I love any excuse to be extra-festive, merry, and eat desserts. Birthdays, major holidays, new hires, retirement, kids’ fifth grade graduation… you get the point. It’s relatively easy to bring a little festive cheer into the work place with a pleasant attitude and maybe a desk decoration or two, however, as I mentioned, I like desserts. Desserts for major Holidays like Christmas and Halloween are pretty straight forward (red and green or orange and black decorations, pies…), but, it can be difficult to come up with work appropriate desserts for holidays like Valentine’s Day. Sure when you’re a kid at school you can bring candy-grams and lollipops or conversation hearts and pink heart cookies in to your classmates, but XOXO and hearts may not be the most professional approach in the job place. You do not have to skip holiday fun because it trends towards mushiness and expressions of love; you can wish your colleagues well and be thankful for their friendships and show it through some work appropriate Valentine’s Day desserts like Oreo Cookie Balls and Iced Cake Donuts.
