WCI’s Pumpkin Decoration Contest 2017!

October 26th, 2017

Halloween is still a few days away, but we’re can’t wait for the fright festivities to get started. That’s why we decided to hold our office pumpkin decoration contest last Friday the 13th. No coincidence there! Our awesome Operations Team had its very first pumpkin carving contest – with results that ranged from ghastly to genuinely adorable:

WCI Pumpkin Decoration Contest

Creativity really runs in the WCI family. We totally enjoyed the way the participants transformed their pumpkins into unique artworks. The glittery pink “disco ball” pumpkin was definitely a show-stopper, don’t you think? And the pretty white, spring-themed one was also very creative. But of course, even when it’s Halloween, WCI staff won’t be WCI staff if they can’t incorporate any wine theme into their work.

So you can see from the snapshots that there’s actually a wine barrel pumpkin and a witch who kind of overdosed on her Halloween wine. The pumpkin witch was the brainchild of Todd WCI’s IT Manager, Todd! Who says his talents lie only with the digital kind? Nonetheless, the big winner of our carving and decorating competition is the awesome Cookie Monster pumpkin. Check out how realistic it looks! The way Cookie Monster’s mouth was carved really deserves some special attention. And there’s no skimping on the props either – see that plate of cookies? That’s definitely Cookie Monster all the way!

It was a very fun contest and expect that those who didn’t bring home the bacon (or wine!) this year will be back for revenge next year. We can’t wait to see what concepts the team will be bringing to the table. After all, “innovation” is everyone’s middle name here at WCI. Have a happy Halloween, everyone! ^_^
