Cubicle Decorating Contest
Cubicle Decorating ContestIs your office really dull around Halloween? Does it seem that no one wants to do anything fun? Do your co-workers turn down every fun idea you have? Well, don’t despair. You can bring all of the fun of Halloween to work with you & have some fun with your co-workers.
First of all, if you don’t already have some sort of “party planning committee” at your office, create one! Try to get everyone involved to submit ideas for bringing fun back to the office during the holidays. You know that there are other Halloween enthusiasts like you that would love to participate & plan a great party at your office, but don’t want to be the first to admit it. (you know that ole office politics thing)
Start by getting your committee together of a few co-workers and meet a few times to gather ideas. Once you have created your game plan, you can share it with the rest of the office. Start by picking your date for the office party and set a time. (make sure that management approves of your idea as well, or it will be difficult to pull this off) You can create some eerie flyers to hang around the office or you can send out a great email to announce the party. Then, announce the great contests that your committee will be holding. Some great ideas are as follows:
Costume Contest – This contest always gets everyone involved!
Pumpkin Carving Contest – Ask everyone to join in by carving a pumpkin. To make this contest fair, make sure they bring in their pumpkin in a brown paper bag so that no one else sees who carved what pumpkin. Then, when it comes to the judging time, each pumpkin is then taken out of the bags.
Cubicle/Office Decorating Contest – This contest will bring out the devil in everyone! This is where you will find all of the hidden talents that your co-workers possess or start a decorating war! You can make this contest open to any kind of Halloween decorations, or you can choose a theme that everyone must use for the contest.
Candy Corn Counting Contest – Fill a large jar with candy corn and have everyone guess at how many pieces are in the jar. (make sure you count the pieces before you fill the jar) Then, after the contest, you can leave the jar in the break room for everyone to eat.
To top off your party, you can ask everyone to contribute a food dish to the party to get a large assortment of treats & dips to share. (if you bring in a raving dish, make sure you also bring the recipe too!) During your luncheon would be a great time for everyone to vote on who wins all of the contests. Bringing a little Halloween with you to work is a great way to celebrate the witching hour and have a lot of fun with your co-workers.
The Mediatonic Christmas Decoration competition has made a comeback for 2009! Each set of desks in the office were challenged with decorating their desk and immediate surroundings. All teams had a budget of 25 and a total time of 1 hour to decorate their area with the clock starting at 1.30pm on the 1st of December.
As part of the challenge we had to think up a 'team name' for our desk space, displayed in a creative way in our area.
The team with the best desk was promised to be awarded super awesome prizes, presented at the upcoming MT Christmas party. Teams are as follows:
Desk 1: Paul, Jeff, Vicki - "Miracle on 4 Flitcroft St"
Desk 2: Adam F, Jim, Pankaj, Tom, Dean - "Arnold Schwarzenegger in Jingle All the Way"
Desk 3: Mike, Ross, Gabor, Vickie, Phil - "Marzipan Lions"
Desk 4: Sarah, Jon, Gareth, Adam - "Team Ceiling Cat"
Desk 5: Shabeer, Julius - "Army of Two"
The judging criteria are: - Team name - Quality - Creativity - Awesomeness
After over an hour of lunchtime madness full of cellotape, PVA glue, tinsel, lights, glitter, baubles, blue tack, tacky-ness, Christmas trees, cardboard, snowflakes and LOTS of fun, these are the results of our hyper-super-mega awesome Xmas decoration extravaganza.
Team 1, Miracle on 4 Flitcroft Street
Team 1 opted for a rainbow made of baubles as their centerpiece, finishing off their desks and surrounding areas with tinsel, lights and trimmings.
Team 2, Arnold Schwarzenegger in Jingle All the Way
With plenty of custom made decorations including a special Must.Eat.Birds mobile, paper chains and a wall covered in post in notes, Team 2 went all out in their bid for Christmas Glory.
Team 3, Marizpan Lions
The Marizpan Lions roared into action at lunchtime, running to the shops for some last minute preparation before putting up an eclectic mix of decorations that included a hanging reindeer, pink christmas tree, a house made of gingerbread and a golden praying mantis.
Team 4, Team Ceiling Cat
Above the desk of team 4 ceiling cat gazes down approvingly on their enormous Christmas tree, complete custom baubles, MC Hammer with a lightning bolt and a special Christmas bananna.
Team 5, Army of Two
The Army of Two went for elegance and simplicity with a beautiful pink Christmas tree surrounded by snow.
But we need YOUR help to pick the winner!
