Food Parade At PB!

cover

Be it Christmas parties or National days, we celebrate everything with pomp at PB. So, taking inspiration from the Republic Day Parade we did a food parade of sorts, a day prior to 26th January here at our PB office. Each team member got a special cuisine from her/his state of origin and introduced it with a hand-written note. There were Handvas from Gujrat, Gujias from Uttar Pradesh, Misal Pav from Maharashtra, Dahi Bhalla from Delhi, Cake from Goa et al. Cuisines across India were at display and our workstations quickly transformed in to buffet tables 😀

And while we celebrated cultural diversity, what we did more was Eat, Eat and EAT at this Food Parade 🙂 Here’s looking at the delectable spread.

Portrait Making With PB

We are definitely not polished Picasso’s and that’s pretty evident from the above image. However, we did try a hand at re-creating the PB faces and must we say, we failed miserably 😂 Nonetheless, we did have a good laugh!

The activity started with us writing our names on individual papers and circulating it around. Now, whoever got the sheet had to draw one feature of the person whose name was written on the sheet and circulate it again for the next part to be drawn. This continued until the entire face was ready. To top it all, we asked everyone to add accessories.

Want to see fun results? Here they are😁

Hey, we are not saying, but you now know what activity to play on your next get-together 😊

 

PB Christmas

jingle_edited

Like we said, celebrations at the PB office started early and as Christmas neared, we sang carols and wore Santa caps all day long. The Christmas cheer had already gotten the better of us making us certified Christmas addicts.

That being said, we installed the tree and brightened it with tinsel and fairy lights.

 

Moreover, we surrounded it with all the gifts for Secret Santa which was followed by unwrapping of the gifts, cake cutting and a delicious snack party 🙂

We Are 4 :D

At Pipa Bella, the celebrations are rife since the past week. Not only because Christmas and New Year’s Eve are quickly approaching but because it was our 4th birthday 🙂 We commemorated it by raising a toast to all our bauble patrons and offered a 20% site wide discount. We really can’t thank you enough for supporting us in this beautiful journey.

Psst there was cake and confetti too.

 

Look at our happy faces 😀

 

And the cake came in super pretty packaging!

 

A closer view of our cake.

 

All the P’s and B’s came together to cut the cake that we finally gorged on 😀
