Celebrating Special Occasions during the Pandemic

Celebrating Special Occasions during the Pandemic

The Global Pandemic has caused so many of us to cancel our gatherings and special events.  It’s even left us thinking about new ways that we can safely celebrate with friends and loved ones without compromising our health and those around us. More so, with so many temporary closed businesses it’s hard to know what companies are available to help us drum up new ideas and overall keep our celebrations going. After all, with so much uncertainty and despair around us we need to find ways to smile and be around the people we love the most. This is why I recently teamed up with 10 local businesses who all offer services that can help you create great gatherings and lasting memories for years to come. Check them all out here.
