What Are Some Ideas for Theme Days at Work?

One theme for a special work day is “Out of this World.” This revolves around space, so decorations include stars, planets and blinking lights. Possible snack ideas are astronaut ice cream, Milky Way candy bars, moon rock candy, star-shaped cookies and a green-tinted “galaxy” punch.

“Spring Fever” is a workplace theme that offers a midwinter break. Decorations include flowers, beach photos and baseball pictures. Lunch consists of cook-out foods, such as hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, potato salad and fresh fruit. All employees receive live plants to remind them of spring.

Another work theme is “Office Cheer,” which focuses on happiness and humor. All employees get a personalized note explaining how they contribute to a pleasant workplace mood. Jokes and riddles are posted or emailed throughout the day. Lunch hour includes an “open mic” time, and employees tell funny stories and jokes.
