A very merry Christmas works ‘do’ in Weston Super mare!

Knightstone christmas 2

The stunning fancy dress of Poison Ivy, Christmas Tree & Avatar girl

 

Whoooa, last Friday was such a laugh – we had it all including a tasty Christmas dinner, naked bottoms, posh angels and a lovely trip to the seaside.

Christmas works parties don’t come any better than the Knightstone one in Weston Super Mare at the Winter Gardens!

What a rare feeling getting ready for a party at 12 o clock midday – other people said the same thing, it wasn’t only me – but just because it was happening during the day doesn’t mean it was any less of a raucous ‘do’ . Everyone was there from Batman and Poison Ivy to the rockabilly cow boys and girls and my absolute personal favourites, the zombie (who kept bleeding all over everyone in the booth) and the Christmas tree – all 350 of them having a right royal rave up!

Kirsty, thank you so much for booking us for your ‘do’ – now that’s what we call a ‘party’!! Merry Christmas and a happy new year, love Caz and Laurence x 🙂

Christmas comes to the seaside!

Anyone for a cracker? Haven Doniford Bay holiday park in Somerset

 

Last Saturday night was like a blast from the past!! We were booked to bring the black party photo booth to our first Christmas party of 2014 held at the Haven Doniford Bay Holiday Park. When we were growing up, you couldn’t keep us out of the amusements arcades and that was where we found ourselves last weekend – in the middle of the amusements (which was the perfect place to be!! 🙂

The event was the annual party for the holiday home owners at the park and we were expecting around 400 people visiting the booth throughout the night. And it was a busy one!

Christmas can never come too soon for me! I love it!! (Don’t love the shopping bit so much, but as soon as the tinsel and selection boxes hit the shelves, I’m all over it!

Last Christmas ‘squish-up’ at the Proud Camden

Salt Yard Group – one of the many stunning images on the night.

 

Last Sunday night was fun!  The Yellowbooth-mobile headed off down the M4 to the tourist’s fave, Camden Market in London where we were booked to bring a few LOL moments across to the good folks of the Salt Yard Group’s Christmas party. Famed for their tapas restaurants around London, they were a nice bunch of people who really owned the dance floor! I thought I’d been transported back to Saturday Night Fever – John Travolta obviously had been given the night off!

We loved the venue,  it was an unusual one! Once a 19th century horse hospital, the venue called ‘Proud Camden’ was a large space divided into more intimate settings with sofas and small stages for bands (there was a really good jazz band on when we arrived which was nice ‘building the booth’ music) – perfect for small get-togethers with friends or drinks after work. And it was very busy … and really cobbly – which makes things awkward when unloading our hefty boxes! But, thanks to the help of some really lovely people, we were able to glide through like swans!

We were booked to get the show on the road fairly early, at around 6.30pm, and as we might have expected, visitors to the booth were a little thin on the ground, but it didn’t take long (along with some gentle persuasion from Laurence & myself) before things got really going! Overall, it turned out to be a very lively session with some amazing photo
strips landing in the picture catcher.

The ‘Squish-up’ !

 

What a photogenic bunch the Salt Yarders were! They even managed a respectable ‘squish-up’ of 12 people … good work! Lives were very nearly lost in the process, but we got there in the end!!

At the end of the night….

Oh, nearly forgot to say, that the fun didn’t stop there as at the end of the night we met a traffic warden on the very verge of popping us with a ticket for parking without loading. He told us we would need to prove we were loading and without a hint of irony. There was us standing there with 2 large boxes, 3 huge panel bags and an assortment of bags. Perhaps it wasn’t all that obvious after all.  He let us off in the end which was very nice of him! They’re not all bad, are they?
