We believe that you, the gift giver, deserve the same amazing experience as the one receiving the gift.

Air Force Retirement Celebration Weekend


Kendra Barnes, Owner/Founder The Key Resource


When Kendra approached us to create welcome gifts for her mom’s retirement party we were pumped. When we learned that her mother was retiring with the highest possible enlisted rank in the Air Force after 30+ years of service, we couldn’t have felt more honored. It’s projects like this one that remind us what the true purpose of Marigold & Grey is.


We started with crisp white boxes to really let the red and blue in the other items pop. Next we filled the box with white cheddar popcorn sourced directly from Texas (where the party would be taking place), healthy blueberry vanilla snack bars and Voss water bottles. We finished off the goodies with custom badge cookies celebrating her mom’s retiring rank. A small welcome note was included with a sweet message and the itinerary for weekend. The boxes were closed with gorgeous blue and white striped grosgrain ribbon and navy blue Hail to the Chief gift tags.

from the client:
"I've been a fan of Marigold & Grey for years and I was just waiting on the perfect opportunity to work with them since I found out about them after my wedding. When I started planning my mom's [Air Force] retirement celebration I knew that this would be the perfect opportunity! While giving welcome gifts to retirement guests may seem a little unorthodox [but] it was the perfect way for my mom to say "Thank You" to everyone who supported her during her 33 years of military service. All of our guests LOVED the welcome boxes! They swooned over them the entire weekend. I think we've started a new retirement gift trend in the Air Force! The attention to detail and the quality were remarkable. I can't say enough about how amazing it was to work with [Marigold & Grey] on these gifts. They made the process so enjoyable! Their systems and processes were on point and they really care about their clients."
