I've had too much to think.

My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, and I'm going for a "The Office" (the American TV show) theme.  I'm going to print out pictures of the characters on transfer paper, and then iron them on to blank canvas tote bags for parting gifts.  I'm also going to print out pictures of the characters on photo paper and hang them around the room, along with some Christmas lights for good measure.  Do you have any more ideas for games, decorations, activities, etc.?

You could have all invitees bring their favorite novelty mug (like they would for their desks at work) and serve drinks that way.  That would also save cleaning up (or trees/plastic, if you normally go the disposable route), come to think of it.

You could play "Pin the Lost Benefits on the Boss," and make up slips of paper with things like "dental plan" and "five extra vacation days" to pin on a big boss picture.  And serve finger foods more like vending machine foods -- individual packs of M & Ms, little bags of chips, that kind of thing.

You could also give everyone a stick on name tag with a job and character description when they arrive, like "perky receptionist," "tightly wound accountant," or "abused temp."

Be sure to put yellow sticky notes in the goodie bags, too...

Man, I wish I'd thought of this theme for my partner's birthday party.  But we did "Snakes on a Cake," so that was pretty darned entertaining, anyway.

Good luck -- sounds like fun!

I love the Office!

Hmmm...you could have a yankee swap! Tongue

You could play Limbo like they did on the booze cruise...

Ummm...it's hard to think of idead, isn't it?

OH! You have to play some of those games they were playing on the episode with the fire, like Who Would You Do, and On a Deserted Island (or whatever it was called)

And you could try to incorporate bobbleheads somehow...

That's about all I can come up with.

Wear a pink slip over your clothes and chase everyone.

Have a water cooler and a gossip sheet. 

Use red tape for decorations and have everyone cut off a piece to enter.
