Planning FCCLA Awards Events

We are a small 2-A school, with the same budget concerns as other school districts.  My students wanted to have a memorable banquet, but were worried that we would have to compromise quality and style, while trying to stay on target with our budget.  While looking at the Anderson’s website, my mind was put at ease when I noticed that you could purchase a small quantity of beverage glasses, and just pay a small fee for ordering under the minimum purchase price.  I was actually able to purchase personalized glasses for my event.
The beverage glasses that we ordered were a hit!  Our theme this year was “Ignite the FCCLA flame”  We placed red, yellow and orange tissue paper in each glass, so that it looked like a flame, and placed the glasses on all of the tables.  We wanted to make sure to add the year, so we added the star to our beverage glass with the year imprinted on it.  I was told that the glasses would take 7 days to arrive, and was pleasantly surprised when they came in only 4 days!  Way to go Anderson’s!
Spirit BannerWhile I was on the line with the representative ordering my glasses, she told me about a special promotion they were running for the Vinyl Banners.  They were such a great deal that I ended up ordering 2 of them.  I quickly got online, while she walked me through the process on the phone, and designed my signs.  I decided to purchase two of them, one for the hall and one for the football field fence.  We simply wrote, “FCCLA supports the BUSHLAND FALCONS.”  I used our school colors and added some stars to the design.  Again, you’ve outdone yourself.  Other teachers could not believe the quality of the banners, for the price paid.  Thank you for making such a quality product at a price that fits any budget.
