Every end of October, the office holds a contest for the best team workstation decors for Halloween. We usually have this Trick or Treat event for the kids at the end of the month, thus the need to spruce up the place for the occasion. And this year's theme is a no brainer...Plants vs. Zombies.
|Zombies in the office|
The following day, I was surprised to see our workstation semi-decorated already. There were plastic strings dangling from the A/C vent, balloon zombies and pea shooters! Our place was really looking cutesy-nasty and I had a feeling we had this contest in the bag!
There was also a costume contest (for kids & adults), but I wasn't feeling up for it. I did dress up as a normal zombie with the brown coat, tie and jeans...but I was missing a zombie look. Then I remembered PJ who earlier blogged about buying a zombie hat (and got stared at), so I asked if she can lend me the loot or probably have it rented. Well, she struck a better deal—she sold the hat to me at a lesser price than what she originally paid for! I r tats! T^T
We had a lot of fun taking bazillions of photos with our nicely decorated stations. Some of my officemates got some face paint to add to the spook factor. Not to sound like a braggart and all, but I really do think our effort was the best there was. It was only a matter of time before we were awarded the top prize. We were all joking about how our decor was going the be a shoo-in winner, but we still whooped for joy when it was formally announced.
I'm already thinking that if we're to have a decorating contest again this Christmas, we're going to load the big guns. Hahaha. How's that for competition?
