Business Description

We started small in 1996 with Dove Releases and decorating a few Weddings and other Events, which grew as we received more and more referrals and as our reputation and inventory expanded. Doves In Flight, LLC, grew in 2007 when we launched Chair Covers of Lansing and built a large inventory of Chair Covers of differing designs to fit the multiple styles of chairs found at event venues. Complementing the Chair Covers, we have a huge selection of colors in Satin Sashes and Organza Sashes, with matching Table Runners in dozens of colors. With our large inventory, we now have many event venues and other companies utilizing our services.
Our $300,000+ decorating inventory includes Linens, Centerpieces, assorted Lighting, Dance Floor and Ceiling Decor, Stage Props, Pipe and Drape, Pillars, artificial Trees, Arches, Aisle Runners, Silk Flowers and Greenery, Easels, Table Accessories, Cocktail Tables, Folding Tables, Balloon Accessories and much more!
Our white doves are a way to add a special touch to any event. Doves are symbolic of peace, harmony, wealth and hold many other spiritual significances.
We currently have funeral homes within a 90 mile radius releasing white doves for funerals and memorial services. The doves are trained to return to their home when released.

Market Outlook/
Competition:
The Mid-Michigan business market is diverse and stable because of its dynamic mix of industry, Michigan State University, the State Capitol and Cooley Law School. With a steady, year-round event calendar, in addition to popular wedding venues within easy reach, the buyer has an opportunity to take advantage of a great market and continue to grow.
Competition consists mostly of small, independent home-based decorators, with a few rental stores in the area. As a larger independent, Doves In Flight currently rents decorating inventory to smaller vendors.
Growth & Expansion:
With our reputation, inventory and current contracts, the buyer will have a giant step-up on the competition to continue the fun experience of turning other peoples' dreams into reality. There is nothing like the experience of a happy bride at the conclusion of her wedding reception!
