Summer Creative

Marking a decade at Christmas.

Summer Creative is 10 years old. How time flies when you’re having fun, working hard and building a successful design agency. In celebration of Summer Creative’s 10 year anniversary, our wonderful Directors took us to Bruges for one hell of a Christmas Party!

It was an early start as we all met at The Eurostar entrance in St Pancras International… Fuelled with coffees, croissants, bacon baps, and even a cheeky beer for some, we arrived in Bruges in good time for lunch. Even the fog couldn’t hide Bruges’ quaint, quirky architecture made even prettier by Christmas trees, lights, music and the markets. Most of us joined forces and huddled outside a little restaurant under outdoor heaters – making the most of beers in crazy shaped glasses and heart warming food – absorbed in the festive atmosphere surrounding the Christmas Market only a few metres away.

A couple of hours later, we were dressed to impress in our “Bow Tie Bling” and cocktails were flowing at a stunning bar called Groot Vlaenderen. A short totter down the cobbled streets and we arrived for dinner at Zwart Huis (a bistro housed in a listed monument dating back to 1482) – it’s huge log fire and nineteen metre high anchored plate stones on top of a baseboard of Tournai limestone making it the most epic backdrop for our Christmas meal. Wine and beer flowed, and more cocktails after that… and a slightly less chirpy, but definitely happy bunch made our way home the next day.

Merry Christmas everyone.
