Well, what an exciting couple of weeks it’s been! We moved into a brand new, bigger office which meant one thing…we had to host the ultimate office-warming party!
From beer pong on the board room table to archery in the office, we made sure ‘FUN’ was key to our party and judging by the sore heads in morning, we definitely achieved this.
Now, hosting a party isn’t the easiest of tasks and we wanted to make sure we had everything covered and this included the decorations. Hurn & Hurn, the unique homeware store, sent us some beautiful LED lights:
We placed these in the boardroom which is where we hosted the party. We loved the little gin bottles, they helped set the atmosphere we wanted to give! The vintage Valve Style lights were also a great fit, especially with our chrome themed board room.
Hurn & Hurn also sent us an A3 cinema lightbox. We LOVE light boxes, and we already have an A4 one which we have lots of fun with so we thought we couldn’t go wrong with an A3 one. As expected, this went down a treat and the phrases changed throughout the night with all the staff trying to be funny and risqué:
Our favourite item sent by Hurn & Hurn was an amazing neon flamingo! It’s a must-have for EVERYONE and is the perfect addition to any uni bedroom or living room:
The flamingo, which we have named Fred, is still used every day in the Student Wire office and we’re all very fond of him..
A party is never complete without balloons and candles for the cake! Flamingo Gifts sent us some colourful and vibrant ones which added the perfect final touch to our boardroom:
Now, we’d sorted the decorations it was on the games! Wyevale Garden Centres sent us this amazing Premier Archery Set:
We were a little sceptical to how this would go down and if it would work inside, the last thing we wanted was to damage our brand new office. However, it went down a treat! It was really easy to put together, which is always a bonus! We had a great fun playing Archery and even managed to turn it into a drinking game…if you miss the bulls-eye, you take a shot!
We also put together the BEST quiz! This included: riddles, general knowledge and music rounds. We gifted the winner of the quiz with this amazing Pineapple Tumbler from Flamingo Gifts:
After the quiz, we played beer pong and everything got a little messy and blurry from then onwards…
