A few days ago, I had a chance to grab a cup of coffee with Sarah Jennings. A recent transplant to the East Alabama area (thank you to Kia who is building a new plant in West Point, Ga.), Sarah has started a business of designing and packing welcome bags for an event’s out of town guests. These bags go above and beyond just giving out the information of the event, they truly serve as a welcome to the event.
Sarah takes each event individually and custom designs each bag (or box, if you would rather). She has all types of packages where she can do a very basic box with a welcome note and intinerary to a very elaborate box/bag that follows the event theme to a T. And, they are beautiful! Go figure – Sarah is also a marketing consultant. She knows how to put together an appealing package. Wouldn’t you love the first thing that your guests receive from your wedding to be a perfectly matched welcome?
The nice thing about what she does is that a welcome box tends to be one of those things that get thought of last in the wedding planning process. When that happens and you try to do it yourself, it doesn’t come together just right. But, Sarah is able to put her creative juices to work for you to make the perfect greeting for your guests.
Beyond being the diva of boxes, Sarah is just a fun chick. I had a great time grabbing coffee with her. She was nice enough to do some sample boxes for me and here’s what I have to share with you – yeah, you only get the pictures here. But, give Sarah a call at 828-553-4331 to get the real thing.
