Time to bring up the Christmas mood by making your workplace merrier and brighter. Decorating the office can also be a great team bonding moment while making your workspace livelier for Christmas.

White lights project a subtle glow, giving a warmer scene in the office. It’s best to unplug them if the office is close to avoid the risk of fire hazard. You can string them along the top of the cubicle dividers as well. Garlands are a good alternative to add a holiday flair while grabbing the attention of your colleagues.
2. Deck out your desk space with decorations
Get yourself a mini Christmas tree to display on your desk. An artificial tree will suffice compared to getting a real one considering it would be costly. You can put up lights, ornaments and other decorations to surround your Christmas tree. Just don’t let your decorations take over your neighbour’s desk space. You can choose to display a Christmas tree by hanging on your door, wall or the window as well. Attach it with a removable adhesive hook to prevent from damaging the office walls or windows.
