What do you get if you cross an £8 budget with 180 metres of tin foil, years worth of repurposed event decorations and a brand new events team? It’s ok, it’s not a bad cracker joke; it’s the winners of the annual Royal Society of Art Christmas decorating competition.
Our Harbour & Jones Events team at RSA House were looking for ways to raise their profile and get to know colleagues around the venue. What better way to get involved than by transforming the events office at RSA House, home to enlightened thinking, into a winter wonderland?
Every day, the team came together for ‘power half-hour’, adding decorations and displays to the space. It started with a computer screen being given the gift of wrapping and snowballed from there.
RSA House has seen it’s busiest Christmas to date this year, with award-winning restaurant The Vaults hosting 50 covers at lunch throughout December and back-to-back events across the venue.
Alex Campbell, Sales & Marketing Manager was really pleased with the teams efforts ‘It’s been really great to meet everyone and join in the festive spirit of the RSA. Business is booming and we’re all rushed off our feet, so it’s nice to be able to give something back to the team – a bit of fun goes a long way.’
Other efforts from around the offices included a handmade nativity scene, festive origami and a Christmas tree made entirely from books. But our team literally whitewashed the competition to take first place. The prize? Fame and glory, of course.
