Trophies and Sports Roses: A Winning Combination

July 25, 2013 Leave a reply

While trophies are great awards for sporting accomplishments, they can be quickly forgotten when stacked along with countless other trophies received throughout an athlete’s career. How many ordinary trophies from competitions have found their way to the basement or attic because they weren’t unique enough to be displayed in the living room?

In this post, we’ll show you how you can bring life and uniqueness to even the simplest trophies using Sports Roses as nifty additions. Now, you may think that roses are only reserved for female athletes, but men can also appreciate of the trophy-rose combination. Everyone appreciates attention to detail!

By choosing to include Sports Roses, you are adding something new and different that is guaranteed to catch the attention of sports enthusiasts. Sports Roses are handcrafted artificial roses made from the same leather used to make baseballs, softballs, footballs, volleyballs, and basketballs. They are unique pieces that have the personality and creative flair needed to earn an inspired spot in the living room trophy case.

Here are some easy and fun ideas for adding Sports Roses to the prize pool for your next sporting event:

  1. Give Sports Roses bouquets together with a trophy. The Olympic committee hands out flower bouquets to podium finishers, so why not introduce Sports Roses bouquets to your event? Sports Roses bouquets can be custom-made to match your specific sporting event. Give trophies and Sports Roses bouquets to the winners to make your event stand out from all the rest.  You can be confident that the combination will be valued and appreciated. Or, if you like the look or fresh flowers, consider mixing Sports Roses into a traditional bouquet to make it really pop!

  2. Pin a Sports Rose boutonniere to make a stand-out trophy display. People prefer novel and unique prizes; if you give out ordinary looking trophies, people won’t be as excited to get them. Pinning a Sports Rose boutonniere to a trophy gives it that extra little something not available with stock trophies given out at so many events. A Sports Rose adds the finishing touch to instantly transform a plain trophy into a novelty.

  3. Have a local supplier make unique trophies with the Sports Rose as a highlight. Many event organizers stay away from custom-made trophies because they are expensive. It doesn’t have to be this way. Even a simple design made from just a steel rod can be unique if you incorporate Sports Roses into the design. Work with a local supplier to use Sports Roses as trophy highlights and accents while still making sure that the outcome is affordable.

  4. Make a medal using Sports Roses to go with trophies. You can show that the awards you are handing out are extra special if you give away a trophy and a medal at the same time. Remember, though, medals don’t always have to be the traditional design. Now, you can attach Sports Rose boutonnieres to the end of a nice lanyard and have a unique medal that you can proudly give out.

The best awards are those that are unique, unforgettable, and carefully crafted. Common and ordinary awards, on the other hand, get chucked to the side and quickly forgotten. Don’t allow the awards you give out at your event to be “just like any other.” Use Sports Roses to express your event’s passion for sports and to add personality to your awards.

Which of these options is a winning combination for your next event?
