Our sister company, Welcome Bag Shoppe, has been buzzing with all kinds of fun and creative projects lately! A couple weeks ago we shared the news, here, that we would be featured in the upcoming September/October issue of Destination Weddings & Honeymoons magazine.
Customers have come to us to help them create custom gifts for events other than weddings – take a look!
Kristen of KMH Photography asked us to put together a gift that she could give her couples once they’ve booked with her! The “Our Q&A A Day” journal is made for couples, asking the same question on the same day each year for three years. This gives the couple a chance to see how their outlooks, thoughts and likes/dislikes have changed in the past year, or on the flip side, if they still believe in the same thing! Packaged with a darling banderole pencil, it’ll make you want to skip ahead and jot down more answers!
One customer loved our Hangover Kits and wanted to gift them to his friends with personal touches to each one. Instead of the usual granola bar, he asked us to add a bag of sunflower seeds in one and a strip of beef jerky in the other. What a thoughtful friend!
On the left is a project we’ve been working on for home builders, this basket is a congratulatory gift to their clients on the purchase of their new house! Equipped with the necessities for your first night at home clients will just have to add a baguette and their favorite cheeses and we’ll provide the cheese board, wine & wine glasses, olive oil and dipping spices, scented candle, and a notepad to write down all your to do’s to start turning their house into a home.
The rock candy treats on the right are on their way to becoming favors which play into the name of the venue – any guesses which venue?
This last project is one we’ve been excitedly waiting to share with you! To add to our current selection of drink kits, including the Jack & Coke kit and Bloody Mary kit, we present our Frohito kit! Perfect for a beach or lakeside wedding, just add the ice and guests will have everything they need to savor this refreshing drink – complete with cocktail umbrella! Don’t leave out the kids or the non-drinkers, this drink kit comes with the option of Perrier instead of rum, appropriately called our Fauxjito kit.
If you’re not following us on Instagram, start now for behind the scenes crafting! Also, stay tuned because we have another surprise up our sleeve!
When couples come to me with a theme for their wedding day I actually get really excited. I have been challenged with robots, travel, baseball, red solo cups and lightbulbs, but when Faye and Andy approached me with a James Bond themed wedding I had to hit up Case Keefer for his James Bond movie collection to freshen up on how I can create a wedding around sexy woman, amazing cars and martinis. I couldn’t wait!
Faye and Andy teamed up with Paper and Home for a killer wedding invitation. The main invite resembled a bullet hole and used clever verbiage like license to marry and top secret. The color scheme of champagne, black and blue was used throughout the ceremony programs, escort cards and menus as well.
Guests were greeted with a welcome bag filled with an itinerary for the weekend, water, popcorn and Faye’s favorite chocolate, M&Ms. To top it off, each guest was presented with their own Vesper Martini Kit with instructions from Bond himself, “Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon-peel. Got it?'” Welcome Bag Shoppe provided everything needed in adorable packaging, of course.
The wedding day quickly approached and Faye and Andy couldn’t wait to treat their guests to an awesome cocktail hour before their heartfelt Jewish ceremony. Guests had a chance to drop off their cards in a briefcase secured with handcuffs before finding their seats to find a mini box of M&Ms wrapped in kraft paper, stamped with the date and a top secret emblem and finished off with red striped tape and bakers twine to resemble a top secret box. WBS loves anything mini, and so did the guests! Tables were named after Faye and Andy’s favorite Bond movies like Casino Royal, Goldfinger and You Only Live Twice. Their grand entrance was to “The Name’s Bond… James Bond,” and their choreographed first dance was to “Diamonds are Forever.” It was classic! Their cake topper was to die for and the photo strips in the photo booth really topped off the theme.
I can’t thank all of Faye and Andy’s vendors enough for really embracing the theme and having a blast with it. Faye and Andy, you’re truly an inspiration. Your love and kindness for one another is sincere and heartfelt. I am honored to have been your wedding planner and I look forward to celebrating again soon. Best wishes to you both and to your darling families. Mazel Tov!
