Most companies celebrate a coworkers Birthday with the traditional card that’s signed by coworkers, a cake, maybe some snacks, and on those special birthdays ending with an zero (you know those), you may receive balloons or flowers if you share the magic number with your coworkers.

Why not think outside the box and do something fun & unexpected by having a Birthday Party Theme for a coworker.

Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with the traditional card giving, & cake to celebrate ones big day but, how fun would it be to decorate the birthday persons cubicle with a theme based on their favorite hobby, last vacation, favorite sport, or base the theme around a holiday that falls in their birthday month.

Go ahead, throw a themed office birthday celebration and see the surprised reaction from the birthday coworker.

Here’s just a few ideas to decorate a coworkers birthday cubicle.

All the decorations can be found at a party supply or $1.00 store.

  • HAWAIIAN LUAU THEME: Leis, grass skirt, tiki drinking mugs, palm trees, beachcomber straw hat, little umbrellas to put into your drinks (non- alcoholic).
  • WESTERN THEME: Cowboy boots, cowboy hat, vest, bandana to tie around the neck, so little horses to place on the desk, and a lasso.
  • SPORTS THEME: Baseball, football, basketball, soccer, golf, and hockey.
  • MARDI GRAS: Lots of beads & feathers, masks, in the traditional colors of yellow, purple & green.
  • CASINO: cards, dice, casino chips, fake bills, coins, a little slot machine & roulette table.
  • BEACH THEME: Sunglasses, flip flops, sand, plastic fish & sharks, beach balls, shells & star fish, maybe even a little goldfish bowl placed on the desk.

These are all great ideas and seem fun but our boss would never go for it. Probably a few decorations on the birthday person’s desk would be okay

My office is too open to do anything like that. We bring some snacks and put a small sign on the person’s desk. That is about it.

I like the beach theme. I think if one doesn’t go overboard, but has just get a few small items, our supervisor would be ok with it. It’s always a good idea to celebrate the people in your life, even co-workers. Who knows what they’re dealing with in their personal life so this small recognition could really brighten their day.

A casino themed birthday party would be awesome. I’m sure my boss wouldn’t mind the chaos if it meant winning a couple of extra bucks

I grew up watching Westerns so this idea really appeals to me. I even vacation at Dude Ranches so if any of my co-workers read this, I’d love a pair of chaps 😊
