Low-Cost, Fun Ways to Recognize Holidays!

Melissa Salinas,
Embassy Suites Austin – Central, TX

It’s always the little fun things that impact team members the most. For every holiday, I find a cheap, easy, fast, and fun way to celebrate and boost morale. It’s easy finding leprechaun hats, bunny ears, Mexican sombreros, etc. at dollar stores and small accessories to go with them. The laughs TMs get out of these funny hats is what impacts them the most. Talk about finishing the day with smiles!

Managers got together and baked cupcakes decorated with green icing for St. Patty’s Day. On Cinco de Mayo we purchased Mexican candies and cookies and had a small celebration in the break room. Halloween is always fun with the Embassy Suites Pumpkin Carving Contest and a hotel wide costume contest. Celebrating all holidays both in big ways and small boost TM morale by always keeping it fresh and fun.
