Guest and Gift Table

It's been a long time but I'm back and I'm a Mrs!! Yee, Haw!

So, now that I've finally got some free time on my hands I don't know what to do with myself. I'm going to start by showing off the projects I took the DIY route with- because I'm so proud and pleased with how everything turned out. (All photos can be enlarged by clicked on them.)

I posted the RSVPs on a cork board covered with fall fabric and displayed it at the dinner on Friday night. I saw a lot of people enjoying it and I heard a lot of people saying they should have got it together and done some art work. Of the 90 invitations we sent out, only 40 were returned with some art work as we had requested. Bah Humbugs!

Two views of our guest book/gift table. I had wanted two separate tables for these things I just assumed I would have them, I didn't know that most people use one table for both and unfortuntly, there wasn't another table available, so what did I do? Well, I'm proud to say, I shrugged it off and went with the flow. It's a bit crowded but I think it still looks good.
We did a version of the wish tree using cards I had made. I used spare paper I had and printed out an inspiring word on each card and stamped them with the same leaf design I used on the invitations. We got a lot of great cards and I thought they looked beautiful hanging on our tree.

For the card box, I repurposed an old travel case that had belonged to my husbands grandmother. It looked great and was perfect for cards plus I was glad to have some family "heirlooms" present.
