Last week 62 of my HR peers and I got together for our bi-annual two day meeting. I was on the planning committee and we chose to do an international theme. The content/speakers is the most important part of the meeting but it’s fun to dress the tables up a bit too.
We had a large quantity of small boxes available to us for free so I decorated 63 of them. Using old maps from a 1967 atlas I had and some travel books as a starting point, I cut out squares to fit the top of the boxes and adhered with spray adhesivet. I also used some flags printed on full sheet label paper that my co-worker made. I trimmed the sides of each box with washi tape. No two were alike. Each was filled with different kinds of candy and each person received a box along with a name tag at their table. Since folks came from outisde the U.S. the boxes were easy to travel with.
They were fun to make and the room was so colorful. It made me happy that I could contribute. Do you ever decorate boxes?
