Are you looking for a way to celebrate Independence Day around the office but are not quite sure how? Food. The answer is always food. Here's a quick--and one of my favorite family--recipes for success from Kraft Foods:
American Flag Cake
It's great because it's easy to make (takes only about 15 minutes) and share with coworkers without too much hassle, but is obviously very festive. You'll be a huge hit! Happy Independence Day!
Why Americans Are Weird
I recently read an article about a list of things that are strangely--and solely American. Here are a few of my favorites from "93 Weird Things About The U.S. That Americans Don’t Realize Are Weird":
#35-Obsession with coffee.
#84-The lack of annual leave from work.
#89-Talking about work and asking what people do for a living in great detail at a social function.
If that tickled your fancy, you can check out the other 90 ways Americans are weird.
Do you dread it? The obligatory card sneakily passed around in a file folder for the team to sign. The small team gathering in the kitchen with a last minute cake from the bakery down the street, everyone stealing glances at their watches. And the most awkward thing--what gift, if anything, do you give to a coworker you're not close to or don't even really like?
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!
