Each year the Bronner family hosts a staff Christmas party in mid-January for the Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland team. (Due to the busy-ness of the actual season for us, we celebrate the month following.) For many years, the party theme celebrated the Christmas traditions in a particular country or part of the world. So it was on January 19, 2013, when the 2012 staff gathering was a Bronner’s British Christmas!
There were Union Jack flags, plum puddings, Christmas trees, mini beef wellingtons, wassail, fish and chips, and other “scrummy” bites! Fascinators topped many a pretty head.
The Bronner family donned royal garb, and even “James Bond” dropped in to share conversation and a drink with Bronner’s president and CEO Wayne Bronner.
Photo opportunities abounded. Life-sized cardboard cutouts of the royal family and a classic red telephone box were placed decoratively throughout the hall, awaiting that adoring peck on the cheek or click of the camera.
STAFF DRAWING FOR CUTOUTS!
What did the Bronner family do with the life-sized cardboard cutouts after the party? Held a staff drawing, of course, to give each of them a permanent home! And home they all went, except for my favorite – Prince Harry! My promotions department teammate Shannon won him and decided to keep him in her office where he greets her each morning!
The red-headed prince is a favorite of mine so just for fun, I toured him around the Bronner’s grounds. Recognize some of these spots?
