About

Stop eating those seeds!

"Stop eating those seeds!" That's a phrase that I say many, many times a day. As I stand in my kitchen preparing bird seed favors for brides and mothers-to-be, my two dogs stand guard at my feet waiting (and hoping) for seeds to fall to the floor. Who knew dogs love bird seeds!

As an event planner for a major hospitality brand, I found plenty of creative opportunities during the week. Green Doxie Events came about in 2011 when I sought a creative outlet for the weekends.

I knew I wanted to create a green company and I knew I wanted it to be focused on the fun events - weddings, baby showers, birthdays ...

So, after a bit of research (and a TON of trial and error), my bird seed favors came about.

In keeping with my commitment to be green, I scoured the web for providers of eco-friendly supplies, packaging materials and more to help me create my eco-friendly favors. In the process, I have learned so much more about the efforts that exist for being kind to our environment and it makes me super happy to be part of that crowd!

By the end of 2011, Green Doxie Events gained enough momentum that I resigned to pursue the business full time.

And now, I find myself daily repeating the phrase (and happily, I might add) - "Stop eating those seeds!"

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs

WHEN SHOULD I ORDER?
We always suggest that you order as soon as you have made the decision.

If your wedding or shower is still months away, it's okay. We add your order to our production schedule (ordering ahead of time ensure your spot in our production in case we get busy) and then we ship 2 to 3 weeks prior to your event.

We ship using Priority, so you should receieve your order 2 to 3 days after it has shipped.

.........................................

WHEN WILL MY ORDER SHIP?
To ensure freshness you, your guests or your gift recipient (and ultimately the birds), all orders are shipped 2 to 3 weeks prior to your event date.

Please be sure to note your event date in the customization field on the product page before placing the product into your shopping cart (or let us know your event date in your order notes).

We ship using USPS Priority, unless otherwise noted or requested, which generally arrives to you in 2 to 3 days after we have shipped. This allows the product to arrive to you in plenty of time for your event while still ensuring freshness. :)

.........................................

HOW LONG WILL MY BIRD SEED FAVORS LAST?
We like to say their lifespan depends on how hungry your neighborhood birds are!

Bird seed favors from Green Doxie Events have lasted as long as 6 months before they begin to deteriorate (we aim to make them sturdy!). However, to be on the safe side, we generally say they'll last about 3 to 4 months before becoming brittle.

As the favors age, they will dry out and begin to crumble. The birds don't mind - it makes it easier for them to pull seeds! But for our humans - well, we like the custom shapes to remain shapes!

The favors are pretty sturdy and even as they age the seeds will slowly fall off ... don't expect the heart or ducky or flower to simply fall apart in your hand just because it's hit the 3-month mark.

We make all orders fresh and ship 2 to 3 weeks before your event date. That way, when your guests or gift recipients get the treat, it's plenty fresh!
