Celebrating your birthday in the office may not be a big deal if you have only a few co-workers and a small office. However, this may be a big problem if you have a big work environment. You will have to worry about how you can treat all the people you work with without breaking your budget. There is a solution to this problem. You can still celebrate at work even if you work in a big environment. All you have to do is to set your budget and stick to it.
Here are some of the tips that you can use if you are planning to celebrate your birthday in a big work environment:
- Set your budget. Set the budget that you are going to spend for the birthday celebration. When you set your budget, keep in mind the number of people that you have in your floor and what you need to buy for the celebration. The main thing that you have to set a budget for is the food.
- Prepare food. In any office party, the main thing that you have to have is food. You will be able to celebrate during your lunch break or after office hours. Serve lots of food and make sure that everyone will get a chance to taste each dish that you prepare. You can order food from your favorite restaurant or you can cook the food that you will bring on your own. To save money, what you can do is to buy party platters of the dish that you want to be sure that everyone will have the chance to eat.
- Buy a cake. One of your co-workers will most likely bring a cake for you but just in case, you have to be ready to serve desert to your co-workers. Just buy a simple cake that you can share with everyone. Again, take into consideration the number of people who are going to join you in your lunch or dinner get together.
- Celebrate after work. If you do not have time to celebrate your birthday at work, you can celebrate after work hours. Just invite a few of your closest co-workers and go to a restaurant or a bar and order a round of drinks for them. You might even get some free drinks or desert if you celebrate at a restaurant. This may be a better environment for you to celebrate in as everyone can be relaxed and forget about work for a while.
These are some of the things that you can do if you want to celebrate your birthday in a big work environment. You do not have to spend a lot of money to have a good time. If there are other birthday celebrants during the month, what you can do is have a joint birthday celebration in the office so that you can share the expenses for the food and drinks. Doing this will definitely save you more money.
