When planning a groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate your business or organization’s achievements, don’t forget to include groundbreaking shovels as a parting gift for your very special guests serving as the groundbreaking participants. This gift will leave a long lasting impression on everyone who has taken an interest in the success of your organization.

When you are fortunate to have an achievement like breaking ground on a new structure, it's an event that should be memorialized. It isn't every day that you begin a project as big as building a structure. Whether it's a retail establishment or a much required medical facility, it's still a reason to have a celebration and say thank you. Be sure to have a photographer available to capture the key elements of your event throughout the ceremony program.

Your groundbreaking ceremony attendees should include vital government officials, future and existing company partners, potential consumers and the media. Have enough groundbreaking shovels on hand for each appointed groundbreaker, plus one or 2 extra to be on the safe side.

Near the completion of the formal program, the official groundbreaking photo should be taken. The location should be on the site of the brand-new construction and in close proximity to the event. The standard photograph is the groundbreakers with shovels standing in a line behind a mound of dirt and facing the audience.  When instructed by the emcee, the groundbreaking ceremony principals should put the shovel in the dirt and raise one shovel of dirt for the photo to be taken. Set this up in addition to other fascinating pictures that can be taken ahead of time, such as the architect and business owner talking alongside a rendering of the structure.

Your efforts will make your event a big success and offer the perfect impression that will be remembered for years to come. Don’t forget to commemorate the event by displaying one of the groundbreaking shovels in the building upon its completion.
