Ideas to inspire your office refurbishment this festive season.
No doubt you’ve all seen the Christmas markets being put up in your local town over the last few days and those of you in big cities around the UK are sure to have enjoyed watching the big Christmas lights switch-on… which can only mean one thing – It's time to dress up your office interior in time for the festive season.
Some people start too ealry and some leave it too late, so when is the ideal time to decorate your office for Christmas? You don’t want to leave it too late as you’ll only have the decorations up for a few weeks before you have to take them down again and while some may complain that November is still too early for putting the tree up, doing so can really help to put people in a good mood… which is sure to help them be more productive at work! As the 1st of December falls on a Friday this year - why not use this day as an opportunity to get festive and boost staff morale for the last month of the year.
Of course, it goes without saying that you need to have a Christmas tree put up somewhere in the office. Many opt for a fake one but if you really want to show your appreciation for your staff members then a real tree is the only way to go. And don’t forget to wrap up some cardboard boxes in glittery paper so you can put some gifts under the tree. If you’re doing Secret Santa at work this year, make sure you tell everyone involved to put their presents under there as well so people can go and have a look to find their gift.
A lot of offices leave the decorating up to individuals and allow them to dress their desks up in red, green and gold, but you can do more to the office as a whole rather than just putting up a tree. For example, you could decorate any pillars or columns you have in the building in red paper with paper snowflakes hung down and a big sign that says The North Pole on it. How about dressing your work fridge up to make it look like a snowman… a bit of fun that’s sure to put a smile on everyone’s face as they’re making their morning coffee.
Why don’t you have a specific table set up in the kitchen with lots of festive treats on it every day and have someone crafty in the office make giant holly leaves and berries to stick above it? Mince pies, gingerbread houses, chocolate truffles… any and all of these could be included so people can help themselves throughout the day. Whatever you do, don’t forget to put brightly coloured holiday napkins down, or even a few crackers as well.
What we’ve seen increasingly over the last few years is people really thinking outside the box when it comes to Christmas decorations. All you have to do is get some nice thick ribbon or some cloth and attach one strip lengthwise down the door and another going width ways, then add a ribbon where the two join and hey presto! You’ve got a Christmas present door!
