Trade Show Booth Design Success!

by

Wedding Booth Vintage TypewriterWith our second Wedding MBA show now behind us, it’s time to share our trade show success!  I’m happy to report our booth came together perfectly, and we received plenty of great feedback.  But, in spite of the compliments, Vegas was not without hiccups, and unfortunately not without tragedy.

Before mentioning our triumphs, it needs to be noted that we were in Las Vegas during the deadliest mass shooting our nation has seen.  The following days were both saddening and heartwarming; watching both the news and the outpouring of love in Vegas.  The Knot and Wedding Wire, typically competitors, merged their two show events into one large party.  This gave the attendees that magical ‘one big happy family’ feeling.  Thank you to the Knot and Wedding Wire for merging the parties so quickly and completely and allowing us all to relax in a secure and fun environment.  I think all of Vegas needed a drink that night… but when doesn’t all of Vegas need a drink?

Our booth came together seamlessly, thanks to lots of planning.  We featured a gold, blush and cream color palette. Dripping in flowers, our booth was a stark contrast from last years more masculine colors and feel.  We created an inviting space that would be attractive and make our booth impossible to resist.  Now THAT’S trade show success!Wedding MBA booth 6130

In addition to welcoming colors, we boasted favors and giveaways to lure in the most resistant of show-goers.  Our favor options included: a hangover kit, candy and popcorn.  The popular hangover kit included an Emergen-C, Mint Lifesaver and Advil… all the essentials for surviving even the worst hangover.  The label says it all: Hangover Survival Kit; YOU’RE WELCOME.  Believe me, we received many thanks for giving this out the morning after the Knot and Wedding Wire party!  These make a great addition to any Wedding Welcome bag, or bachelor/bachelorette party favor.  Purchase the fun label here, the kraft bags here.  Finally, but the goodies inside from Amazon here: Advil, Lifesaver, Emergen-C.

Hangover Kit with Custom LabelsOther favors included a sweet Smartie and savory bag of microwave popcorn.  The popcorn was a simple microwave bag, purchased from the ever-trusty Costco, but you could use any brand.  We used the same Kraft bags that were utilized in our hangover kit to create an adorable brown paper package.  Then, all we had to do was tie it up with string!

Popcorn Party Favor with Custom Label

You can purchase Smarties in bulk from your local Party City.  Then, place it in this 3″ x 4″ self-sealing cellophane bag .  Next, add a small piece of chipboard and the perfect label, which can be purchased here, and you’ve got one SMART favor on your hands!Smartie Candy Favor with Custom Label

Our giveaways were our piece de resistance featuring 4 bottles of delicious and coveted BOOZE!  (Buy this CHEERS label here)  Here is one of our happy winners: a new friend from JC Room Blocks – a fantastic vendor that every bride needs!  If you are having a destination wedding, room blocks are par for the course, so give them a call!  You’ll be happy you did!

That’s officially a wrap on our trade show success folks!  See you next year at WED MBA 2018!

Graduation Party Themes For Your Recent Grad

by

Graduation is an important milestone in anyone’s life. Whether you’re graduating from high school or completing your college degree and entering the workforce for the first time, celebrating is a must. Scroll through these ideas to throw the perfect graduation party that the scholars will be reminiscing about at the 10 and 20 year reunion!

All the Sweets

Who doesn’t love desserts? Ditch the boring chocolate chip cookies and turn your sweets table into goodies that fit into your party theme. Borrow some or all of these grad party dessert ideas:

Class Rings

Who can forget the classic Ring Pop candies? Your colleagues will be feeling ALL the feels sporting a tasty “class ring” that’s fun and totally Instagram-worthy.

Diploma Cookies

Transform Pirouette wafers into adorable diploma cookies by simply adding a ribbon. These would be perfect for dipping in coffee, tea, or just snacking on them plain!

So Long Suckers

Another retro candy from your childhood: Tootsie pops. If you and your classmates are parting ways after graduating, these “so long suckers” will drop the hint that you’re moving away (and not looking back!).

Graduation Caps

These graduation cap desserts are a cinch. All you need is Rolo’s, a hot glue gun, construction paper, and ribbon.

To make your party even more memorable, customize your desserts with personalized labels! Whether you choose to mark your candies with your graduating year or the name of your school, your guests will love the added personal touch.

Yearbook Party

Some schools still do the “most likely” awards in their yearbooks, but if your class didn’t get to partake, why not recreate a yearbook party theme? Place props around the house or venue and set up photo booths with polaroid cameras. Create signs for:

  • Most likely to become famous
  • Most likely to succeed
  • Most likely to win The Voice
  • Most likely to win an Oscar
  • Most athletic
  • Most likely to invent something
  • And more!

Good Luck

Graduating can be an exciting time but also a scary one. You and your classmates may be looking for some good luck wishes whether it’s for getting into their preferred college or landing their dream job. Host a “good luck” party with decor items that instill feelings of hope like rainbows, a pot of gold, horseshoes, shamrocks, and Lucky Charms cereal!

Movie Night

Looking for a low key graduation party theme? Gather your best classmates and host a movie and popcorn night. Hand out custom popcorn bags and watch graduation/prom-focused movies like The Graduate, Superbad, and Dazed and Confused.

Then & Now

Have your classmates changed their look since you first met? Host a then & now party and have everyone wear an outfit they would have worn 10 years ago. Gather up as many childhood pics of your friends and play guessing games to see who can be identified!

Sail Away!

Pull up the anchor and say “bon voyage!” to your colleagues with a sail away party. Theme your decor with the typical sailing items:

  • Anchors
  • Sailboats
  • Lifesavers (real and edible!)
  • Starfish
  • A photo booth complete with:
    • Pirate eye patches
    • Sailor hats`
    • Fake telescopes

Wine & Cheese

Maybe your classmates are a little more lowkey. Buy a variety of wines and put custom labels on them so no one knows the brand. Have your guests try and guess which types of wines they’re tasting. And don’t forget to pair them with cheese!

Share Your “Keys to Success”

Celebrate with your fellow classmates and their accomplishments by encouraging them to share their secrets to success. Set up a table with a bulletin board, keys, and tags for your guests to write down their tips. Carry the theme over to the rest of your decor with custom “keys to success” bottles and invitations.

We’ll help you add that personal touch to your party that will send off your colleagues feeling grateful for creating such special relationships!

A Guide to Nailing Your Wedding Wine Label Design

Screen Shot 2016-09-06 at 1.46.19 PM

Choosing the right gifts for your wedding guests is essential for creating lasting memories of your special day. A wedding wine is an ideal way to remind your family and friends years later of the fantastic time they had at your wedding! A generic bottle with its original label is a nice gesture — but a personalized bottle with a custom label makes the gift a thoughtful, special, and meaningful memento.

Custom wine bottles are not just unique and creative gifts; they are cost-effective, too. You’ll save money by ordering just the wine labels for your bottles than specially labeled bottles direct from a winery. It is significantly less expensive to ship wine labels, too, than it is to purchase and ship custom labeled wine bottles. Buy the bottles separately at a local retailer and label yourself for more control, creativity, and savings.

So, where do you even start when choosing and designing your wedding wine label? We’re here to help!
