Take Home Gifts
Once you decide on a venue for your event, there are lots of other decisions that you will need to make. Here is a suggestion: instead of the usual goody bags, why not send guests home with something that will really provide them with a memory of your event? Photos from one of our photo booths and the always fun flip-books make great take-home souvenirs.
