For the last several months (really since last March) I've been working on our school's annual silent and live auction. The last few weeks (okay 6-8 weeks) it has taken over most of my life (yep, dream too). However, I have really enjoyed it. I had missed my days as a Meeting and Special Event Planner, but the game is a bit different on this side of the fence.
Thankfully, I've had a team of really great volunteers who have helped me every step of the way. Some of them are seasoned professional who have been working on this specific event for over 8 years and other are new to our school this year choosing to jump in to the deep end of the pool.
I wanted to make them a little thank you gift. Our theme this year is Fire and Ice (isn't everyone's) with a focus on Red and White. The solution I arrived at was a little jar with layers of red and white (okay, they were yellow and pink) for Cherry Lemonade Mix and a monogramed beverage tray (gotta use the vinyl cutter). I really like the way they turned out.
