Company Announcement

I want to start this post by saying that Salutations & Soirees continues to amaze me each month as I watch us grow!  We just fell upon our 2nd anniversary and I am humbled by how far we have come.  Recently, we even received recognition from one our invitation vendors, Carlson Craft, for the Distinguished Dealer award.  Each year Carlson Craft presents only a few select businesses with this prestigious award for outstanding performance and exceptional sales achievements.  We were thrilled and honored to receive this award!  This business would not have been possible without the support of great friends and family and of course all of our wonderful clients that we have come to know over the past 2 years.  With this being said, change is also inevitable as things continue to flourish and grow.  When I looked up the definition of change it can be defined as “to make or become different.”  In today’s world nobody likes change because it can lead to uncertainty and in this day in age we certainly do not need anymore uncertainty!

As many of you know, Salutations & Soirees was founded by myself, Amy Dacus, and my friend and partner, Shannon Reed.  Unfortunately, uncertainty has become a constant in Shannon’s everyday life and as a result she will be stepping down as Co-Owner of Salutations & Soirees.  Her responsibilities at home have become her number one priority as her family needs her there the most right now.  I am attaching the letter that Shannon wrote below to announce her departure for our clients, friends and family.  She will continue to do one-on-one consultations with anyone who is in need of stationery products, but will no longer be involved with the event planning aspect of the business or assume ownership.

Business will continue as usual with Salutations & Soirees and I have taken on the responsibility of Owner and Lead Planner for all events.  My team of assistants are ready to jump on board for the upcoming wedding season and I assure you all there is no reason for concern.  I will also continue carrying all of our current invitation lines and will still be offering the same level of service to all of our clients.  Please feel free to contact me directly should you have any questions or concerns at 864.430.1882 or  I welcome any comments.

Please join me in wishing Shannon the best in her future endeavors!
