Decorating your office cubicle for the holidays really helps get the office in the mood to start celebrating. You probably spend lots of time and money dressing up your home for the season, but forget about your office cubicle. With the amount of time spent behind desks, you could benefit from a bit of holiday cheer there as well. A few tips on decorating your office cubicle for Halloween should get this year’s fall festivities off on the right foot.
Nothing says Halloween like candy. A fun ceramic Jack-O-Lantern or pumpkin bowl filled with miniature candy bars, kisses or other individually wrapped treats offer a welcome surprise for anyone stopping by your office cubicle. If you serve unwrapped candies like M&Ms or candy corn, use a dispenser that promotes sanitary sharing.
Home stores have a variety of seasonal decorations that are appropriate for the office, while some are not. Themed cut-outs, tinsel garlands, vintage crepe-paper table toppers, fabulous figurines, and printed paperboard decorations make wonderful additions to your office cubicle. Distracting decorations that make noise or have bright, flashing lights are probably inappropriate for most workplaces.
Natural displays of autumn’s bounty are traditional decorations for this time of year. Bright fall colors are found in uniquely shaped gourds, squash, pumpkins and Indian corn. You do not have to make any special trips to find these beauties, just pick up a nice selection the next time you are at the grocery store. These displays can easily transition from Halloween into Thanksgiving, really stretching your decorating dollar.
Even if you are on a tight budget, you do not have to go without a little holiday spice. Thrift stores and resale shops have both new and used Halloween decorations for very reasonable prices. While you are there shopping for things for your office cubicle, you can take a look at the costumes for your kids or the big office bash. Free holiday clip art is available online for you to print out in full color or give pictures to the kids for arts and crafts projects.
Whether you opt for the whimsical store-bought decorations, festive fall pumpkins and gourds or your children’s original artwork, you can enjoy the time spent at your desk so much more when you personalize your space. However, remember to keep in mind you are in a professional space, when you decorate your office cubicle.
