Nothing says you’ve officially reached the holiday season than when you begin to feast like kings and queens with loved ones and friends alike. And undoubtedly, the entire team here at Sew What? / Rent What? love to be as seasonally festive as we can possibly be. And one of the most popular celebrations we look forward to having every year is our annual Thanksgiving holiday shindig!
Last month, we were thrilled to be able to genuinely give thanks to have one another, and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with The Whatter Family in the favorite way we know how…..By having a party with tons of amazing food to choose from, high-energy music and dancing, and of course lots of selfies and laughter! Setting the scene was a super-long, covered table that spanned the complete length of our warehouse, with one of our gorgeous Classic Stardrop LED drapes adding a little sparkle and shine to the background.
Next we had the fantastic musicianship of renowned Southern California musical group Mariachi Alma Latina, who performed their beautiful and lively mariachi music for us to appreciate while eating a delicious catered meal from Rascal’s Teriyaki. A seemingly “atypical” choice for Thanksgiving, this restaurant’s heaping piles of delectable Chinese Chicken Salad, followed up with mouthwatering Chicken Teriyaki and Rice platters, appealed to everyone’s extremely happy taste buds. (And offered us a different flavor than the one we’d be eating at home for the next week straight) .
Once we finished our meals, the best was still yet to come……Dessert! This is where our “potluck genius” really shines, with each person bringing completely different type of sweet and scrumptious treats for all of their colleagues to enjoy. From traditional holiday fare like apple and pumpkin pies, to more culturally adored flan and jello and fruit, to everyday mouthwatering goodies like brownies, cookies, cupcakes and lemon bars, there was enough “sugar and spice and everything nice” for the entire company to devour–for days.
After everybody had their fill (and then some), we all got to dance and sing along with the mariachi band to try and burn off some of the calories. It’s always a blast when music and dancing are on the agenda here! Reinvigorated, we were able to tackle our projects with renewed energy and passion, which always translates into an exceptional product. We hope that you had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday this year with loved ones, too…as we could not be any more grateful to work in this diverse, innovative, and sometimes totally wild industry with–and for–our truly amazing clients!
