This month, Dufresne is celebrating its 35th anniversary and we can’t help but think about how much celebrations have changed in the past year. It seems like overnight we had to completely rethink the way we mark occasions from the safety of our bubbles.
Now that we’ve had 12 months with varying degrees of restrictions in place, we have seen the full gamut of occasions—holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, retirements, and even a few weddings. We’ve changed how we celebrate, but what hasn’t changed is our need to feel connected and to make others feel special.
There’s no question that celebrations have become smaller and more intimate, but we have to applaud the people who have found creative new ways to celebrate joyfully, taking virtual parties to a whole new level. As we approach our milestone event, we’re taking a look at some of the inspiring ideas that gave life to our celebrations over the past year. And, who knows—even when things get back to normal, we might be keeping some of these.
