Who doesn’t love a good birthday party? However, it’s not always easy to come up with a fun birthday party theme when you’ve got to keep a whole office in mind! Often times, a theme that might seem fantastic to one person can be alienating to someone else. I find the best way to go with appropriate birthday party themes for your office is to choose something that is quirky enough to inspire fun ideas, but broad enough that it allows a bit of room for interpretation.
Here are a couple of fun examples:
TV/Movie Characters – this is a great one because everyone has a favorite TV/movie character (if not a few). There’s so much to choose from as well as a large spectrum of choice in just how elaborately you want to participate. You can go all out with a Darth Vader costume, or just keep it simple with a superhero t-shirt and go as Sheldon Cooper. This theme is also a great one because it gets everyone chatting about their choices!
Colors – if you really want to keep it simple, you can choose a color family (warm colors, or cool colors) or perhaps just a set that works together elegantly (blue and silver) and use that as your theme. You can also do black and white and one bold color to give it a twist, for example: black, white and red. This kind of theme is great because it can be used for both casual and formal work environments.
Don’t forget birthday cards. Personalized birthday cards make everyone feel special!
