Sixthriver Architects is a laid back fun loving group and this year our firm decided to have an ugly Christmas sweater themed holiday party. To sweeten the pot, we included a vintage white elephant gift exchange.
Being an architectural and interior design firm our employees let their creative minds go to work on this challenge. Everything from argyle to over the top sparkles, bells, and even lop sided antlers filled the room.
Anthony’s sweater reflecting gold embroidery, stockings, pearls and bells was the ultimate ugly Christmas apparel during the annual Sixthriver Architects holiday party.
Kirk Kaszynski rocked the 80′s traditional Christmas sweater which had a very striking resemblance to Chevy Chase’s Christmas sweater in National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, paired with his wife who took us back to our first grade elementary teachers with the colorful Christmas patch vest.
The Hagler family took the traditional route with matching argyle sweaters. I believe this is a perfect Christmas card moment.
More Christmas sweaters that took us back and brought holiday cheer to this year’s Sixthriver Architects holiday party.
The creativity didn’t stop with the tacky sweaters! From a porcelain egg to a vintage coffee mug, Sixthriver Architects employees put a lot of thought into their vintage white elephant gifts. During the exchange gifts were being stolen left and right. Just when you thought you had what you wanted…it was gone in a flash by one of your fellow coworkers.
The Holly Hobbie lunch box was a big hit and was stolen a couple of times but eventually made a home with Holly Wilcox who collects Holly Hobbie.
The Frank Loyd Wright-Book of Drawings was a huge hit among the architects and designers, but eventually made a home with Nina Wilson who joined our team this past year as an intern architect.
Gifted to Kirk Kaszynski was an assortment of old records including Kenny Rogers, The Oak Ridge Boys, John Denver, and many more.
Gifted to Bethany Weigl was a hand-crafted rose Christmas ornament that was made by Chris Dolce’s grandmother out of an old metal can top.
