This year's holiday party theme - and the theme of our Pop Shop - is "A little sparkle, a lot of cheer!" and Amy - our party planner du jour - did not disappoint! We had a delightful private dinner in South Tampa and Amy (and her committee) pulled out all the stops to make the event truly memorable. She made the tissue paper garland that adorned the doorway, as well asglittery swizzle sticks and photo ornaments from our favorite events of 2012.
Jeopardy and Pictionary are IC party staples and our competitive nature came out during the game portion of the evening. We're so lucky to have our talented design team serve as the designated 'drawers' during Pictionary - but that doesn't mean we aren't yelling out all kinds of wrong answers before finally guessing "Ryan Gosling" to score some points!
We had our Secret Santa gift exchange (complete with dance solos for incorrect guesses) before the traditional awkward ornament exchange. The ornaments are exchanged "dirty santa" style and there was quite a bit of negotiating and bargaining before the night was over.
The one-armed elf (at least we think that's what he or she is...) featured above has been making the rounds of the ornament exchange for years!
We had such a fabulous night and can't believe there's only one week until Christmas Eve! What's the theme of your holiday party this year?
