Last year, the team at Conner Catering in Philadelphia, PA reached out to us to improve their gifting strategy. They wanted a sleek, branded gift for their clients to receive upon booking their services. At the time, they were in the middle of a comprehensive re-brand, so showcasing their new logo on the gifts was important. They wanted a fun, celebratory gift to congratulate their clients on booking their venue and catering company. As Taylor, the Director of Weddings and Special Events at Conner Catering said, "something small but something that will put a smile on [their] clients' faces."
With that in mind, and with brand identity guidelines from their designer, we got to work on a gift design. With guidance from Taylor, our corporate gifting team created 4 gift designs with estimates for review. Taylor and her team chose their favorite, made some small changes, and chose how they wanted to incorporate their branding into each gift.
The final gift suite was simple and elegant. It included our letterpress his and her vow books (or his and his/hers and hers for same-sex couples), a set of gold minimalist pens, custom branded Champagne Bubbles candies from Sugarfina, and branded packaging including a custom foil-stamped greeting card/envelope and letterpress belly band to wrap the box.
Beautiful label options from Sugarfina for the custom candy cubes.
Photos sent from our team to Taylor to keep her updated with each custom product arrival.
After the final design was approved, we moved forward sourcing their custom products - frequently checking-in with Taylor for her guidance and approval on the various custom designs. We sent quick photos as products arrived (see above) and reached out with any questions that we needed clarification on. Once we had all the custom products in our warehouse, we put together samples of the final gifting suite and sent the photos over to Taylor to place her first order. She chose to stagger her shipments over the course of the year, so we were happy to store her products at no additional charge until she's ready to send each gift.
Once the design process is complete, our ordering process for custom gifts is simple: when a client is ready to ship a gift, they just send over the recipients' name(s) and address(es), and we'll reply back with an invoice for the remaining cost. We've even kept Taylor updated through a shared Google Sheet tracking all shipped gifts and their respective tracking information, so she can rest assured that each package has arrived safely to its recipient.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Taylor and the Conner Catering team. We love how everything turned out and we're jealous of the couples that receive these sweet gifts! Taylor kindly let us know that they have been well-received:
"We could not be happier with our experience working with Foxblossom. We were looking for a small, but personal way to say "Thank You" to our clients after booking our services and Foxblossom created the perfect gift. Foxblossom was wonderful to work with through the entire design process and captured our brand perfectly in every detail of the final product. The positive feedback we have been receiving from our clients about their gifts has only confirmed what a great decision it was partnering with Foxblossom on this project!"

While our heart and humble beginnings will always be in the wedding industry, we're thrilled to now include corporate and client gift offerings in our gifting services. We love to share what we're working on behind-the-scenes here, so each month we'll be featuring a gifting suite that exemplifies what we're all about: beautiful, custom, personalized gifts for all occasions.
This month, we're excited to showcase these luxurious "thank you" boxes we created for Dallas-based event planner LARA BETH. Lara and her team create, design and produce world class events around the globe. Earlier this summer, they reached out to us looking for a luxe branded gifting suite to say thanks to partners that contributed to the success of a recent celebrity charity event. With the help of our Custom Gift Box Builder, they approached us with some specific products they wanted to include, but wanted a bit of guidance rounding out the final design.
After some back-and-forth about quantities and branding preferences, and with product guidelines from the LARA BETH team, we decided to stick with a basic black and metallic color way to play off the minimal, modern feel of their brand.
It's imperative that we get the look and feel of a gift set just right when sending boxes directly to our customers' clientele. To ensure we have everything packed perfectly for each client, we create detailed mockups and sample images for review throughout the process. Working one-on-one with our customers in this way allows us to add and alter elements as needed to create a flawless final product.
After a few mockups and revisions, the LARA BETH team settled on a final box design that showcased some of our favorite brands. Each box included a duo of delicious dark chocolate bars from Compartés, a box of milk chocolate toffee tied with a black bow from B. Toffee, Sugarfina champagne bubble candies, a set of luxury playing cards from Theory 11 and a half bottle of champagne topped with a gold champagne puller. We were able to source amazing Veuve Clicquot Brut for their boxes, which took each gift up a notch for an extra special thank you.
Each limited edition matte black keepsake box was hand packed by our team in Pittsburgh, PA, with beautiful branded elements: black satin bows with custom LARA BETH tags, and LARA BETH greeting cards/envelopes with a handwritten message.
We love with how these gifts came together, and the folks at LARA BETH reported back that the recipients were over-the-moon to receive such special treats:
It was such a pleasure working with Foxblossom! They were always quick to respond to my emails and any idea that I had for the custom curated gift boxes they went above and beyond. The gift boxes turned out INCREDIBLE! Such a special way to thank the people for all of their hard work. - Anna Grace Pruitt, LARA BETH
