As you know, part of my job description includes planning our company year-end party. While it’s a fun task, it’s also one that comes with a lot of work and a lot of stress. The fun part is I got to pick the venue, the food, the music and decorations. The not so fun part is I pick the venue, the food, the music and decorations and most of the company judges me for it.
Before everyone arrived
My fears and stress were for naught. I heard nothing but great things from people (some of whom didn’t even know I planned the party). There was plenty of food, plenty of drinks. And people seemed to be mixing mingling and generally have a good time.
My favorite moment of the night was around 10:30 when there wasn’t much left for me to do. I picked up a slider (or two) and sat down with some of my favorite people in the world with a glass of wine for a few minutes to bask in the glow of it all.
With Erin right about 10:35
A special thanks to the staff at Sodo Park/Herban Feast, especially Nola and Dana who were Ah-Mazing. Should you ever find yourself planning an event, give them a call. Thanks to my co-worker, Natalie who helped out, even though she didn’t have to. And the lovely folks at Butler Valet. To my friend Sam who was HUGE help with the playlist.
What about you guys, are there company holiday parties to attend this year? Where do you like to have them? I’m already thinking about next year.
