Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly!

Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly!

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful."

-Norman Vincent Peale-

The curtains close on yet another year with the magical show of Christmas! With jingle bells on silent nights, winter wonderlands, mistletoe and wine. While Santa makes his list and checks it twice, and Rudolf prepares for his sleigh ride, the entire world prepares to welcome the most wonderful time of the year. So as the sleigh bells ring, let’s deck the office halls with boughs of holly and rock around the Christmas tree. Let’s bring a little bit of Christmas magic to the office!


Christmas is all about sharing, giving and spreading the holiday joy, so gather your friends and start spreading the joy with fun and creative holiday decorations. It doesn’t have to be an expensive 10 foot tree or a singing Santa Clause. As always it’s the thought that counts. So get everyone to contribute their ideas and get creative. Some basic office supplies and a little bit of paint and glitter can go a long way. Something handmade like a snowman, Santa clause or snowflakes can add an elegant touch to the office space. If you’re feeling fancier, colorful baubles, a decorated Christmas tree, a festive wreath, Christmas ornaments, garlands, fairy lights and Christmas stockings can add more glamour to your Christmas this year.


If decorations aren’t your thing, and if your more into fun games and activities organize an in-house Christmas scavenger hunt, or create an advent calendar with little treats that your colleagues can enjoy. A classic like Secret Santa will get everyone in the holiday spirit. Little activities like guess the candy, or something silly like a piñata will definitely be the highlight of this Christmas.


You can get creative or keep it simple. You can celebrate Christmas however you like. Whether it’s a grand Christmas masquerade ball or something as simple as handmade décor, it is the thought, effort and the fun that goes into it, that makes it a merry Christmas!

Happy holidays everyone!
