Funny Birthday Ideas for Co-Workers

When one of your favourite co-workers is celebrating a birthday, you can inject some fun into the workplace with creative and funny office celebrations, which are still tasteful and appropriate for work. Get ready to laugh and enjoy as you plan a fun day.


Rather than first thing in the morning, hold a surprise party at the end of the day. You can schedule a late meeting on your co-worker's birthday and ask him to deliver a presentation. Rather than discussing the budget or the new project, you can surprise your colleague with a cake, streamers, black balloons, and a framed photo of his cubicle to hang in his cubicle.

Scavenger Hunt

On the day of your co-worker's birthday, you can make her life a little more interesting and challenging by hiding her chair, phone, and laptop, and making her undergo a scavenger hunt to find them. You can get the whole office involved and provide funny clues to finding her office supplies, perhaps including a treat at the end of the hunt.


If birthdays are a big thing at your place of work, you can create some humour by pretending to forget a co-worker's birthday. To carry this to another level, you could even plan a party for something else, either a happy hour, an anniversary party, or a holiday party. Of course, you will eventually acknowledge the birthday.


You can also have some fun at the office by creating a trivia game based on the birthday person with funny facts and questions about your colleague, as well as funny prizes such as candy, fake moustaches, pictures of the birthday person, and other gag gifts.
