A colleague is leaving on ML for her 3rd child. We all want to celebrate her leaving and give her a good send off. We've got her a card & flowers & chocolates. Anything else we could do? We've discarded 'Going down the pub' smile

Thanks in advance

Hey, I've just gone off on ML and my team did the usual - card, baby box, wine for after etc but to send me off we had a team meeting and ordered in pizzas. Presents and pizza?! Win Win hahah! Ps it's my 2nd so I really appreciated still having a fuss made over me ha x

We went out for afternoon tea on my last day and my team bought me flowers and books. It was lovely!

I think nice food would be a good addition.

Thanks everyone. All your answers were great especially "Cake. The answer is always cake."

Afternoon tea? If you can't go out can some people bring the scones, cream & jam, someone else the finger sandwiches, someone the mini cakes etc?
