Holiday Fun – Employee Ugly Sweater Contest

22 12 2016

We had some holiday fun at both stores this week with an Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest!  It really helped to get the holiday spirit flowing!

At Port Chester we saw lots of great sweaters, but we had to shout out to Kat who made her own abstract art piece out of her sweater! Also Gary won the official title of “Ugliest Ugly Sweater” for this little beauty of Christmas festiveness:

Heather won the “Funniest Ugly Sweater” award with her awesome fireplace ensemble! Complete with her phone playing a crackling fire video. Also, bonus points for including a frame!

Carla, Dottie and Sarah are rocking these classic ugly sweaters. We especially love the pompom snowmen decorating the tree!

This lovely tinsel masterpiece won Holly the award for “Most Creative” also it’s very appropriate to feature a wreath as Holly is Port Chester’s Floral Department Manager!

Surprise tinsel wreath!

Luis won the big award for Best Ugly Sweater! Also we think John’s Festivus sweater deserves an honorable mention.
