Planning a party for Cinco de Mayo? What a better place to get your party supplies! No matter what type of party you’re planning, we got the goods for you! Wine glasses, margarita glasses, plates, servers…we got it all, and probably stuff you didn’t think you needed.
I’m not a “big” party planner, meaning I like small, intimate affairs, but summer parties (yes, early May is considered summer in South Florida) tend to get bigger, because we’ve got the pool, and the sun, and outdoor grills going, so Cinco de Mayo is usually the first big party of the year for us.
This Cinco will be no different. If I could invite you all, I would, but I can show you what I’ll be using at the party and it’ll be just like you were there!
Today, ReStockIt turns 9, and in true ReStockIt fashion, we lived it up! We celebrated with a masquerade theme of “Dress to the Nines” and had food catered by Carraba’s. MMMMMmmmm, good! We had a fun and fabulous “Guess Who” game with baby pictures of the staff (I won!) and a great costume contest (I came in 2nd!). Food, fun, and fabulousness, that’s the ReStockIt way! Enjoy!
It’s party time! I’ve always looked upon New Years as not only the dawning of a new calendar year, but as a time to let loose after the stressful holiday season. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, everyone is run ragged and some of us are hitting our heads against a wall now that the credit card bills are starting to roll in.
New Years is the perfect time to dance, have fun, play games, and count down to the beginning of a new year full of promise. And what better way to do that than to throw a party and invite friends to join you? All it takes is some decorations, plastic champagne flutes, plastic cups, plates, and food and drinks!
We play raffle-type games at some of our parties, where you can give away silly things like kisses at midnight, or babysitting services just to keep things lively. Kids chase balloons around, and adults that aren’t dancing play cards or gather to talk. It’s chaotic and noisy, but so much darn fun! It’s a warming feeling to be surrounded by those you love when the new year begins.
If you don’t have a party planned, or a party to go to, there is still time! Order some trays from the deli, pick up the necessary supplies, a little champagne or sparkling grape juice, some drink umbrellas to add a festive flair, and send out the invites! Bring in the new year with good cheer, loud music, friends, family, and food. And don’t forget your midnight kiss ;-)
We are a fun office. I mean that sincerely. This has got to be one of the most fun places I’ve ever worked for. We laugh, and go out, and have parties, and celebrate milestones together. We take care of our own.
Once a month, we gather together and celebrate anniversaries and birthdays. We have food (mostly healthy.Mostly.) and drink (not that kind of drink) and we crack jokes and embarrass the birthday person, all in good fun. We talk football, movies, TV shows, basketballs, college anything, kids, houses…whatever! We play games and laugh at each other. And we enjoy it. We enjoy being with each other.
Some department heads take their individual employees out to lunch for their birthday, and our Customer Service department gets together outside of work every other month or so for a night out. We have holiday parties and gatherings, give atta-boys at our weekly meetings, and generally foster a sense of camaraderie.
When one of us gets sick, we all team together to take care of their duties until they get back. If one of us ends up in the hospital, we visit and send cards and flowers. We make sure they’re taken care of because when one of us is down, it affects us all.
It helps to love where you work. It’s awesome to have a company that is more family than employer and it’s fantastic to have co-workers whom you honestly like! How can you make your office more like family? What can you do to make your work space lively?
