Plan Now For a Spooky Office Halloween!

Halloween's almost here - are you ready?

Celebrations at the office are commonplace these days, as more and more of us want to have an 'adult' Halloween party with our co-workers and friends.

Start with a policy - do you want to decorate the office or are there safety issues to consider?

If you decorate, start now in anticipation of the big day. Find inexpensive decorations at local craft stores. Items like bags of cotton make great spider webs when stretched.

Distribute candy, and ask the boss to help fund the sweets. You'll be surprised at how willing he or she will be to join in.

And last, don't forget the costume! Have a contest for the most clever costume and offer a great prize for first place.
