It’s getting so close we can practically see the partridge nestling in its pear tree, and we are awfully excited about the whole thing. Yes, Christmas is nearly upon us and we’re having so much fun spreading our clients’ festive cheer that we thought we’d share a few of the sparkly highlights. So here’s a little taster of just a few of the things we’re working on at the moment.
First up is a rather glitzy corporate do we’re putting on for a leading oilfield services provider. The venue is the stunning Girton College in Cambridge and our entertainment line-up is definitely matching up to the grandeur of the occasion. We’ve got a wonderful jazz band, a truly incredible magician, Robert Gough, whose skills will probably still not be believed even when seen! Talented pianist Matt Carter will be providing a classical accompaniment to the coffee and port, while for those preferring a slightly less classical boogie, a DJ and disco will play throughout the evening.
To help make the evening go smoothly we produced a menu selection website for guests to choose from in advance, and have even designed and printed the place cards. Can’t wait to see it all come together on the night!
Meanwhile, we’ve been helping a local tax advice firm to cheer up their clients and boost their fun-loving image by creating beautiful, handmade chocolate advent calendars. It’s the fourth year they’ve asked us to work our magic for them and we don’t think they’ll be disappointed. We’ve designed the artwork, managed the production (ensuring of course that the chocolate is of top quality…) and have lovingly boxed up and delivered all 250 of them. Client feedback has always been fantastic, and they work with some big luxury brands, so we’re delighted that they keep coming back for more.
And on the subject of luxury, a couple of other corporate gifts we are organising deserve a mention too. For the wonderful Wyken Vineyard near Bury, we have sourced some really beautiful wicker carrying baskets each with four lovely, local bottles of wine. And with our extensive knowledge of artisan makers and all that’s bang on trend, we’re managing the producing of bespoke macaroons (courtesy of Miss Macaroon) to be sent direct to clients too. The finishing touches are a lovely bespoke gift tag and branded ribbon.
Christmas is such a busy time it’s hard to get noticed in the corporate world, but we always try to put an original spin on things. And of course, we ensure there is no hassle whatsoever for our clients – from idea to delivery, we handle it all.
Merry Christmas everybody. Have fun! Now, where’s that leftover macaroon…
