Homecoming 2013 Football Rose Boutonniere
Homecoming is typically celebrated by schools between late September and early November. It may feel like it’s too early to be thinking about homecoming events, but they will be here before you know it.

Football Roses can be used as boutonnieres and corsages for the homecoming dance. They also make great gifts for returning football alumni and for the homecoming king and queen. In Texas, Football Roses can be used as accessories for homecoming mums.

When the football season draws to an end in late October/early November, Football Roses can be given as special keepsakes for the players and parents on Senior Night. Why spend money on a live rose gift that will die in a few days? Football Roses last forever and preserve the memories created from countless hours of hard work on the field.

Softball Tournament Survival Tips

July 5, 2013 Leave a reply

 

 

Let’s face it: organizing a softball tournament is never easy.

Between the fundraising concerns, venue and logistical considerations, choosing the right awards for the players and gifts for tournament volunteers, organizing a softball tournament can certainly leave you feeling like you’re out of ideas and resources.

Here at Sports Roses, we have some great ideas to make your tournament a home run:

  1. You can use Sports Roses and other unique items for fundraisers. Finding the necessary funding for your tournament can be a daunting task. Thankfully, running a fundraiser is an easy way to help raise the money your league will need. Many teams have had success selling novel sports-relate items, like Sports Roses. They make a great gift for any occasion and can sell very quickly in your local community.  When you purchase Sports Roses in bulk and resell them at your events, you can earn as much as $9 per rose. You can also pass out flyers to refer people to purchase from the Sports Roses Online Store and earn 10-20% on sales you refere. By using one or both of these options, you have another helpful source available to raise the funds necessary to finance your softball tournament. Sports Roses are just one kind of novel and attractive items that appeal to all sports fans. Some other options might include: personalized softball cards, team water bottles, or autographed balls. You could even do a softball themed photo booth to raise money.

  2. Sports Roses are great awards and thank you gifts. Let’s face it, if you’ve organized a few softball tournaments in the past, then your gift ideas for volunteers and players may already be outdated and uninspired. Now, you can’t expect your event to be a home run, if your gifts and awards are not special and memorable. Sports Roses are one way to bring some freshness and uniqueness to your awards. Give Sports Rose arrangements to sponsors, volunteers, and to each player and coach of the winning team. Sports Roses symbolize their passion for the game and bloom forever. There are so many different ways you can use Sports Roses to make your tournament one that everyone will remember!

  3. Increase your event attendance by hosting a prize raffle. Are you short on attendance and want to attract more people? Prize raffles are a fun and exciting way to capture the interest of your community. But you’ll need to offer some cool prizes that people actually want to draw your community to your event. A great way to minimize your prize expenses is to solicit local businesses to donate giveaways. Businesses are always looking for ways to increase their visibility and product donations are usually an effective way for them to do that. For a desirable, high-ticket grand prize, you can ask parents to help pitch in for a larger donation. If you have purchased Sports Roses in bulk to resell at your event, set a few aside to make a Sports Roses bouquet as one of your raffle prizes. Give everyone that attends a free entry into the raffle and then charge $1 per raffle ticket for additional entries.  Advertise your prizes in your event program and have everyone distribute it throughout your community.

With a little of creativity (and some Sports Roses!) your next softball tournament can be a huge success. Inject some fresh ideas, attract a larger crowd and enjoy the games. After all, softball season doesn’t last forever!
