As the clock struck 5pm on Friday the countdown to our Christmas party began. Should you have been brave enough to peep into the ladies loos you could have been forgiven for thinking you were viewing a rehearsal for the ‘Here Come the Girls’ Boots ad. Through a cloud of hairspray and dustings of blusher the Jellybabes got busy with the art of preening, curling and spritzing. Whilst at the same time the boys were scrubbing up well upstairs. Once the transformations were complete the Prosecco was popped and the pre-dinner drinks began. Come 6pm we were all on-route to the mystery venue on our rather swish coach whilst being serenaded with rousing hymns (don’t ask!?) reminiscent of a Sunday school away day.
As we made our way around the M25 it became clear London was not our destination (as many had predicted) and as we hit the M40 the plot thickened! We eventually alighted in Beaconsfield and entered our venue for the evening. With no sign outside we were still somewhat in the dark as to the venue for the evening. However, on arrival all jaws dropped at the fabulous and opulent surroundings of ‘Crazy Bear’ and as the champagne flowed the stresses of the day melted away our glamorous evening began in style! With champagne glasses in hand we moved through a range of decadently decorated rooms to our private dining area for the main event. The panelled walls and sparkling chandeliers set the tone for a fabulous evening of great food and fine wines, not to mention a large helping of fun and games, as is the Jellybean way!
So as we gently staggered to our waiting carriages replete from our amazing meal and a little tipsy (some more than others!) we all agreed that despite Christmas being a distant memory, for one rainy January night we had managed to truly channel the festive spirit to make our Christmas party a night to remember. As to how much anyone remembered on Saturday morning, well, that’s possibly debatable, but suffice to say a great time was had by all!
