We have a LOT to be thankful for around here at Sew What?/Rent What? Inc., and Thanksgiving is the perfect time of year for us to take a moment, sit back, feast on yummy food, and really appreciate our wonderful little Whatters family! This is exactly what we did a few days before Thanksgiving this year with our annual Thanksgiving Potluck Lunch Extravaganza. Everyone brings their own favorite holiday dish – main course, side dishes, desserts, and everything in between – to share with the entire company, and it is always a HUGE hit!

From homemade tamales and chicken mole, to pasta and ribs, to salads and rolls, to every kind of desert you can think of (including our Purchasing Agent Kim’s insane “slutty brownies,” consisting of layers of chocolate chip cookie, Oreos, brownies, and more decadence on top), we really had a taste of heaven right here in our own warehouse. We were in a complete food coma afterwards, but it also gave us all the energy needed to finish all that needed to be completed before the long holiday weekend.

With our gorgeous Stardrop LED drape setting the scene, and a fantastic Mariachi band playing in the background, it was so lovely being able to sit together and spend some time catching up on each other’s families and hobbies, and enjoy some of the silliness that the holidays seem to bring out in everyone. Having our Production Manager Araceli and Project Lead Roberto singing along with the band, these two really helped energize everyone else to get up and dance. I don’t know how we managed to do so with all that delicious food weighing us down, but it was the perfect way to end the festivities with a burst of swirling and twirling activity!

We look forward to this celebration every year, and I gotta say, every year it does NOT disappoint! We truly do have a lot to be thankful for—a amazing company and staff that we can be truly proud of, really incredible clients, an exciting industry that is never dull, and being able to help bring smiles to shows, concerts, and special events all over the country. Bring on the holidays—we’re more ready than ever!
