My company Holiday Party was last night. I got this party exactly eight days before it was to happen, as the original girl planning it unceremoniously quit.
# of Employees - Approximately 200.
Well, the whole thing came off without a hitch and I'm so tired, I feel like I ran a marathon. The hotel where the party was held did an amazing job with the party location and the food - and the 3 bars kept the good cheer flowing. Main courses were Beef Wellington and Roast Turkey. One of the hits of the evening was an incredible mushroom bisque. Starbucks coffee bar and rich desserts followed the meal.
The higher-ups decided things were going so well, they extended the party an hour - it went on till after midnight. The band was a real find and cranked music that kept the dance floor packed all night. The hotel staff was stellar.
I gave all employees and guests a gift. It was a beautiful fine coffee mug with artisan chocolates and a single truffle - all in a cello bag tied with a gold bow.
Everyone had a great time but I must confess, I'm glad it's over. What's your employer doing in the way of a holiday shindig???
