Jerrod Alcaida and Chad Harr, Founders of Nonny's Events and Designs

Founded by local residents Jerrod Alcaida and Chad Harr, Nonny’s is offering an alternative and unique vision for your home, garden and everyday celebrations of life, inspiring harmony between interior & exterior spaces and enhancing those special everyday moments.  A passion for beauty and a desire to help customers create their vision has inspired Jerrod and Chad.

“We’re excited to offer our customers a more personalized approach to gifting, home accessories and life’s celebrations,” says Jerrod Alcaida, lead designer and the vision behind Nonny’s.  “Fountain Hills is a community characterized
by close friendships.  We’ve created Nonny’s to facilitate those relationships, giving our clients a way to express their friendship, gratitude, love, support and sorrow.”

Nonny’s carries an impressive and unique variety of gifts like the “Herban Lifestyle,” a line of natural and organic bath and body products handmade by Mary Kearns, whose passion for sustainability, healing herbs and aromatherapy are shown in each ofthe products she lovingly creates.

There’s a great selection of hand poured candles from a local Fountain Hills artist, and a beautiful specialty candle with a lovely scent that was created exclusively for Nonny’s.  Their outdoor Fire Gel Pots were my favorite, in many sizes and colors that offer a great addition to anyone’s backyard or outdoor table.

But the hallmark of Nonny’s services is truly in Jerrod Alcaida’s inspiring work as an event coordinator.  If you have a wedding, shower, staff party or special celebration coming up, let him create a very personalized, vibrant look that your guests will talk about for years.  Nonny’s offers full service florals for these
events, if needed.  They feature two of the area’s top floral designers, the mother daughter team of Diane &Katherine Gonzalez, each award winning designers.  Floral delivery within Fountain Hills is free.
Stop by Nonny’s and take a “shopping mini-vacation.”  You’ll have fun poking through their eclectic selection in the well-lit showroom, with lots of beautiful treasures displayed artfully for you to enjoy.  I’m betting that something will call to you or remind you of a friendship you haven’t celebrated in awhile.  And, this week, from August 10-17, they’re offering a fun “Recycle Your Old Vases Week.”

Cardsmart: Gifts, Cards and Postal Services in Fountain Hills

It will only take one trip to Cardsmart for gifts, cards or postal service for you to become a fan, but trust me–you’ll be back many times!  Located in the Plaza Fountainside in Fountain Hills, Cardsmart is one of those shops where the owners  truly “get” people and it shows in their offering of gifts and cards that everyone will love to receive.

Fountain Hills has several great locations to purchase gifts and cards, but I like Cardsmart because they have a great selection of cards ranging from sensitive to witty and beyond–and always with discounted prices. You can always find the perfect gift…whether it’s for Grandma or your sexy girlfriend.   Okay, so you’re not in the mood for gifting…..you’ll probably find a few things YOU can’t live without!  Such was the case a few weeks ago when their selection of great looking sunglasses and reading glasses got my attention. Best of all, their prices are very reasonable.

Cardsmart at the Plaza Fountainside

Find Cardsmart at the Plaza Fountainside, at the base of the world’s tallest Fountain in Fountain Hills.  Cardsmart is located between Park Avenue Hair Salon and Jaz Boutique, two doors down from Grapeables Wine Bar.  Cardsmart’s phone number is (480) 837-1432
