If so, what do you normally put?

Just a random thought post.

I was a classroom teacher for 17 years, and would decorate my classroom for various holidays. I'm a district resource teacher now, so I'm decorating an office for the first time this year - I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet!

Well, I guess I technically I decorate my workspace for the holidays. I work at a group home and we decorate for the guys that live there.

Not my personal office, no. My company puts up a Christmas tree in the lobby.

My office looks like Rudolph dropped nuggets of oldie cheer all over it. I go all out. Trees. Lights. Garlands. Allow it.

I always decorated the hell out of my cubicle. Strands of lights everywhere.

Two trees:
1. Girly - white with pink ornaments
2. Woodsy Cabin w/ owl ornaments and a tiny train circling beneath

No one else decorates at our office.

This is my first year in my own office. I probably won't decorate for the holiday. I like the way my office is decorated without holiday decor.

I have a small green glistening tree I bought for my desk at Christmas Tree Shoppes and a cute snowman ornament from the dollar store. No one else does anything in my office.

We have a door decorating contest in our office, but I'm just not feeling it this year

We work in an area. Our secretary decorates with garland and stockings for all of us. She puts candy in a couple times a week.

I have a tree that plugs into the USB on my computer and lights up.

I work part time from home now, but the company I work for I previously worked full time in office. I had a cube that I decorated with a small tree, a few strands of garland and I always put up a framed photo of whoever's kids sent me Santa photos that year.

The receptionist does still put up a stocking for me even though I'm a WAHW! The framed Santa photo goes out on my work desk at home, but that is it. I left the little tree at the office for everyone.

Yes. I work in a doctors office and we put a tree in the waiting room and other assorted decorations in the main office area. I have a 12inch tall light up snowman I put on a shelf in my office and a real pretty silk poinsettia on my desk.

When I had my own large work desk, I always had either a poinsettia or a small decorated tree on it. Never had it too decked out, just festive enough.

At the hospital I work at, each floor decorates every year. Even with the strict guidelines (patient safety and fire code reasons), we manage to make it work. We have a bright and cheery tree at the entrance of our floor, and then we decorate both nursing stations with garland and ornaments. It's always a joy to let our patients and visitors help us decorate. They light up with joy!

I used to go all out, then toned way down, now I don't decorate at all. Not one thing in my office.

I scaled down at home too; not a whole lot of decorating there either. What is funny is that I collect antique and vintage ornaments, but don't put them up in my house. Today I decorated 10 trees for a museum exhibit.

I don't even put antique ornaments on my own tree.

I work in a 3 woman office in a courthouse and this is my first Christmas there. Our newest person decorated for Halloween, so I expect she will want to do so for Christmas too. It will be fun as yet once again I guess I'm not decorating at home.

I used to do a 4 ft pre-lit tree in a decorative pot (from Garden Ridge) and a wreath on my door. Now that I work primarily from home, I do not decorate my office.

I am going to put a poinsettia in my office - DS sells them for school so I bought one. That about all I will do.

I'm pretty sure we're not allowed to decorate. I was told that when they moved into the newly built offices, a couple months before I started, they weren't even allowed to bring personal pictures. It's not in the handbook and I have 1 picture of ds on my desk.

Now the areas that customers see us all decked out. In fact we started our Christmas on MainStreet today. We have 12 model homes that are decorated, Santa and a train come every weekend, carolers, Christmas characters walking the park, snow (we're in Texas so it has to be made), fireplaces going even though it's 80, and cookies and cocoa.

I just put a poinsettia on my desk, and switch out to a holiday mug.

Yes-- a few years ago I bought a small tabletop fiber optic tree after Christmas for $2! So I put that up in my small office that I share with 2 other women. We enjoy it, as do the students who come in and comment on it.

I have several jingle bell decorations that I put up in my office. I like my bells.
