Hi, Baukjen here.
Last night we celebrated Christmas. We have a fantastic team here at Isabella Oliver and as much as we try to get together outside of work, it’s never easy organising something for everyone, so it was lovely to see the team enjoy a meal out together.
We chose a cosy yet beautiful local restaurant for the meal and we arrived to a fabulous Champagne reception, with a festive splash of crème de cassis thrown in for good measure. The table looked gorgeous, and was adorned with crackers and drinks so it was easy enough to get into the Christmas spirit! A three course meal followed – the food was delicious, I think it is safe to say everyone really enjoyed it.
Possibly the best part of the night was exchanging our Secret Santa presents. We all placed our gifts under the tree and Ania took the role of Santa, presenting everyone with their gift. I think she underestimated how many there were and almost died of kisses as she gave them away, which is very apt if you read our previous blog!
Unsurprisingly, everyone was feeling a little tired this morning but we all had a great time so it was definitely worth it.
I just want to take this opportunity (on Geoff’s behalf too) to say a huge thank you to the team for all the fun, hard work and commitment this year and wish them and you, a very merry Christmas. X
