My Company Throws A Pretty Darn Cool Holiday Party

Last night was our company's holiday party, at the Jonas Jensen Fremont Studios (we've outgrown the Fairmont Olympic Hotel downtown, where our parties had been for years). Working for an architecture and design firm makes for creative parties ...

The front of the building had the name of our firm projected in huge letters on the wall (which helped us find it, since it was kind of an out of the way place).


As we were walking up, we noticed that it was snowing, even though it was 45 degrees out - there was a snow machine on the roof so that it was snowing just in front of our party. (No pictures of that, so you'll just have to use your imagination).


Scott got creative taking a picture of the blue neon above the entrance ...




... I even showered and shaved for the occasion ...







... and so did Scott (thankfully he didn't wear his original outfit) ...





... Keeping in a colorful Holiday theme, the main room where we had dinner was bathed in red light, with big mirrors hanging from the ceiling that looked like ornaments ...





... and the room with the dance floor was in green lights (the best thing about company parties is seeing who gets drunk, and who dances - and how!) ...

... and what's a Christmas party without an appearance by the Three Wise Men (our friend Chris, me and Scott)



And that's the one night a year I get to wear a suit.

Oooooh, Matt and Scott look sooo handsome! Awe I liked Scott's first outfit, I can't see why you would not let him wear it?

I liked the pretty poinsettia headdress. Scott has to wear that out at least once this season!

Looks like you guys had a great time!
My company's holiday party is in January. I'm sure it won't be as much fun as yours.

Good times, boys! Looks like a nice way to spend the holiday weekend. And, a snow machine? Wild! Skip the shower and shave next time....it's so highly overrated....and I do love me a little scruff on a hot man.
