Yes, it’s that time of the year again! There is festivity and excitement all around, so why leave your work place out? Here are some sparkling Diwali celebration ideas to light up your office mood!
Deck it up: Diwali is all about lights and brightness, so deck up your office space with all things red and yellow. Traditional diyas, sparkling lights, and a grand rangoli would be a great facelift for otherwise, dull office corners.
If you want to do things differently, consider decorating workspaces with bright dupattas and Rajasthani hangings to give it a traditional feel. If your folks love spunk, add jazzy party gears like super-size goggles, party poppers, and some cut outs of crackers and sweets.
Place colorful candles and small danglers at each workstation to give them a bright, festive look.
Diwali Delicacies: No Indian festival is complete without food. So how about a week long Diwali Special Food Fiesta at work? Provide traditional food from different regions in the cafeteria all through the week and see how the excitement soars up! To make it even more interactive, you can ask employees to volunteer and set up food stalls for their peers. Award the “best-selling” dish and voila, you would have all happy smiles and (tummies) at your workplace. To do the team building bit, you can also ask different teams to come up with a Diwali special menu every day and then award the best team.
On the gala day, add some touch of tradition to the food. From menu to serving, make sure that everything celebrates the spirit of Diwali. From using ethnic table covers in cafeteria to adding meetha paan, you can play on with the menu to make the Diwali gala at your office a memorable one!
Team Activities: The main purpose behind office celebrations is to break ice and being people together. You can organize different activities on Diwali to make people interact with each other. Traditional attire is a must on Diwali. Make sure your employees dress their best. Make them do an impromptu ramp walk and give out exciting prizes to some of the best dressed ones.
Set up a “Family wali Diwali” board and ask your employees to stick pictures of Diwali celebrations with their family on it. Award the best pics. You can also conduct quick 10 min rangoli and bay decoration competitions for your teams. Bring on some great music and your Diwali gala would be a super hit!
Bright decore, good food and some interesting games make up for a perfect Diwali celebration recipe. You can mix and match these three per your office rules and make the best of this occasion. Do share with us your Diwali celebration ideas and pics. Here’s wishing all of you a happy and prosperous Diwali!
