Whether you work at home or a shared office, you can decorate your office desk for Halloween to add some fun to your work week (as long as your boss allows).
Here are a few ideas for how to decorate your desk for Halloween.
Will you have a Halloween theme to your office desk Halloween decorations?
Perhaps your theme will be black cats, spooky eyes, funny tombstones, spooky Halloween, gross Halloween, bugs, vintage medical, police investigation with caution tape, fall festival, pumpkin party, or candy fun.
Having a Halloween theme to your office decorations is optional.
A traditional decorating color scheme for Halloween is orange and black.
Consider using a more non-traditional color scheme such as purple and orange.
The best part of Halloween is the candy.
You will most likely have the most popular desk in the whole office if you give out candy.
You can decorate pumpkins relating to your job description.
For extra brownie points, carve a pumpkin with the company logo or name.
You can also use your company's products or other everyday items specific to your workplace to decorate your pumpkins.
Avoid Sound Effects
Avoid sound effects when decorating your office for Halloween.
Many people use the phone and spooky sounds are unprofessional.

Don't Interfere With Work
If you do decide to decorate your office desk for Halloween, make sure it does not interfere with work.
Decorate during your lunch hour or after hours.
Don't have the Halloween decorations get in the way of your ability to work.
Remember that whatever you put up must eventually be taken down.
