**Before I begin, let me say that my photos came out really poorly due to the lighting in my office....**
Christmas decorating isn't only reserved for your home, you know.
We are having so much fun at work this week! We're decking the halls...er....the main lobby areas on two floors, along with the reception area...for Christmas! To kick off the festivities on Monday afternoon we had Christmas music playing, and I decided to offer up a lil' buffet of milk and cookies.
I began by emailing everyone on my floor (we have three entire floors of employees..) the following quote:
(in case you can't read it in the photo: Think what a better world it would be if we all - the whole world - had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon...Robert Fulgum) and I invited them to help create a better world by stopping by the reception area for a treat.
I served the milk in old wine carafes I got a long time ago at a thrift store, tied with little gingham ribbons and placed in a bucket of ice....
The cookies were a nice combination of homemade (by me and a friend at work) and my good pal, Trader Joe. (I adore his dark chocolate star cookies!)
I am decorating the entire reception area (more pics in a post to follow later...)in traditional red, white...and non-traditional grey tones.....
A five dollar scarf from WalMart makes a fabulous winter-time runner, a jingle bell from a place setting a few years ago (remember it here? Wow. Was it really 2007?!Feels like it was last year...)
....and dollar mittens complete the look.(Oh! And, aren't you lovin' my stocking cap birdies from Camas Antiques?)
So, how's your work space looking this Christmas season? What do you do to add some cheer? I'd love to hear!
