Welcoming your friends, family, and even co-workers to an event is one of the most enjoyable experiences we can think of. Typically it is a time for celebration, happiness, relaxation (sometimes), and experience. The art of the "welcome wagon" is growing to be just that, an absolute art form.
We are featuring, and frankly giving a huge high five to some of our favorite companies around making custom welcome boxes. If you aren't familiar, custom welcome/gift boxes are a beautiful way to welcome your guests to your event. For example: A wedding hosted here in Colorado, guests may expect welcome boxes with a bottle opener to represent (and help consume :)) craft beer, which Colorado is becoming more heavily known for. They may also expect to find, locally sourced beef jerky, or a travel size sunscreen to protect those cheeks from the high altitude sun. So on and so forth, you get the picture. Either way, companies are doing an exceptional job welcoming guests from around the globe. Without further adieu,
Our local Go-To: Bundles Gift Co.
Beautifully and expertly crafted, Bundles keeps it elegant, simple, fun, and valuable. They feature gifts only found in Colorado and exceptional custom calligraphy.
We just discovered this team while attending the Bliss and Bespoke retreat (blog up soon) in Charleston, South Carolina. Absolutely stunning work.
Based out of Vancouver, BC, we love By Broken Arrow for using local products, ready to display floral arrangements, and re-usable items.
Alright folks, with these suggestions you have no excuses! I love wine and chocolate, I will be checking my door step frequently!
