TGIF! It’s time to spice up your Fridays at the office with some fun and exciting themes. Fun themes are one of the best ways to get. your team involved and excited to participate in office culture.
We’ve made a list of fabulous Friday themes that will have your colleagues eagerly awaiting the end of the week!
Unite the Team with Friday Theme Ideas for the Office
- Team Building Exercises – If you have more than one department working together in your office building, then this is a great way for them to bond over time spent together outside of work. Employees will love these types of events since it gives them an opportunity to interact with each other beyond just being co-workers at an office environment.
- Appreciation Events – If there’s someone who has done something extraordinary at work, perhaps even saving lives on multiple occasions or putting in extra effort every day because they care about what goes on around them, then this type of event could be very rewarding! Sometimes all we need is a little recognition from others who matter most—those closest around us such as family members/friends/coworkers…etcetera).

2. Wear Your Favorite Team’s Jersey or Sports Gear
If you’re a fan of the New York Yankees, wear one of their jerseys to work. If you’re a huge New York Giants fan, don’t be afraid to wear your Eli Manning jersey!
If you’re not into sports, wear a jersey from a team you would like to support. Maybe there’s an underdog in sports that you think deserves more attention and recognition. Or maybe there are two teams on opposite sides of town that have always been rivals. Choose a side and get creative!
3. Pajama Party
Who says you can’t be productive while wearing your comfiest PJs? Roll out of bed and into the office for a cozy day of teamwork and relaxation. Just make sure to leave the fuzzy slippers at home!
4. Dress Like A Kid… Again
While it may seem like a silly theme, dressing like a kid again is one of the best ways to bring some spunk and playfulness into your office. Encourage team mates to wear clothing with their favorite childhood character, show, activity, or game.
5. Twin Day
Pair up with a coworker and dress identically from head to toe. It’s a fun way to foster teamwork and create hilarious moments as you navigate the office as lookalikes.
6. Dream Up A Vacation Destination Theme
Dress like tourists: Get your coworkers involved by bringing pictures of their destination and dressing up as tourists!
Bring a souvenir: Buy or make something that represents your destination and bring it in for all to see!
Bring postcards from around the world (or just from your town) and pin them up on the wall so people can see where they could go next on their next trip abroad (or even locally).
7. History Throwback
Decide on a theme for your office decorating and go with it! If you’re doing something more modern like the 1920s or 1960s, try to find some vintage props and furniture to decorate with. If you’re doing something more medieval or Renaissance-y, make sure everyone’s wearing appropriate clothing for their roles as well as having accessories like wands or crowns that fit into their costumes’ themes. Try to incorporate elements of each character’s culture into the decorating—not just using pictures of castles (though if they exist they’ll be great too) but also things like tapestries depicting heraldic devices on shields or armors, paintings by famous artists from those periods, etc., so that everything feels connected together instead of being thrown together randomly.”
8. Superhero Showdown! (or Super Villains)
On this day, everyone in the office can dress up as their favorite superhero or superheroine. And if you’re feeling particularly creative, make some superhero-themed snacks to serve.
Whatever the case may be, it’s sure to bring extra energy, excitement, and kick-butt power into the room.
9. Wine-down Friday
Wine-down Friday is a great theme that you can use to promote the idea of casual Fridays. This will allow your employees to let their hair down and enjoy themselves without being too over the top.
Set up a relaxing atmosphere with wine, cheese, chocolate, cheese, and flowers. Also consider adding some relaxing music and mood lighting to enhance the atmosphere.
10. Foodie Fridays
Have a simple potluck where the office provides the bread and condiments for sandwiches, and everything else is up to the team. A few ideas:
- Vegetable dish or salad
- Chips & dip
- Main course items —for example, soup with breadsticks and lasagna
11. Out of Season Holidays
Enjoy the Christmas snacks, clothes, and movies when the weather is at its warmest! Christmas in July is a fun way to celebrate holiday traditions with your favorite co-workers.
Valentines Day in August
Wrap up the summer with a day of love! Encourage co-workers to dress in pink, red, and purple while enjoying sweet treats. Consider giving little inter-office valentines to show appreciation for work well done
Tau Day in July (like Pi Day but in the Summer)
The nerdy sensation holiday Pi Day has gained popularity over the past few years for celebrating the infinite number of Pi (π)… while eating pie. The only issue with Pi day is that it happens on March 14th (3.14) which is much earlier than prime fruit season. Luckily, Pi multiplied times 2 is 6.28 which happens on June 28th and is a much better time for enjoying delicious fruit pies! Have a pie potluck and enjoy math at its finest.
12. Bring Your Dog to Work Day
What’s better than a Friday? A Friday when you can bring your dog to work!
It’s not just the obvious benefit of having a companion around to keep you company during a long, lonely day at the office. Bringing your canine friend into the workplace is a great way to boost morale and help employees become more relaxed and engaged.
13. Charity Dress Down Day
Like Casual Friday but with a purposeful twist! This theme gives employees the opportunity to dress down and get together to donate clothes, money or even food to a local charity. It’s an opportunity for people to give back and also be reminded that there are people out there who need help.
14. Big Hat Day
Let hats be the crown of the day! Encourage employees to wear their favorite hats, whether it’s a funny hat, a stylish fedora, or a quirky cap. It’s a simple and light-hearted way to add a touch of personality to the office.
15. Crazy Hair Day
Have you ever had a crazy hair day? Re-create it for your co-workers! Or get even more imaginative by adding extra fun, unexpected things to your hair like color spray, clips, straws, glitter, ect.
