Dear Miss Mary,

We were planning to host a department event to celebrate last quarter’s achievement, but with the risk of COVID, we’re having to postpone. I’m so disappointed that we can’t do something special for them.

Dear Miss Lisa,

Don’t fret just yet… just because you can’t celebrate as planned, doesn’t mean that celebrations are over. We just have to get creative with this one.

I’ve heard it’s popular to host a team “happy hour” (on Zoom or Facebook Groups or whatever platform you have available). Why not schedule one towards the end of your day and toast each other virtually from the safety of your homes?

To make this a little more special, why not do a surprise gift-bag drop off?  It will take a little time to shop, kit, and deliver, but the payoff will be a surprised and delighted team. If you’re able, go big with a kit of Miss Mary’s Mix, a bottle of spirits, a lime, a snack, and maybe something silly and fun, like a party hat or novelty glasses? You can add some company flair to the basket or gift bag with a bow, logo, t-shirt, etc. (or not). *wink*

If your team is remote – let Miss Mary’s help out. We can deliver a gift-package of mixes (any two you like). We’ll even throw in our favorite drink card with inspiring recipes for the mixes you choose. You can order these on our site,

Try not to let these limits overshadow your accomplishments, this one seems fixable, darlin.


Miss Mary
