“Please Excuse our Celebration” Thank You Gifts
event planning & design:

We absolutely love when our clients think up unique occasions and scenarios in which to give our gifts and this project was no exception. Washington-DC based event planning firm Engaging Affairs was planning a wedding in a residential neighborhood and wanted to hand out a small gift to each of the neighbors preemptively apologizing for any extra noise or traffic on the day of the event. Such a thoughtful and practical idea!
Due to the incredibly tight timeline (the event was mere days away), we knew we didn’t have time for a fully custom gift design. However, we took a look at our ready-to-ship Pre-Designed Gift Collection in our online shop and decided that our ‘Many Thanks’ gift would be the perfect fit for this occasion! This gift design features the most delicious cranberry and chocolate chip Lady Bird cookies, an artisan travel candle and a Rosebud salve tin. The gifts were closed off with beautiful satin blush ribbon and thank you gift tags. With a little treat, a splash of pampering and a great scent, it was the perfect way to say “please excuse our celebration!”
from the planner:
"Welcome Boxes aren't only for your guests attending the event! I love to use them as well as thank you or appreciation gifts. For instance, whenever I have an at home wedding, I like to send these in advance to let neighbors know of the occasion, the timing of the occasion including any vendor load in and load out information, and a contact number to avoid any issues! When all of that information is wrapped up in something so lovely as a Marigold & Grey gift, they are sure to be excited and understand any minor inconveniences of the day!"
