It’s easy to decorate the office in traditional ways at Christmas. You just need to trim up a regular Christmas tree and fix some trimmings to the wall or ceiling. However, if you want to do something a little more original and fun, you need to think creatively.

Ask each colleague to bring in a photograph of his or her face, printed on card. For each one, place a mug on top of the face and draw around it with a felt pen. Cut out the circle and stick a looped ribbon on the back. Hang them like baubles on the office Christmas tree. Alternatively, use your top clients’ faces this way, to show them that you care.
Christmas card tree
When Christmas cards arrive from clients and business partners, stick them on an office wall with adhesive putty, in an idealised Christmas tree shape. This should be roughly triangular with a lot of cards at the bottom, then fewer and fewer as the tree “grows” up the wall. If cards overlap a little, this is fine, as it replicates how a tree’s greenery overlaps. You will need just one card at the apex of the tree. Choose one showing a Christmas angel or star. If more cards arrive, start creating a second tree.
With the boss’s approval, use office stationery in creative Christmassy ways. For example, dangle CDs on ribbon near the door. As people enter, the CDs will move slightly and shimmer. Dangle chains of paper clips like tinsel on strings on the wall. Use red and green push pins to spell out “Happy Christmas” on the office notice board. Further, stick a strip of tinsel on desktop items, such as staplers, hole punchers and card index boxes.
