Office colleagues can also follow a theme. They can wear a prop, grab posters, and cheer together. All these things make the celebrant happier.

6) Sharing a Memory

Memories are personalized, and they take the celebrant back in the past. If you have any beautiful and worthy memories with the celebrant, you can explain and share your feelings about that.

Memories can be anything, such as vacation trips, parties, and office tasks.
