Preparing For Halloween At The Office

Last updated: August 7, 2020

It’s here! For some of you, the cold has now quickly taken over the summer heat. Rain is pouring. It’s sweater weather, and the holiday seasons are on the horizon. 

All our local stores have been transformed into a holiday wonderland with Halloween, Thanksgiving and soon to be Christmas decorations.

I can already picture the decorations, smell the sweet treats, hot chocolate and holiday dishes.

When bringing Halloween to work, there are a couple of things to keep in mind to make sure that you, your employees and clients all have a great time. 

encourage (SFW) Dressing up 

A fun way to bring the entire office together is by allowing everyone to dress up. This will get the conversations going and coworkers can build relationships based off of certain costumes. 

A couple of factors should be at the forefront, such as dress code and safety guidlines.  

Include Lots of Food

We have Pinterest to thank because long gone are the days where Halloween was just about costumes. Now, it is easier to learn different spooky recipes to bring into the office and share with everyone.

Yes, I am a fan of potlucks! A tradition we have in our office is to hold a contest for the spookiest dish. Although haunting, the results are delicious! 

Keep everything under control

Working on Halloween day makes for a more lax day. Even though the day is designed for a lot of fun, make sure everyoner is still being as orderly and professional as possible. 

If you choose to celebrate, have fun with your team, take a lot of pictures, and it will be a day everyone will remember as a great experience.
