The next task at hand was getting the preparations for the company Christmas party completed. I can honestly say that besides placing a food order for the catering and making the party invitations, I was zero help in making this party come together. The whole effort and success of the party goes to Chris. He did it all. He wanted something fun, where people could laugh and relax and not be too serious, so he decided to have a casino night and managed to pull it all together. We had a white elephant gift exchange, a "Dundie"award ceremony, and throughout the night prizes were given out. We ensured that nobody left empty handed. The casino portion consisted of 3 tables, a roulette, a black jack, and a poker table. Each person was given the same amount of chips and given one hour to get their pot as big as they could. If they happened to lose all their chips they had to do something embarrassing in order to get back in (fyi- watching grown men do kart wheels is hilarious). At the end of the hour first, second, and third place winners were awarded with gift cards.
All the time and energy that went into this night was worth it. The evening was a blast! Chris got so many compliments on how it was the best company party they had ever been to. Needless to say I was pretty proud of him. He knows how to throw quite the party.
The office transformed.
