Office Space: How to Celebrate Halloween
What are a few simple and fun ways to celebrate Halloween at the office?
- Decorate the office
- Have a Halloween-themed day at work
- Turn the office floor into a murder scene
- Make Halloween-themed drinks for the after-party
When it’s Halloween, working at an office space for lease in Paranaque doesn’t have to stay the same. Businesses can take this time as an opportunity to spice up the workplace by taking time to celebrate Halloween with their employees. These are the activities people can celebrate this special season in the office space:
Decorate the Office
There are many parts of the office you can choose to fill with decorations:
Walls – You can choose to stick different ornaments on the wall. Good Halloween ornaments that are easy to buy are webs. On the other hand, offices such as the events space in BF Paranaque, have glass walls that can be drawn on.
Doors – Choose a door in the office and decorate it based on one supernatural creature with paper cutouts. For example, if your department chose a vampire, you can cut from different colored papers fangs, eyes, skin, and hair.
Tables – Make mini creepy terrarium jar gardens and use them as decorations for the table. All you need is a mason jar with a sealable cap.
Have a Halloween-Themed Day
Companies who use an office space for lease in Paranaque can have a Halloween theme workday that is fun yet productive, as long as the activities don’t distract them from working.
To make a Halloween theme day, employees can:
Enter in costumes based on the theme of their team
To make the costumes more interesting, each team can be assigned a different theme to base their costumes on. IT Team can have movies, the Marketing team can have Disney, etc.
Team decorating contest
Halloween decorating is an easy way of making everyone engaged. So that the employees do not get rushed, the decorating contest can already be announced weeks or a month before. Company teams get to decorate their work area any way they want as long it follows the event. Executives get to judge, and whoever wins, gets a prize.
Set up a candy and sweets station
Since employees don’t have time for trick or treat anymore (or do they?), replicate that experience for them by setting up a candy and baked sweets station they can go to within the day whenever you feel like it. Each team can contribute to the station by bringing their own candy or baked goods. To be more organized, teams can also already state what they will bring a week before.
To make the station more Halloween-like, you can black cloth over the table. Then, top the cloth with some decorations. Place skulls, fake bloody hands, eyeballs, plates to act as space for the baked goods, and pumpkins to place the candies. Lastly, place black candle holders with lighted candles to make it spookier.
Office Floor Murder Scene
When one thinks of Halloween, death comes to mind because it is something so many people fear. Therefore, having a murder scene in the office space as a decoration seems to make so much sense. To stage a fake murder scene, you will need a space that no one really walks on:
- Washable Red and Blue Acrylic Paint
- Duct tape
To make the tracing a person, you will need duct tape. Let someone lie down on the floor. Next, trace their body by placing duct tape near his or her body. Afterward, mix 3 parts red paint and 1-part blue paint to make fake blood. Afterward, dip your brush on the mixture and paint near the duct-tape body.
If you plan on having a small Halloween party at an event space in BF Paranaque, all you need is to serve some food and drinks. Make it more fun, by creating some spooky alcoholic drinks that can easily be made in your workspace:
Bloody Vampire Kiss
- 3 tbsps. vodka
- 3 tbsp. Champagne
- 2 tbsps. strawberry juices
- 1 tbsp. strawberry syrup
- 1 tsp red food coloring
Pour all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Pour the mixture over a small glass with ice. Put more food coloring if the drink doesn’t look bloody enough. Lastly, top it with a clean syringe as decoration.
- 4 tbsps. rum
- 1 tbsps. lime syrup
- 1 tsp green food coloring
- 1 tbsp. Mountain Dew
- 1 tbsp. chocolate syrup
- 2 tsps. honey
- 1 tbsp. red food coloring
First, make the fake blood. Mix the chocolate syrup, honey, and red food coloring until the mixture replicates the color and texture of blood.
Next, make the drink. Mix the rum, lime syrup, food coloring, and mountain in a cocktail shaker. Shake and leave it in the container.
The last step is to decorate a martini glass with fake blood before serving the drink. Pour the fake blood mixture in a plate. Dip the rim of the glass upside down into the blood. Afterward, turn it back, put the glass in a tissue and wait until blood drips are formed from the rim. Now, put ice and pour the drink from the shaker into the decorated martini glass.
When Halloween season comes, the office doesn’t have to be monotonous, dry, and boring. Businesses can take this time to make the office space more fun and exciting by doing several activities to celebrate the season. In the office, you can celebrate by decorating the space, having a Halloween-themed work day, faking a murder scene, and making Halloween theme drinks for the party after work. But besides these, the most important idea to keep at heart is to celebrate and be festive about the child-like charms and mischief of this sacred holiday. Happy Halloween boils and ghouls!
