It’s official.

Monday 19th to Friday 23rd September 2016 is this year’s Working Christmas Trees Week.

Founded by eFIG, the interior landscaping trade organisation, it is intended to promote the benefits adding Christmas trees and decorations to your workplace.

The importance of well designed Christmas decorations are well understood in the retail and hospitality sector — A shop, hotel or restaurant would be crazy not to take advantage of the opportunities that the festive period provides.

But it’s important for other businesses too.

Festive cheer in the workplace

As every people-focused business knows, creating a great working environment is essential for a happy and engaged team.

With the festivities on everyone’s mind in the build-up to the Christmas break, what better way for your workplace to participate in the buzz than with an attractive tree and decorations ^mdash; decorated to match your company’s style and colours.

For a relatively small outlay, Christmas decorations let you take advantage of the seasonal goodwill and also reward your team for their hard work during the year.

And, of course clients and visitors to your workplace will notice too.

In fact, given the festivities will be at the forefront of people’s minds, not participating means your Christmas decorations will be noticeable by their absence!

At Inleaf, we provide real or artificial decorated Christmas tree rental to businesses of all types and sizes, looking after everything from the design and install to health and safety. Plus we take it all away at the end of the festive period.

Book early — like the Christmas party

As you will know from experience, when organising your staff Christmas party it’s essential to book early to secure the right venue and dates. Popular slots get booked up quickly, and you don’t want to be left with a miserable Tuesday afternoon.

It’s the same with your Christmas tree and decorations.

Most businesses want to have their schemes installed at the end of November and removed just after Christmas — that way they’re in place throughout the festive period. After all, it’s no good putting your tree up just before everyone leaves for the Christmas break.

But, these popular dates get booked up quickly and so it’s important to book early to avoid disappointment.

Also, the more time you have the more time there is for us to create the perfect scheme for your business’ brand, values and décor.
