Lights, tinsel, and garland
Some of the standard decorations include things like Christmas lights and tinsel. These can be relatively inexpensive and they can make an office setting feel more alive and cheerful.
Granted, people do have to be sensitive about power consumption, tripping breakers, and avoiding fire hazards. Therefore, lights and tinsel can usually be put up and with the LED lights now it’s easier to use. Here are some great options:
Trees and wreaths
The Christmas tree is one of those decorative items that can invoke varied reactions. Whether fake or real, it is up to you (learn how to care for a real Christmas Tree). The wonderful thing about Christmas trees is they come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors so you can put one up even if you don’t have much room to work with. Here are a few great options to decorate your workspace:
If the office does not elect to put up a tree, people might still be able to hang ornaments in various places. Hang your ornaments on bulletin boards, the ceiling, and more. Here are some of my favorites:
Hanging a few stocking can go a long way for cheap. You can fill them with candy canes, and other odds and ends to decorate your workspace.
Office chairs are boring and sometimes pretty ugly. This is a simple way to decorate your workspace for Christmas that doesn’t have to cost a lot.
Stuff from home
Finally, decorations might be something that people can bring from home. This can save the hassle of storage and it can also save the company money. Granted, people have to use some discretion when bringing in their own stuff.
Sometimes people bring in things that they no longer want in their homes. Which can sometimes be things that are rather ugly. Other times people bring in items that are entertaining at first, but annoying after a short while. For example, the singing and dancing Santa is funny the first time, but the fiftieth time gets a bit much for some people.
Make Your Workspace Fun With Christmas Decorations
Overall, people should remember that Christmas decorations in the office can be fun. But that doesn’t mean that everyone will enjoy them throughout the day. Therefore, when decorating the office people should do their best to make the decorations tasteful. Also, they should not overwhelm the staff with a veritable bevy of decor. Decorating for Christmas can be fun, but people also have to work in the office environment for the last few weeks before Christmas. Therefore, decorations should be fun but not oppressive. Happy decorating!
