Associates of Crate and Barrel, CB2, and Land of Nod celebrated the holiday season in their very own “Bavarian Biergarten” reminiscent of a cozy and festive European winter evening. VenueOne NorthShore, former home of the Chicago Bulls training facility, was transformed by EventCreative into our vision of a cozy village at the base of the Alps, complete with 20-feet tall live pine trees adorned with classic bulb lights, elevated communal tables with contemporary stools and images of the mountains projected on the walls.  Blue Plate offered pretzels hanging from wooden carts, gruyere fondue, a Chef-run spaetzle station, and other German-inspired fare. We capped off the evening in our rendition of an “Apres (After) Ski” Chalet as associates warmed up under faux fur throws with s’mores and mugs of hot chocolate.
