We thought our readers might like a peek at something a little different that we did last week - a Client Entertainment "Mini Workshop" over at the stunning Radisson Blu Hotel.Â It was an really fun event, with a wonderfully festive atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone and we were delighted at their enthusiasm for the tasks too. We had been challenged with coming up with a Christmas-themed craft activity.Â The catch? It had to be completed in under 20 minutes, and we had to presume no previous experience of knitting or crochet.Â It took a few trials, and we "cheated" a small bit with the advance preparation of materials, but our winner was these little woolly hat decorations.Â Aren't they the sweetest? We used Rico Melange Glitz yarn in a range of seasonal shades - the dash of glittery fibre really added that festive flair.Â We then hot-glued on some sparkling embellishments and strung a little jingle bell on to each hanging loop as a fun finishing touch.Â All told there were at least 40 of these made (some people came back to make a second, or even third) and we love the idea of these little decorations being spread among the trees of Dublin and beyond! Thank you to everyone who came along and particularly to the lovely ladies at the Radisson Blu for planning such a wonderful event and for making us feel so welcome. Are you planning a corporate event or staff entertainment in 2017? We'd be delighted to work with you! Contact Lisa today for a proposal and quotation.
