April Fools Day Pranks & Invitation Coupons

Friday, April 1st, 2011

floral invitationsIt’s April 1st, which can only mean one thing!  Last night the people at InvitationBox.com were up late scheming on all of their fellow co-workers!  It’s April Fools Day, and every year we make it a team-building experience full of laughs, fun and well, sometimes anger, with the pranks we all play on one-another.  If you’re a new employee at ibox, it’s your turn…that’s the theme! 

As you can see with the photo on the left, one of our co-workers found a highly colorful arrangement of sticky-notes on their desk and computer this morning, which covered everything from their desk to their ruler, paper pad and even a Kleenex box!  The words “I>U” were printed in tiny sticky-notes after a favorite t-shirt the co-worker used to wear.  So far, no suspects have been named and the guilty are still walking free!  Will this co-worker find out who spent an hour covering his desk from head to toe?  It may be a while before someone is brave enough to admit this one, but I must say it was one of the top pranks of the day.

I suspect there are many other pranks which will play out throughout the rest of the day, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.  It’s just when you feel like your safe that another prank comes out, and this next time it might even be on me!  What pranks have you pulled on your co-workers today or throughout the year?  Send them to us, (with a photo if you’d like), and we’d be happy to share.

But getting back to business, being that it’s April 1st, remember, and be happy, that Spring is truly here!  The weather should be warming up in the next few weeks and it’s time to get out and celebrate the cold winter months behind us!  As you shop for your upcoming spring event invitations, keep InvitationBox.com in mind!
