Whether it’s your first or second time here, your weekend at the DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase is something you’ll want to remember forever!
How do you do that? Just take a look at today’s blog for a few keepsake ideas that will help you relive the high-flying fun long after you leave.
Ticket stubs, receipts from show weekend, and little trinkets you find along the way can be displayed with pride in a handmade shadow box. Polaroid photos also make a great addition! Once you get home, you can assemble it all together, paste the items into a glass casing, and hang it up somewhere special. This is a handy option for preserving the three-dimensional souvenirs that can’t quite fit into a traditional photo frame.
If you find yourself with lots of digital photos at the end of the weekend, put them to use in a fresh spin on the traditional scrapbook! Photo albums still make for classic keepsakes, but today’s technology gives you an easy way to convert digital memories into tangible mementos. That precious photo of you and your child in the cockpit? Put it on a blanket or turn it into a family holiday card (the show falls just before the holiday season, after all!). These are just a few of the easy ways to preserve those once-in-a-lifetime moments.
Of course, one of the easiest ways to commemorate your trip is with exhibitor treasures and souvenirs picked up right at the show! A few offer something truly sentimental… like Rachel’s Jewelry, where you can find aviation-themed jewelry created by a future pilot, or Etched Memory, where you can design beautifully-crafted, custom-etched crystal keepsakes. It’s not hard to find something you’ll love with so many great exhibitors presenting on site!
We hope that these ideas help you capture the spirit of sport aviation and, of course, time with the people you love most!
