We are all about celebrating our team and showing them how much they mean to us, but our Christmas party is the one time of year that we like to go all out to let them know that they rock our world. We are so blessed to be surrounded by 51 passionate women who work their butts off each and every day. I still remember the first time I called them our angels. It was at our first Christmas Party with only 12 team members – I tried to explain how much we appreciated that they had come into our lives and were helping us to bring all our ideas and dreams to life while still allowing us to spend more time with our kids… I told them they were our angels! And they still are.
So this year, our events Angel Lulu put together a two day Spell retreat at Flash Camp which was just perfect… last year’s Christmas party was beautiful and a total party, but when the night was over we didn’t want to leave – so this time we wanted to slow it all down and give everyone the chance really connect and unwind together.
We started with a beautiful cocktails and dinner by Harvest Newrybar and our yearly Spell Award Ceremony under the stars at our beautiful table setting thanks to Event Shed, The Grove and Poppy and Fern Flowers.. followed by a LOT of fun and dancing then to blissful sleep in our comfy Flash Camp Tents.
Saturday morning began with yoga with Tahl from Creature Yoga – a beautiful way for us to refresh from the evening before and clear our minds before another beautiful day! We gifted our team their own Reid Bicycle so they could ride to work (reducing emissions and staying fit – double bonus!)
In the afternoon, we were really lucky to have two of the Lululemon Australia/NZ team host a goal setting workshop with some of our team. We looked at our personal core values, developed a 10 year vision and thought about where we wanted to be by this time next year. It was very inspiring and touching to share with our team!
Night two was a little more chill than our first evening of celebrations, with the BEST woodfire pizza we’ve ever tasted and spritzers made by the Harvest team. We all snuggled up in our custom Spell loungewear and watched Sex and The City in our DIY outdoor cinema under the stars! It was an actual dream come true! People retreated to bed a little earlier, and we woke up to the most nourishing brekky by We Are Combi, not wanting to ever leave the bliss that was our Christmas party!
Keep your eyes peeled our beautiful community, there may be an opportunity to get amongst it in the near future.
