Halloween has fully descended upon Hot Off The Press! Wednesday, Hot Off The Press employees submitted their entries for our annual Pumpkin Carving Contest!!! We had ten entries this year, and a lot of very non-traditional looks! As usual, our prepresser Scott (aka The Fun Dude) coordinated the event and acted as MC, and pumpkins were graciously provided by the Jarveys! Scott would tell you that this was actually a Punkin Carving Contest, but my editor’s brain won’t let me accept this.
Hot Off The Press employees gathered in the lobby Thursday morning to share some candy and more importantly, find out who won!
Out of some really wonderful pumpkin creations, four winners emerged. First place went to Gail, and her awesome pumpkin clearly inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven.
Second place was awarded to a very cute kitty pumpkin, created by Cristina in Marketing! Nice use of Hot Off The Press’ Rhapsody Paper Pack, by the way! (Sorry, couldn’t help myself!)
Third place went to Mike Jarvey for a fun and surprising disco pumpkin! Thanks, Mike—the whole office will be “Staying Alive” for the rest of the week (watch the video to see what I mean!)
And finally, our fourth place winner was Bethany, our Personal Shopper Administrator, with her tasteful and elegant Ron Burgundy pumpkin! They really make a lovely couple, don’t they?!
So there you have it! Congratulations to all of our winners who got their choice of coffee or ice cream gift cards, and thanks to everyone who participated. Thank you also to the Jarveys, and Scott, for making this event happen each year, no matter how busy we all are! These last few days were filled with even more creativity and excitement than normal, and I’m already looking forward to next year (and plotting how I can win!) I hope you all have a very fun, very safe and slightly spooky Halloween!!!
