SEPTEMBER 2018 BLOG
Yep we are talking about Christmas!
We launched our Christmas party theme Midnight in Marrakesh. We took 3 days to set up the mini set up for the launch event.
Julia from Curious Magpie came on the Monday to help start us off the decorating. She started on the ceiling above the dance floor whilst we started cutting fabric for the tables and getting all the decorations we have already together. By the end of the first day, we could really see our visions come together. On day 2 of set up, we had to go back to the fabric shop to get more for the ceiling. It is crazy how much fabric we got through! Very quickly the marquee had transformed into a Moroccan experience.
On the evening, the marquee looked magical. It was truly amazing seeing all our hard work come together to create such a beautiful display. The feedback we got back on the night was the best we had ever received on one of our launch nights. The belly dancers were incredible! We are now super excited to set up fully for Christmas at the end of November.
Our quarterly meeting was this month to go over how the past 3 months had gone for the venue. Lots of new projects were announced which will be starting over the next few weeks. One being the Hive Awards which is a new scheme where we will be awarding our staff members for their good work. People will be allowed to nominate other members of staff but also sub-groups will be awarded together.
Ella has created a Sustainability group to make us more eco-friendly. The group consists of members of staff from every area in the business. As a team, we are going to work on recycling better and make us more economical!
