    Q:
      Favors with a Local Flair
    We want to give our guests something special with a local flavor. Any suggestions?

     

     

     

     

    A:  You may consider greeting each of your guests with a gift basket filled with local treats. Baskets shaped like the state of Oklahoma can be filled with cheeses, salsas, Mason’s Nuts, Neighbor’s Coffee, and, to top it off, Oklahoma cow patties. Check our directory for gift ideas.



    Q:  Getting Guests around Town
    Many of our guests are coming from out of town and we want to show off the best of Oklahoma City. Any fun transportation ideas?

     

     

     

     

    A:  Transport your guests around the historic Bricktown area in a private, chartered water taxi with a guide to narrate all the points of interest along the canal.  You may also consider a trolley, limousine or shuttle based on the number of guests.  Check out our transportation ideas in our directory for a list of companies.
