Everyone has had some type of similar awkward birthday experience, so here's a fun twist on how to jazz up office birthday parties: birthday breakfast.
Once a month, have your team (or party planning committee) pool their resources and set a designated day for birthday breakfast. Everyone contributes something-donuts, coffee, homemade breakfast casserole or the cutlery. That way, your coworkers are not bogged down by multitudinous birthdays and the stressors that ensue. This monthly event is anticipated, welcomed and helps your coworkers feel truly celebrated. Happy Birthday Breakfast!
