It's worth noting that we both wore the same outfits for the parties (like the last year) because I wanted to get my money's worth out of my dress. :)
My company Christmas party was at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. It was a cool night and there was a photo booth!
(Some of my coworkers and me at the party.)
My company party is a bit less formal as far as the schedule goes and they have heavy appetizers set up buffet style. There really isn't any sort of "program" but they have a DJ and dancing as well.
M's party is more scheduled with a cocktail hour, program/awards portion, sit down dinner, entertainment and then a live band and dance floor. Every year, M's company goes all out! This year was no different...
The entertainment this year was Cirque du Soleil! It was the show Cirque Dreams and it was really awesome! I've seen another Cirque show before and this didn't disappoint! M's party was in a different city about an hour from where we live so we got a hotel room and made a mini-getaway out of it.
We both reflect on the good and bad parts of both and it would be awesome if we could combine certain parts of both parties...but we like having a bit of variety in them both.
Now that both of our company parties are over...we have family parties to attend!
