The company I work for puts on the most epic in my humble opinion Christmas party EVER. There is just something about going to an out-of-town resort with a free room in said resort, meeting co-workers from other branches/cities*, winning prizes and partying hard until late in the evening/early in the morning. This year's party had an 80s Prom theme and was held at The Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes... Welcome.
*The staff was amazing. Definitely topnotch.
*Loved the Bath and Body Works freebies.
* Robes? Yes please.
*Loved, Loved, Loved the extreme pillow-top mattress and super soft bedding.
*The gift bags were great, with the random 80s candy however the best parts were the free drink tickets c/o of two of our vendors, the bottle of Smartwater and the Advil. They knew exactly what we would need. Ha.
*Yep, that's my Long Island Iced Tea right there. The meal was good but the only salad dressing option was bleu cheese, which I'm not a fan of.
*Me, Sue, Teena
*By the end of the night, I had switched to vodka and cranberry juice**.
All in all, it was a great night!
*I speak to the majority of my co-workers on the phone multiple times a day but with the different branches scattered across the state, I have never spoken to almost all of them face to face. The party provides a great opportunity to put a voice with a face.
**After my first Christmas party, I learned quickly that it is necessary for you to bring your own beverages to the hotel so that you can refresh your own drink. A person could go broke at these ritzy resorts. Ha!
