After nearly 5 (!!!!!!) years in Saudi, I have come to appreciate many things about the culture. The food, the music, the traditional dress… and the attention to detail regarding parties and gatherings.
If I am being honest, I didn’t always appreciate this. My sisters-in-law used to drive me insane with how carefully and intensely they would decorate for events, even when it was just us. Now however I see what an art form it truly is.
We have parties at work from time to time. We use them to celebrate the end of the semester as well as a way to say farewell to our colleagues. Some of my colleagues work really hard to put together beautifully decorated parties, and I wanted to do a photo blog as an appreciation post to show the hard work they’ve put in.
