I was in charge of decorating our office at work for Homecoming! (I work at the Career Center at a University.)

When you first walk in, you walk in under rainbows.

Then you see a twister! (It had blinking lights inside to replicate the look of lightning.)

Oh noes!  The house fell on the Wicked Witch of the East!

The yellow brick road, along with instructions. Wink

From the Lollipop Guild, with love.

An apple tree from the enchanted forest.

POPPIES!! (Almost as good as puppies.)

It's deathbeforedishes! Blue gingham... check!  Red shoes... check!

The main characters came into the Career Center and we helped them write their resumes and helped them find a professional portrait for their LinkedIn accounts.

We also had job postings available as well... since we are the Career Center and all...

Flying monkeys!!

And of course, the melted witch.

It was a ton of work on my part and I couldn't have done it without help from a handful of amazing student workers.  But this was too. much. fun!

    It looks great. But forgive my asking, since I'm german I have no clue about this "Homecoming". I sure can translate it, but what's its meaning?
