Holiday Fun and plenty of laughter ~ Wine ~ Appetizers ~ Presents

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

Our annual NW Coldwell Banker Office "Girls Only Party" kicked off the holiday season and as always was full of laughs and giggles, ringing in the spirit of the holidays for all of us. Mixing and mingling with colleagues who are friends is always a good time!

The admission to entry requires a plate of appetizers, desert, salad or whatever, a bottle of wine (most important) and a $20+ wrapped gift for the gift exchange. Numbers are passed out and #1 begins selecting their pick from the festive wrapped packages set by the fireplace. Party goes can choose to take an item someone already has picked (that is when the real fun starts). The gift is frozen after 3 steals. The aim of the gift exchange is to bring something everyone wants like shimmery Christmas pillows, sexy lingerie, wine, jewelry, Christmas decorations,  so lots of stealing is going on!

I can say without reservation 2018 was another success story! Our office comes from abundance not scarity and we work as hard as we play"

Hi Peter Mohylsky 

We have a Christmas party the office sponsors that everyone goes to as well as a regional party. This party is something the girls have done for years..the guys never think of anything for all of them to do but there are far less guys which might be why.

We had our Coldwell Banker holiday potluck today but your girls only party looks like way more fun!  (Throughout the year, our girls parties that we arrange end up being called “Wine and Whine” parties!  I think we need to change that!)
