So, you've forgotten to plan your office Christmas party...
Oh no. We warned you months ago! We warned you implicitly about this. We said that if you’re going to volunteer to prepare the office Christmas party, then you have to organize it early! Otherwise, you’re going to be stressed, well more than usual, and you run the risk of letting your team down on what should be one of the most enjoyable, if somewhat ludicrous, nights of the year. So, let me guess. You’ve left things down to the last minute, haven’t you? We thought this might happen… No matter how hard our early reminder elves work these kinds of disasters are impossible to avoid. Luckily, we’ve got a few options that are going to save your bacon.
How long do you have?This is a fundamental question. If this is the day of your office Christmas party, then we can do our best, but you are in seriously bad shape. The first thing you need to do is a sprint. Yes, sprint. To your nearest Pines and Needles pop up and let them know what's gone wrong and where and when you’re going to need your tree. They’re going to think it over, and you’re going to hand over a considerable tip and say “make sure the guy who writes the blogs gets this,” remember that part is CRUCIAL. Then they’re going to do whatever they can to make this right.
LocationWhere is your Christmas party? If it’s in your office and you’re near a pop-up, you are a lot more likely to get your tree in time. We will do our best, and 90% of the time we’ll be able to help you, but if you arrive 5 minutes before you need the tree and the delivery address is Land's End we are going to struggle!
