Next up in the throw-your-coworker-a-party vault: Laura’s Bon Voyage! And when your coworker’s last day of work occurs during pumpkin season you throw a PSL party! Yessss.
Traditionally, PSL stands for “Pumpkin Spice Latte,” but for this party it also stood for “Please Stay, Laura.” (Yaa??) I decided to decorate with some of the Lady of Honor’s favorite things: rose gold lovelies (letter balloons!), Rifle Paper co prints (wrapping paper as wall art!), and dinosaurs (novelty toys for the win!). We even went on a fallen branch/twig expedition around campus to collect some leafy decor. Plus pumpkins, because it’s a pumpkin spice party.
We took PSL drink orders and pitched in for snacks. It was my first time having a PSL. I went the iced, half sweetened, soy milk, no whip route. I can’t say it’s a favorite drink, but it sure makes for a great party theme!
And for snacks, Trader Joe’s had all the pumpkin spice things. All. of. them. I thought I was going overboard with all the pumpkin treats, but can you really go overboard if the theme is PSL? 😜
We had a mini activity, too. I had everyone write some well wishes for our Laurasaurus (a rare dinosaur breed endemic to the Bay Area and often found hiding in shrubbery)!
Cheers to Laura, cheers to new adventures, and cheers to themed parties!
