Welcome bags

This can be done in addition to the gifts made to your guests. For an animation and an additional souvenir, it is possible to set up “welcome bags”. However, the container and the contents must be considered. This way, you will be able to slip in different gadgets useful on D-Day. It can be tissues for the pretty emotions, confetti for the exit of the town hall, a personalized bottle of water or the program of the day. It’s a delicate attention that has the great advantage of putting the guests in a soft mood right from the start.
