The perfect formula for props? High school + fall play + set design = Yazoo tubes.
Spring Grove High School, a local school in our surrounding community, was in need of some materials for their fall play called Midsummer Jersey. Yazoo donated six tubes and the students involved in the play turned them into trees as a part of the set design.
The play was a take on William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” that takes place on the Jersey Shore. Claire Shubert, director of the fall play, chose Midsummer Jersey and later found out that it was written by a York County native, Ken Ludwig. She said “the students wanted a comedy and I wanted something linked to Shakespeare, so the play fit perfectly.”
Shubert also picked the play so students could learn more about Shakespeare and the 1960’s, the era the play is revolved around. The play ran from November 18-20, 2016 and
each performance presented a packed house with laughter bouncing off of the walls.
Here we are, a few days away from Christmas and everyone is out shopping for those last minute gifts for family members and friends. As customers, we can easily be “roped in” with department store’s advertising ads in the circular or enticed to shop at a store that has interesting display designs that grab our attention. We are attracted to bright colors, interesting shapes, and of course, a good deal and a good shopping experience.
This year, Target stepped outside of the box and rolled out their pop-up store called Target Wonderland, located in New York City. This free, family-friendly experience is a 16,000 square foot part-store, part-holiday playground that helps everyone find the perfect gift as well as getting back into the Christmas spirit.
Most people are familiar with our tubes for their main purposes of mailing & shipping tubes along with tape and label cores. However, our company manufacturers paper tubes and cores for many different markets. With the help of a Design and Production company, Yazoo Mills was able to contribute to Target’s Wonderland set by manufacturing all different sizes of solid red vista gloss covers, solid white litho covers, and red and white “candy cane” covered paper tubes. Our custom paper tubes helped add a design element to the store’s display front as it is very abstract and modern, grabbing people’s attention. Target’s Wonderland pop-up store has received a lot attention and was even featured on Good Morning America!

This winter proved to be long, snowy, and cold but the good news is that Spring is finally here and the weather is starting to change for the better. Soon enough, flowers will start poking through the ground, giving yards some color and the weather will start warming up, just in time for Spring activities.
Paper tubes can be used to create fun and easy Spring time crafts for all ages. With Easter being less than a week away, kids can decorate paper tubes and make them into bunnies, sheep, or peeps. If you are having a hard time growing flowers in your garden, use paper tubes to create fake flowers that you can keep inside of your house all year round! Are you feeling crafty? Cut pieces of paper tubes and put them together as an inexpensive and creative Spring time wreath to hang on your front door. Is the weather still just a little bit too cold to plant flowers? You can use smaller paper tubes to plant flowers in until the weather gets a little warmer.
