What would Christmas be without the Christmas tree?
Choose the right Christmas tree for your office considering the type of your business, relation with clients and an overall atmosphere among your colleagues. If your company has a strict policy, go with the classic solutions and color combinations or the colors of your firm, but if it’s a more relaxed one, feel free to experiment with various options, like choosing the white tree and colorful sparkling ornaments or even making your own tree of various different objects, such as paper, books, or anything you find interesting and symbolic.
Transform your workplace into the Santa’s workshop
Just like yours, Santa’s office is also a very busy and hurriedly place, so create an illusion that you and your colleagues also work in Santa’s fabric with boxes wrapped like presents and stacked under the Christmas tree, but also scattered everywhere around to remind everyone that it’s still a work in progress and there’s more presents to come, which can also be accented with a custom-made advent calendar to countdown the days until Christmas. Let the people know where they are instantly as they come into your working space with candy canes and ornaments hanging from the entrance hall’s ceiling or above the reception desk (if you have one). The simplest way to add some holiday spirit into your boring working routine is to set the Christmas themed wallpapers and screen-savers with some nice and cheerful messages, which will put a smile on one’s face every time he or she sees it.
The Christmas spirit should be presented in every part of your office, so find the right way to decorate each one of them. It can be achieved with cheerful centerpieces and trinkets on every desk, elegant and effective glass vases in different shapes and sizes filled with sparkling ornaments, pines, twigs and red berries, scented candles with some winter-like smell (like the mix of apples and cinnamon) and stringed lightings (equally colorful and white ones) literally everywhere you can, in order to create the perfect holiday atmosphere. You can also include many unique office supplies which will enhance an overall festive spirit even more.
Spice it up with a true holiday spirit
Christmas time is the time of love and sharing, so you should spend some quality time with your colleagues. If you work in a small office with not too many people, organize making stockings for all employees to hang them at their desks and always have some cookies and treats prepared for your clients too, which will leave a good impression on them, so they will feel more comfortable when business with you. Also, it would be good to have prepared Christmas punch to celebrate some special occasion (like ending of the shift) and hang out with other workers, but don’t exaggerate with it if you want to avoid unwanted side-effects.
If you still haven’t decorated your office, start thinking about it now, because there isn’t too much time left. Creating a Christmas atmosphere in your office is a great way to make even better working setting and your colleagues satisfied; and don’t forget that only the happy employee is a good employee.
