Ultimately, it’s what will make it possible to have 1,000 offices worldwide serving millions of hearts and homes.

For the Divisional Awards Luncheons, Awards Presentation/General Session, and evening Bloomin’ & Groovin’ Dinner/Dance, all are encouraged to dress in theme and HAM it up! BAYADA has a lot of “Hams” out there who like to get creative and dress according to the Awards Weekend theme; alternatively, “Fans” who prefer not to dress in theme, may wear cocktail or business casual.
Some attire/costume ideas for inspiration:
- Floral dresses, hats, pants, shirts, ties…

- Elegant tea party
- Hawaiian luau
- Gardening attire
- Garden Party
- Flowered Hats

Carefully remove your meal ticket from your name tag pouch and present it to the wait staff once you are seated at any meal event.
