Each year on Gables Day, every associate company-wide, puts aside their normal daily work activities to volunteer in their region. Since 2000, Gables associates and vendors have contributed over 100,000 volunteer hours and $1,000,000 in goods and services. In 2007, Gables Day was dedicated to assisting several hurricane impacted neighborhoods in New Orleans. Gables was awarded the “2007 Community Service Project of the Year” by Multifamily Executive Magazine for the volunteer efforts in New Orleans contributed by Gables associates.

Last month, the Gables Wilton Park team attended the Gables Residential Annual Spotlight Awards. This wonderful event recognizes the yearly achievements of all of the Gables associates in different cities. The Gables Wilton Park team attended the Boca Raton Spotlight Awards ceremony, and it was surely a sight to remember.
This year’s theme was “Alice in Wonderland”, and company associates were encouraged to wear white or black with a touch of whimsy. Associates could either dress up in formal attire or dress as characters from the actual film. Take a look at all of the pictures from this year’s event.
Pinterest is all the rage when it comes to home and apartment projects. We at Gables Wilton Park wanted to put a DIY Apartment Fun Pinboard together of a few of our favorite DIY apartment ideas.
If you are unfamiliar with Pinterest, it is a virtual pinboard, that allows you to take any image from the internet and place it on a categorized pinboard. You can take any image from any website and add it to your collection. Let’s say you search Google for “Decorating Ideas” and you come across a website that has an idea you like, instead of doing it the old school way and bookmarking it, you can download the Pinterest bookmarklet, and add that decorating idea to your “Decorating Ideas” Pinterest board, to come back and view later.
Pinterest is also a great way for brides to plan their weddings. You can search Pinterest for “Wedding ideas on a budget” and you’ll get tons of images that match your search. When you click on an image, it will show you a how-to or where you can purchase what you are looking at.
Do you use Pinterest for other things? Let us know in the comments!
