FWW Holiday Treecomments (5) December 22nd, 2010 in blogs
We had our company holiday party last week. It was nice. We closed the office at 2:00 and headed over to our old Distribution Center (nicely decorated for the holidays) for some cocktails, appetizers, service awards and raffle prizes.
But there was work to be done before the party. Each department was given some money and a 3 foot Christmas tree that we had to decorate and load with gifts underneath. The idea was to come up with a theme for the decorations and gifts. Then at the party all the different trees would be raffled off and if you were lucky you would win a tree and the gifts underneath. Naturally, the gang from Fine Woodworking came up with Santa’s Workshop for our theme. A number of our editors and art staff were Santa’s elves and I think they made some pretty nice stuff. The lucky winner went home with our silly tree and some great gifts:
a turned bowl
a turned plate
a cutting board
2 picture frames
a little box
and even the tree topper
Happy holidays everyone.
