San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2008
Jenn Sheets & Nick Baughman had vendors already picked out for their wedding. Then they found they had been chosen randomly from more than 2,000 entries for the prize a local green wedding contest originated by Celebrations Event Planning
and San Diego Bride and Groom Magazine.
The victory left the couple with an eco-friendly wedding and reception for 100 people. For the couple, it also meant receiving Once Upon a Favor's unique dragonflies, which even received local attention from media outlets such as San Diego Fox Channel 6.
These personalized and environment friendly dragonflies were distributed to wedding guests as favors - small gifts that the bride and groom traditionally give out as a token of thanks. The tradition dates back to the 16th Century, and Once Upon A Favor specializes in these types of gifts as well as other party supplies and favors from moderately priced token gifts to more lavish options as well.
Unlike most favors, the dragonflies are a favor that lasts. Each dragonfly has seeds inside, which recipients can then plant for a gift that lasts like the memories of the event itself. It's one of the most efficient options for couples interested in a matrimony that's friendly to Mother Earth, and part of a larger movement to clean up a family event that's beautiful, but not the most earth-friendly.
Such an approach has won surprising reviews from previous clients.
"They were a hit, just like they were at the baby shower," said Christie, who has used the favors for several events. "Such an original idea that everyone can actually use."
Once Upon a Favor was established by owner Marci Krown in October 2006. The business has showcased its wares at many shows, including the Bridal Bazaar Show at Del Mar Fairgrounds.
