One of the best things about my flags and my work is the terrific people I meet along the way, as well as the beautiful stories I hear about how and why they hang their flags.


I have decided to share some of the stories here for inspiration.


If you have a story to share, please email it to info@arubymoon.com.


Wedding

  • A one-of-a-kind set of flags were given to a bride at her bridal shower, including panels made by guests who couldn't attend, to wish her well on her special day.
  • A long and gorgeous set was created using drawings, quotes, and handwritten messages to celebrate and honor a couple at their wedding. Everyone in the wedding party completed a panel and they hung the flags at the wedding and reception. Now they hang in the couple's backyard!
  • Custom sets made for couples in their wedding colors.
  • Custom sets of flags made as place/name cards at a wedding reception.


Support

  • Flags were made by a group of friends in an office to show support and comfort for a co-worker battling cancer. The flag later became an important and cherished keepsake for her daughters.

Inspiration

  • Friends gathered this past New Years Eve and each created a set of flags, with what they wanted to invite into their lives during the coming year. I saw them at a recent show and they told me the flags hang in their home as a bright and beautiful daily reminder of what they are working towards and welcoming this year.
  • Flags have hung at sporting events full of messages of encouragement and support for the athletes.
