Over the years at A-BnC Parties and More, we have cut probably thousands of cut outs. When Valarie from Southaven, Mississippi, called and asked if we were able to cut very tall sports theme centerpiece cut outs we were eager to accept the challenge. Valerie was doing a sports banquet and she wanted to use the tall sports centerpiece cut outs for this year’s banquet as well as for future banquets.
She asked if we could make 24” tall cut outs. Of course we could! Besides, cut outs that size are very dramatic. They command great attention when placed in a centerpiece.
Five Different Sports Centerpiece Cut Outs
Valarie had five sports themes in mind. She wanted us to make golf, bowling, basketball, cheerleading and baseball cut outs. Of course I said we would be delighted to do them for her. I sent her pictures for approval before we actually made the cut outs for her.
She also asked we paint the tall sports centerpiece cut outs for her. We both agreed painting the cut outs silver would be a great neutral color. Silver coordinates with almost any color theme and the silver paint actually has a nice shine to it when finished.
These tall sports centerpiece cut outs had to be shipped to Valarie which presented a challenge. Of course they had to be shipped and arrive at their destination without breaking. After giving it some thought, I came up with a solution.
I decided to sandwich the tall sports centerpiece cut outs in between two pieces of shipping cardboard and then insert them in a shipping box. This technique not only stopped them from moving around in the box, but also protected them during shipping. It worked out well and the tall centerpiece sports cut outs arrived in perfect condition.
Once Valerie received the tall sports centerpiece cut outs, she mounted them on one of our tall flexible plastic tubes and inserted lights in the tube. You can see for yourself the finished sports theme centerpiece is very dramatic and added a nice presence in the room. Using five different sports gave the party an action feeling and helped guests get into a party mode.
Thanks Valerie for the picture!
