“I should hate to be predictable.” Mary to Matthew at the alter.
The tablescaping teamwork adventure was such a fun experience! We ended up in third place trailing the HGTV tables but you couldn't have asked for a more exciting and fun teamwork exercise. Thank you to everyone who offered amazing advice, photos and blog links. We incorporated so many of the details thanks to your suggestions. Our team worked hard discreetly tying in many of our firm's values and culture and while I'm afraid those details were overlooked by the judges but we couldn't have asked for a better team assignment. Everyone pitched in.
|We personalized our chargers each of them reflected our work or a firm value.|
|Our shirts were amazing and each of us had a quote from our favorite character on our backs.|
The centerpiece is one of my favorite things about the table. I spent a week hunting down colored papers that would otherwise have been thrown away in an effort to recycle. It took three of us 4 hours to hand make the paper flowers and arrangement. Each of the candles, napkins and place cards were creatively written to combine our firm's core values and that of Downton Abbey. No detail was overlooked.
