent a beach house for the weekend at Sydney's northern beaches for our staff xmas party ? I thought the Saturday night would be staff only dinner at a local restaurant then we can all come back to the beach house and make cocktails and swim etc then the Sunday I want to put on a huge seafood bbq lunch and have all the spouses and kids come up for the day and then Sunday night just recover for those staff who want to stay another night?
The only thing is its a 5br home , DH and I would have 1 room, the 3 guys can share the room with the 4 bunk beds and then I will have 6 women having to share the other 3 bedrooms ( 2 queen beds and 2 singles) would you have a problem or is it inappropriate to ask my female staff to not only share a bedroom but to share a bed? (4 would have to share the 2 rooms with a queen bed ) I rang my office manager ( who is my SIL!) and she said she wouldn't care and doesn't think the others would care but I just want to see if others would have a problem with it? ( women's ages are : 29, 38,39,45,55,57- they all get on)

Work xmas party - what do you think?

Souns like great fun, but personally I wouldn't feel comfortable sharing a bed with a work colleague. I would even say you would find people who are not comfortable sharing a room.
However, your staff may have great relationships with each other and not have an issue with it. I would just hate the thought of some people being extremely uncomfortable or missing out on a great night out because of this.

I wouldn't be comfortable. I would prefer a mattress on the floor than to have to share a bed.

I would be fine sharing a room but not a bed. I would consider us a pretty close work place. But other than that the whole idea sounds amazing.

What if I got 2 of those good quality blow up bed things? But then who would get the queen bed and who would get the blow up! Or what if I put 4 women in the 4 bunk beds, 2 get their own room and I make the boys sleep in the lounge room on the lounges or blow up beds? ( the boys are 22,29 and 31)

Work xmas party - what do you think?
I personally wouldn't feel comfortable even sharing a room with work colleagues, never mind a bed. that said, I think it's all going to come down to the dynamics between your colleagues.
it's a fabulous idea btw.
not sure if I missed something big do spouses and kids get to stay? I'm guessing no if there's 5 bedrooms and ladies are having to share a bed. edited: sorry just saw the spouses and kids are coming on the Sunday.
