We ask for ribbon color preference on our order forms but many times customers leave it to us to decide, and this year we had a gold ribbon crisis – we actually ran out of pure gold ribbon choices by Thursday. Frantic discussions ensued: “Do you think this passes for gold? Is this more cream than gold? What about gold with a little red in it?” We thankfully ended the week with enough gold ribbon to fulfill our orders and next year will be stocking up on this popular color. Pure red, and red and gold, remain the favored choices, with plaids coming in third.
