Default Christmas desk decorating contest - need ideas!

so my wife works in a big office. lots of people. and to promote christmas cheer, they're having a desk decorating contest with a nice prize.

i think that for starters, we'll go in on sunday and cover her desk top to bottom with gift wrapping paper. but i don't want to stop there, so i'm fishing for ideas.

nothing too flashy or too expensive. but i need extreme creativity. everyone will put tiny plastic christmas trees on their desks, so we need something unusual. something that will stand out.

go!

Is what's above the desk taken into consideration?
cause dangling some cool home-made lanterns can be interesting.

stormjh, what's flatpack? we have IKEA here (Budapest), but i don't quite follow...

NumberNineDream, the desk is really more of a large table. slightly curved. round legs. it's not exactly in a cubicle, but it has low (1.5 meter) walls around it. it's very open, in a large room with lots of other desks. high visibility. high ceilings too, so lanterns could be tough.

Tell her to bribe the coworkers with a fresh plate of Christmas cookies or something. Stringing lights wouldn't be a bad idea either if you could find a way to make it work.

lol, that's tougher than I thought. I was never good at this, but I'm trying to remember what we used to do in school. I'll get back to you on that.

Flatpack just means it comes in flat pieces and you put them together, they're only small, I bought one today as the girlfriend wanted one we could make together, how very twee we are.
