Starting your autumn festivals off right can take a lot of work, but with the proper planning, ribbons can make it easier. From festive colors and messages to how you use these wonderful tools, we guarantee that ribbons will make your festival better.

Autumn Festivals

Ribbon Rolls for Autumn Festivals

Ribbon rolls are one of the best tools you can have for your Autumn festivals.

Choosing the right color is the easiest part! Whether it’s brown, orange or yellow (or any other color your event desires), we have the colors to get you going on the right path. Add messages that support different booths at your festival or add messages that go with packaging for goodie bags that you hand out to festival goers.

Ribbon rolls are also perfect for decorating! Give them to your vendors, volunteers and staff to decorate their spaces and make your event more festive. These ribbons will truly go the distance for your every need during your Autumn festivals.

PRO TIP: Create a custom photo booth backdrop with lengths of ribbon rolls tied into a banner that feature the date and theme of your festival.

Badge Ribbons for Autumn Festivals

Badge ribbons with messaging for your Autumn Festivals.

Invite festival goers to participate in your event by providing them with colorful badge ribbons with messages about what is happening during the festival. From costume contests to making sure that your volunteers are highly visible, badge ribbons are one of the best tools that you can use during your Autumn festival. Even match your colors to your booths or other vendor spaces!

One of the best badge ribbons is our full color version. These ribbons make it so that you can use bright colors as well as a bleed. This means that you can add nearly any messaging and graphics that you need to make your event special. Choose either vertical or horizontal ribbons to best fit your ribbon needs.

PRO TIP: Add badge ribbons to badge holders or name tags to help identify your staff and other volunteers at your event.

Custom Top Ribbons for Autumn Festivals

Personalized Ribbons for any Event

No matter how you choose to use any of these custom ribbons, remember to think outside of the box! Ribbon rolls don’t just have to be tied around a centerpiece to be useful. Badge ribbons don’t just have to be added to name tags and used for identification. Custom top ribbons aren’t just for awards. We’re curious to see how your outside of the box thinking goes. So, comment below and let us know how you used your ribbons!

Acknowledge Success Using Prize Ribbons

From rosette ribbons to badge ribbons, we have just what you need to help recognize colleagues, family and friends in their success. When you recognize and acknowledge success in anyone, it has incredible outcomes, especially when you use personalized ribbons.

Acknowledge Success and Achievements

Even in a fun work environment, employees want to feel appreciated for their hard work. Thank each team member for their contribution by customizing badge ribbons that highlight their achievements. From perfect attendance to closing a big sale, recognizing these accomplishments increases company loyalty. It also encourages team members to congratulate each other on their accomplishments. By creating a work culture where everyone feels valued, your employees will love coming to work. You will also attract new talent as word of your positive company culture spreads.

Custom Ribbons

Custom rosette ribbon with a message of outstanding service is a great way to acknowledge success.

Using custom rosette ribbons to acknowledge success will help anyone feel special. Employees, and really anyone, will know how much you care when you put thought into a prize ribbon just for them. And, you can customize these ribbons to say just about anything!

Start by picking how detailed you want the ribbon to be by choosing streamer count and length and how big you want the rosette part. Then you can work out which colors you want for your ribbon. Once you have chosen these styles, add any text and graphics or icons you need for these fun and fabulous ribbons.

Stock Ribbons

Stock award ribbons are a great way to acknowledge success.

While these prize ribbons are pre-designed, they do not take away from any distinguished honors or successes. So, save some time and get a stock ribbon ordered to help you acknowledge success around your office or team today.

Choose from a variety (rosette and flat) of ribbons to give out the recognition someone deserves for a job well done. From simple stock rosettes that simply say 1st Place to flat prize ribbons with bold colors and fantastic messages, all of these ribbons are just as glorious as custom ones.

Recognizing Achievement and Celebrating Excellence

Not only do people like receiving recognition for their achievements, but they deserve it as well. When you recognize achievement, several things happen. One, they are provided with a vital boost to continue in their excellence. Two, they gain happiness for their job well done. And, three, the recognition spills to other people. It’s almost like a ripple effect that goes beyond just the person receiving the recognition. After all, one good turn deserves another, right?

So, how can you learn to make achievements work for you no matter where you work (education, business and organizations)? Driving excellence in your organization will help to boost employee engagement and clientele satisfaction.

Immediately Acknowledge Success

By recognizing achievement as soon as you see it, you help to encourage everyone around you. Whether that’s in an office or a store, these celebrations of success will strengthen your team and help your colleagues perform better while doing their jobs. And, it will help you to see how other’s success will help your success.

Pageant Ribbons for Your Event Preparation

Even though many pageants won’t start for a month or two, now is the time to get all of your pageant ribbons! Getting your orders in now will ensure that you have all of your ribbon needs before your pageant even starts.

Now, maybe your future event isn’t a traditional beauty pageant featuring all women. Perhaps it is even more of a fair or festival. It doesn’t matter which type of pageant you are hosting, it still needs ribbons. But, what you do need to remember is that some of these custom ribbons take a while to make and ship.

Award ribbons can be a flat piece of ribbon, such as our prize ribbons, or a fancier use of a ribbon material, such as a rosette. Every award ribbon can be presented as a mark of recognition to honor recipients for their accomplishments. Award ribbons also come in all shapes and sizes. So, let’s go over all of our award ribbons and get you started down the right path toward your pageant ribbons needs.

Making Rosettes Work for Your Pageant Ribbons

From adorning pageant sashes to giving them as awards, rosettes have a definite place at your event. Whether they are large or small, each rosette should be chosen specifically for how they will be used and who will receive them. If you need an award ribbon, make sure your prize suits your champion.

For a beauty pageant, you may want one of our larger ribbons like an Amesbury Rosette. With its multiple colors and beautiful pleats and tucks, this ribbon will suit your prize winning beauty. And, if your pageant has a theme, you can customize the center button to match. Add personalized text to the front streamer, and your winner is sure to know how much you admire them.

Pro Tip: Use rosettes to number all of your contestants with pretty pageant ribbons!

But, don’t underestimate our stock rosettes. Some events need pageant ribbons for everyone in attendance, especially when it’s an event for teens or children. We have colors and award names for everyone involved in your pageant (even a participation award).

Retirement & Planning the Perfect Party

Getting from a job to having a career is a goal for which most people strive. And once you have this career, sticking to it can be difficult. When someone reaches certain milestones on this career path, it is always worth celebrating. And the best milestone anyone can reach is retirement.

Once someone has retired (whether for age or tenure), they deserve recognition for their hard work. Celebrating this incredible feat with a party is the perfect way to honor the retiree. And this party will take planning! Here are some easy party suggestions to use to ensure that any retirement party goes off without a hitch.

So, let’s get that retirement party planned!

The first thing to remember is that this party is for one person: the retiree. So make sure it is planned according to their tastes. From the party’s theme (which every event planner you ask will say is a must) to serving drinks and refreshments, everything must be something the retiree will enjoy.

And the best way to accomplish this is to ask the retiree what they want. Don’t guess at what they would find enjoyable, even if you have known them for a while. Make sure they want a party, and that they want to be there. Ask them who they want to attend and where they want to have the party hosted. After all, it is their retirement.

This party is a great way to express your gratitude toward the retiree. It will help those in attendance reflect on all of the things this person accomplished during their chosen career. So, the next thing to remember is to make sure everyone in attendance understands what part they need to play in showing this gratitude. The more memorable you can make the party, the more the retiree will feel how much they impacted your life during their career.

Pieces of the Party (Don’t forget the ribbons!)

Guernsey Rosettes are the perfect gift for a retirement party.

You already have the theme and the guest list, now what does your party look like?

  • Speeches: Whether it is a toast given by the boss or short remembrances shared by everyone in attendance, the retiree is sure to feel the love with speeches prepared about them. Once the speech has been presented to the retiree, give them a printed copy of it tied up with a ribbon.
  • Music: Use comical songs like “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen for sending off your cherished co-worker. A timeless tune to have playing in the background at your party is “Happy Trails” by Roy Rogers. And spice up your decorations around the DJ’s table with ribbon rolls with some song lyrics imprinted in a bright color.
  • Refreshments: Cake, drinks and finger sandwiches are only a start to the list of yummy foods you can have at your retirement party. From sweet to salty, pick your retiree’s favorite foods and make sure they are on the menu. Don’t forget that ribbons are now your best friend especially for decorations for the snack tables and room centerpieces. You can put them everywhere!
  • Games: Does your retiree love Scrabble? Or is there another game that fits their personality to a t? No matter which games are chosen, get everyone involved in making new memories with their old friend. Use badge ribbons or rosettes and create a game specifically for the party.
Rosewood and Floating Acrylic Plaques are perfect for any retirement gift.
  • Recognition: You’re going to miss the retiree. So, why not celebrate them with an award! From an extravagant rosette ribbon to an award plaque, create something that reflects the importance that for which the retiree has worked so hard.
  • Favors: Make all the attendees something to take home that will always remind them of the fun and wonderful times they had with the retiree. You can even ask the retiree for help on this. Then wrap it up and tie a ribbon around it with the retiree’s name imprinted in their favorite color.

After the Retirement Party

Your final planning task is to make sure that both your retiree and attendees have a way to stay in contact with each other. Use a memory book that people can post a picture in and then sign with contact details. Or encourage the use of social media. But, no matter what you choose, make sure both the attendee and retiree are happy to participate.

Using this information to plan a retirement party accordingly, will make it not seem like a huge task, and your party will be the best ever.
