It was a beautiful day in August when the entire Reimer family gathered to celebrate 70 years. Madeline and Clarence Reimer, the parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents of those present, celebrated a lifetime of love and togetherness.
My name is Heidi Reimer-Epp, I’m the CEO of Botanical PaperWorks, and these are my grandparents.
My grandparents have had an incredible legacy. Together, they started a business called Reimer Advertising that impacted clients across Canada, the United States, and Australia. The business supported my grandparents and their family of three boys. And when they retired, my Dad and Uncle took over, and the business supported their two families. I know that watching my grandparents grow their business inspired me to follow a path of entrepreneurship.
In their 70 years together, my grandparents have been very community-minded and generous with their time. They were involved in their church and financially supported many local and international charities and ministries.
So it was fitting that with such a legacy, we all gather together to celebrate. And the party that day was great! My aunt and uncle graciously hosted the celebration, and we had beautiful weather. Of course, there was lovely food and desserts. And we gave every family member a Herb Planting Kit Wedding Favor personalized for the event. People loved that the grow kit gave them everything that they needed to plant and grow and delicious pot of herbs at home.
Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa, for the greatest part of your legacy - this group of 30+ people who love you and who are loved by you. In the words of Richard Bach, “True love stories never have endings,” and I think this love story is one that will endure.
As you can see, seed paper wedding favors aren't just for weddings! They are a wonderful addition to celebrate anniversary parties or bridal showers as well. Guests always love the symbolic nature of the nature of the plantable products and the fact that they get to actually grow something from eco-friendly paper. They are perfect for spring and summer and won't leave any waste behind, just wildflowers or herbs!
