For the last week or so we have been working on a basket for the Annual Dinner Dance held by the Gray Beards. For those who do not know who they are; it is a group of men from Rockaway Beach that had played on a basketball team together and they were called the "Graybeards". They saw a need for a group that was community minded and to better the lives of their neighbors anyway that they could. The Graybeards are a great community organization and we thank them for letting us be part of their special night. To learn more about this great organization visit their website: http://www.graybeards.com/index/home
We used this opportunity to make a basket as a promotional item. We filled it with bracelets, head wraps, a tote, scarf, earrings, and we made a beach scene in mason jars too. For the beach scene we used sand, sea glass, some sea grass and a wooden fence to make it look like our very own Rockaway Beach. We placed the head wraps in a jewelry box that we hand painted and we also painted a canvas with an awesome aqua to gray ombre with the word Beach stenciled in white capital letters.
We are hoping to give the basket a laid back, beachy, happy feel, just like our truck will bring to everyplace we go.
Good luck to all those attending the Dinner Dance and we hope you enjoy our basket as much as we enjoyed making it.
