Party Favors

For those of you who have known about Kumquat for awhile, you probably know that I'm not so great at updating the website to include all of our products. This is going to change....I swear....hopefully.... However, word still seems to get around (thank you blog and twitter) and we get tons of orders for things like our secret flavors (chocolate w/salted caramel and the new gingerbread are a few) and cupcake favors for weddings and holiday parties. This past weekend for instance we got the biggest party favor order we've ever received! 300 favors wrapped in 600 little individual boxes and then tied together with ribbon. wow, did I underestimate the amount of manual labor that would go into packaging. The ribbon alone took about an hour and a half!
We ended up being late for the delivery, and terrified of the scowling faces we were going to get upon arriving. But when we showed up we walked in to the jolliest most loving group of professionals I've ever met. Really, just think of that one really nice aunt that always wants to hear about what you're doing and then sneaks you candy after dinner. That's them!
Anyhoo....here are a few pictures I was able to take of the whole process. Enjoy!! xo Keavy

Às vezes no vemos assim rodeadas mesmo, mas quando acabamos e fica tudo lindinho, vem a recompensa.
Queria saber se você pode me dar uma dica de empresa para fazer as minhas embalagens. Agradeço...
Parabéns pelo belo trabalho!
Abraços...
