Here at CKHQ we've been trying to get all things festive underway so we do apologise for missing last week's post! We hope you all had a very happy Halloween that was filled with minimal tricks and many treats! 🎃🍬☠️ We certainly embraced the Halloween festivities at CKHQ, and here is where we will be telling you what we got up to over the past couple of weeks.

On Halloween we hunted down pumpkins from our local shops and set ourselves a competition of who can create the BEST pumpkin in the office. We got ourselves into teams and set to work!

You can be the judge as to who was the winner...

Incase you missed it, it was also World Vegan Day on Friday 1st November. We celebrated in style here at CKHQ and committed to an ALL vegan lunch in the office. We were broken into various teams and instructed to create a course for the lunch. The sales team were on starters, marketing did mains and operations did dessert. 

Tomato and red onion bruschetta were what the sales team presented, pulled jackfruit burritos for main by marketing, and vegan brownies and banana bread (with vegan ice cream obvs) were presented by the operations team. 

The spread looked absolutely delicious and tasted even better!

Last week, in case you missed it from our stories (how could you!?), we were at the Spirit of Christmas show in Kensington Olympia. This Christmas Fair presents a collection of 900 independent boutique retailers and designer-makers, and we were ONE of them! We had a team there from Monday to Sunday selling all things Candy Kittens and Christmas related, whilst of course, giving free samples! We met so many fans of the brand as well as some exciting other exhibitors! It well and truly got us into the Christmas spirit! Plus a minor panic as to how organised everyone is with their Christmas shopping *cue mini heart attack*!
