Decorating the office for the holidays is a big deal where my wife works. They have an annual contest this time of year where each department decorates their work space and it is not just for bragging rights. Big prizes are at stake including time off and cash bonuses!

I helped my wife brainstorm ideas for this year's competition and we came up with the idea of "Welcome to the Movies" with each cubicle in their department decorated with a holiday film theme. Everyone picked a favorite movie which included A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, Home Alone and Elf. They also threw some classic TV specials into the mix including A Charlie Brown Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Complimenting the theme they created a ticket booth and a concession stand. I found some cutouts online of the classic "Let's go to the Lobby and get ourselves a treat!" ads that used to be played on screens before movies started promoting theater concession stands to spruce up their display. My wife complimented their concession stand display with some boxes of movie candy we picked up at Walmart. I got to eat the candy as my reward for helping out.

To help their theme really stand out, I reached out to my friends at Wholesale Halloween Costumes who donated some outfits to help out with adding extra holiday cheer to my wife and her colleagues' entry in their office Christmas decorating contest. Characters from these movies came alive when the judges strolled by to see the department's entry in this year's holiday decorating contest. These costumes really made a difference helping their "Welcome to the Movies" contest win a first place ribbon.

Halloween isn't the only holiday where you can have fun wearing costumes. From the Grinch to Santa Claus, Wholesale Halloween Costumes has lots of outfits and suits to help make Christmas festivities extra jolly. They also have a great selection of costumes for numerous other holidays and special occasions including Easter, the Fourth of July, St. Patrick's Day, Mardi Gras, Free Comic Book Day, Talk Like A Pirate Day, Thanksgiving, and of course Halloween. Check out everything Wholesale Halloween Costumes has to offer over at

Not only was their a lot of fun involved with this holiday contest, but my wife walked away with an extra day off and a Target gift card for her efforts in her office's holiday decorating contest. She's having herself a very merry Christmas this year! Happy holidays to you and your family as well!
