After seven years of success, ABC hit Scandal is coming to an end. Star Kerry Washington shared her appreciation for co-stars and crew by throwing them a huge goodbye dinner party and providing the television family with some pretty impressive parting gifts.

Washington shared photos from the star-studded night out, which took place at STK Los Angeles.

“In season 2 @jeffperryreal suggested that we, as a cast, take our beloved @scandalabc writers to dinner as a gesture of gratitude,” Washington reveals. “It became a beautiful annual tradition. Last night was our last one ever. OMG. It all begins with the words. And we will miss these words and these writers with all our hearts. Thank you for hosting us @eatSTK #STKLosAngeles It was a gorgeous night.”

US Weekly reports the leading lady was joined by show creator Shonda Rhimes and co-stars Tony Goldwyn (Fitzgerald Grant), Katie Lowes (Quinn Perkins), Bellamy Young (Mellie Grant), Darby Stanchfield (Abby Whelan), Guillermo Diaz (Huck), Scott Foley (Jake Ballard), Jeff Perry (Cyrus Beene), Joshua Malina (David Rosen), Cornelius Smith Jr. (Marcus Walker) and George Newbern (Charlie).

The Emmy nominee reportedly also provided the tight-knit crew with a week’s worth of parting gifts, according to TheJasmineBrand.

The “Scandal Survival Kit” reportedly included sneakers, expensive wine, workout classes and, surprisingly, mattresses.

“We work 16-hour days and sometimes some departments have eight-hour turnarounds, which means they’re sleeping five, six hours a night, and I just really feel like having a mattress is something you’re supposed to do for yourself but you don’t do it enough,” Washington explained. “I wanted to give that to our Scandal family.”
