Hello from sunny San Diego! If you work by referral, you may be familiar with the "pop by" gift as a way of connecting with your clients. I love browsing the web for fresh ideas and have decided to share some of my own. I hope you find them as easy and fun to give away as I have. And remember, if you have clients who are moving to San Diego...I am never too busy for YOUR referrals! I would be honored to help them with their real estate needs.

Mother's Day Pop By

I don't know about you, but Mother's Day has crept up on me. Just a few days away and I'm thinking it'd be a great time to do a pop by! But what can we do that's quick and easy? Pinterest to the rescue! I found my inspiration from Better Homes and Gardens. Their idea was for a wedding centerpiece, and quite frankly, is much prettier (wedding centerpiece). But I liked the idea and had one of those "I can do that" moments, so I adapted it for my pop by.

I started out with just a plain brown paper lunch bag and trimmed about 2" off the top so it wouldn't be so tall.

I purchased some small 4" pots of Marigolds at Home Depot for $1.19ea. and a roll of ribbon.

Then just fold down the top of the paper bag, insert your little plant and tie it off with bow!  The card says "Your Referrals Make My Business Bloom. Happy Mother's Day!" You can include your business card, too. Just stick it behind the card, or put them both in the bag sticking out of the dirt.

Here's the finished product...

Don't forget, if you have friends, family, or clients moving to the San Diego area, I'm never too busy for YOUR referrals!  Happy Mother's you or to yours :)
