It’s that time of year again!
Decorating your office for the holidays need not be a chore. In fact it can be amazingly simple! We at Griffin Office Solutions have got into the festive cheer and we want to share some ideas with you for decorating your office for the festive season!
Decorating the office can have an immediate effect on the office space giving it a fun and festive vibe.
First things first, the tree or trees! For the reception area a large elegantly decorated tree can have an immediate impact on the space. Small and pre decorated trees should be placed in specific areas around the office to add a measure of Christmas cheer! If you are working from a home office a small poinsettia would add colour and cheer!
Don’t know what to do or more importantly where to put those Christmas cards your office receives!? Why not tie a piece of string from one corner of the office to the other and hang them from it. Or use thumb tacks and place the cards around door frames or bulletin boards.
Finding yourself re-making Christmas signs every year? Why not invest in vinyl re-usable Christmas signs that you can store and take out every year! A “Happy Christmas” sign in your reception area can bring a sense of holiday cheer to your staff and guests!
Decorate the doors! Bring a sense of fun to the office by giving the doors a serious make over in your favourite wrapping paper! It’s a fun and cost effective way of giving the office a splash of colour!
DIY office snowman. Why not add an extra dimension to the office?! Your staff can make it themselves (why not make it a competition!). All you need is three white pillows. Stuff them with crumpled up paper, secure them with cable ties in a three-tiered pile, and use a marker to draw on a face and buttons. Why not add some additional elements such as a hat and scarf!
Bows sprinkled around the office add a splash of colourful holiday cheer. We advise you go for the big velvet bows, the smaller Christmas gift bows or a combination of both! Place them in various places around the office such as around windows or on cabinets!
And finally, perhaps the most simple yet impactful decoration of all is to make use of all those computers by downloading some lovely festive desktop screensavers! Why not get your employees / co-workers involved and ask them to download their favourite Christmas photo or winter scene. Perhaps a prize for the most favoured!
We hope you have fun decorating your office and perhaps you may employ some of the ideas outlined in this blog! Initially it may seem like a big task but it can be fun and can have big impact. You may notice a few more cheerful smiles in the office.
Merry Christmas to all from the Griffin Office Solutions Team
