Celebrating your Birthday at Work

There are many ways to celebrate your birthday; however, most people usually dread the thought of having to spend their birthday actually working. Even though many people celebrate their birthdays while they’re in the office or at work all the time, chances are that most of the time they’re wishing they were at home enjoying the occasion with their family and friends. But if you absolutely can’t be home on your birthday or at least celebrate it in the way that you want, there are some great birthday ideas which you can bring to the office in order to celebrate your birthday and enjoy this, “Happy Birthday To Me” day!

Birthday at Work Suggestion #1: Liven up the place! If your workplace doesn’t have strict policies and regulations on what you can and can not wear then you may as well come dressed like it’s your birthday! This doesn’t mean showing up in your actual “birthday suit,” but it does mean that you should wear whatever you want to show that it’s your birthday to all your coworkers! For example, wearing a birthday hat and taking in one of those birthday blow-horns shouldn’t be out of the question. If you are someone that doesn’t mind the attention and loves to receive “Happy Birthdays,” then these are some fun suggestions so that you can have more fun in your office with your coworkers.

Along with the party hat and birthday party blow-horns, one should also not let their coworkers feel left out in the process. Taking more than enough party hats and birthday party favors is a good idea to get everyone involved!

Birthday at Work Suggestion #2: Have your cake and eat it, too! There’s nothing that says that you can’t celebrate your birthday at work by bringing in a birthday cake. If you know that you’ll be at the office for pretty much the whole day then you should definitely bring in a birthday cake so that you can share it with everyone and have a big piece of the cake by yourself!

Another suggestion that could go along with bringing in a birthday cake is to make up a birthday brunch, lunch, or some sort of potluck dinner at your office. Of course, these things will probably need to be cleared with the big boss first, but they’re good ideas to celebrate and snack on some munchies if you’re in the office for the whole day of your birthday!

Of course, you could scrap all these ideas and suggestions about celebrating your birthday at work and just skip a day at the office to be home, relax, and spend time with your family and friends. Your workplace may not look so kindly on this idea, but who wants to work on their birthday, If you absolutely have to, though, taking into account some of these suggestions would be the best ideas ever for celebrating your birthday in the office!
