Massillon ASA Softball Quarter Auction – September 19th, 2015

I wanted to share some pictures of the display table and gift baskets that I made for the Massillon ASA Softball Quarter Auction, which was held last Saturday, September 19th.  This was the first Quarter Auction that we have participated in.  It was a lot of fun, and we helped to raise a lot of money for the girls’ softball program.   I provided two gift baskets, one was Spaghetti Night, with several kinds of pasta and sauces, and the other was Date Night, with games, movies, snacks and drinks to share.  

The table was laid out with some decor from a recent wedding, some of the fun props that we can provide for photo areas at events, a sampling of the candy buffet items we offer, a couple of place settings, our literature, and gift certificates that were available for sale.  We are looking forward to making connections with many of the people that stopped by our table and chatted with us and picked up our cards and brochures.

We love to participate in shows like this, and to make gift baskets, for many occasions.  Please feel free to contact us about your next event!  Enjoy!

Christi and Chris’s Edisto Beach, SC Wedding – June 1st, 2015

Christi and Chris were referred to us by a mutual friend.  When we met, I learned that they were a sweet, and very busy professional couple.  They wanted to get married in their favorite vacation spot, Edisto Beach, South Carolina.  They wanted to know if I had planned any destination weddings before, and would I be willing to travel to their chosen location.  I answered “of course!” to both questions.  We began planning their wedding from there.

We chose a seaside theme, with shells, and a color combination of turquoise blue, black, silver and white.  We had a lot of customized details, including the gift bags for the guests, and the table settings for the wedding dinner.  The couple had a sand blending ceremony, and the local ice cream truck even stopped at the house during the reception!  It was a beautiful day, full of love, family and friends.  It was a pleasure to work with Christi and Chris!
