Home & Soul
"My mission is to create more positive energy in our world. Through my work, I strive to make a difference by utilizing my creativity to help others. I enjoy sharing tips, ideas and resources to help build harmonious, mindful environments, love creating Gifts and Floral Designs for you, and hope to be of service to those in need, in whatever way I can assist."
"My company's name has changed several times as we evolved through stages of growth. It was originally named A Floral Fantasy, then with the addion of a highly successful gourmet gift line soon became
'Gift Basket Delights'. This eventually grew into Designs By Dia, and then rolled into GCDesigns!
With a deep appreciation for the absolute Blessings in my life, I seek to find ways to share tranquility with those whose lives I touch. In 2020, I renamed my company one last time:
'Serene Home Soul & Gifts'.
My wish for you is that you forever find a sense of calm, peace, and serenity in your lives."
"We fully support Sustainability, Global/Eco-Friendly Products and Holistic Approaches to all services and product. Please carefully consider your

We use eco-friendly packaging, recycled materials, reusable giftboxes/bases, and support green, sustainable, Fair-Trade companies and praactices. All for the good of our Global Community. We care about people and our enviroment.
Each year we select a charity organization to support, and donate a percentage of all product and service sales to them. From November 2020 through December 2022, we chose St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Your purchases make a BIG difference in families living with cancer, and the ongoing research to find a cure. We've all lost someone we know to cancer, and the fight must continue.
My father, Elia Carlo 'Charles' Rapagna, recently lost his battle with cancer., and in his honor we created a Memorial Fund to support other families at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. You can make a direct donation to fight cancer, by clicking the photo link.
We also support 'The Trees Remember', which rasies funds and plants trees to reforest US National Forests across the States. "YOU can Give a Gift that will last for generations"! Consider adding this unique gift to your order, or click link and plant a tree, or grove, as a Tribute or for a Special Celebration.
Your purchases 'give back' and make a big difference in many lives. We are grateful to you,
thank you for your purchases, your support and prayers.
