How to Decorate your Office For The Holidays

Tips for Cheering up your Office Space

It’s a festive time of year! If you have visited downtown at all, you might have noticed that Fort Wayne is all lit up in the Holiday spirit! Lights, decorations and holiday music everywhere. Why not use a bit of creativity and make your workspace holly jolly for the holidays, too?

It can be a bit challenging to strike the proper balance when decorating your office space for the holidays: too much sparkle can look unprofessional, too little can make the offices look Scrooge-like at this time of year when everyone expects a bit of seasonal cheer. Here are some simple, fun ideas to bring some holiday cheer to your office.

Decorating your Desk:

  • Hang a string of lights, a wreath or some garland
  • Use holiday-themed mugs
  • Choose a snowy or holiday scene picture for your computer background or screensaver
  • Trade out your paperweight for a decorative snow globe
  • Keep a bowl of holiday candies on your desk
  • Put a small holiday rug in your space
  • Wrap a cubicle wall or your door with shiny wrapping paper
  • Display holiday cards

Decorating your Office Space:

  • If there’s room, place a decorated tree in the lobby
  • Place mini potted pine trees or poinsettias in common areas
  • Decorate with white flowers, pine boughs and holly sprigs for a celebratory feel
  • decorate office furniture with festive ribbons and bows; perhaps stick a bow on the back of your office chair.
  • Fill the office with edible decor; but give your employees and visitors a break from all the candy — use bowls of seasonal fruits as decorative centerpieces in conference rooms or waiting areas
  • hang a string of icicle lights around your workstation

It’s a festive time, but also a time to think of others. Organize an office-wide canned food drive or toy/clothing drive for needy children. Set up a Christmas tree or decorate donation boxes to display the items and inspire co-workers to bring in contributions.

Enjoy this special time of the year — whether at work, at home or at play. From all of us at Workspace Solutions, we would like to wish you a festive and fun holiday season!
