Friday's Fabulous Find: Family Tree Guestbook!

Recently, Associate Planner, Corinne Colledge had some very creative clients! Not only was their family tree guest book a fun twist on the traditional guest book, but it also provided their guests with a fun activity during the cocktail hour. An added bonus is that their tree now serves as a lasting keepsake for them as well!

Want to make your own Family Tree Guest Book? Start with an over sized print of your tree without guest names on it. Setup a few different stamp-pads. You can either do a range of colors that matches your wedding color or shades of green, mimicing natural leaves. Also set out a grouping of matching pens.

Leave a small sign asking guests to imprint their thumb onto a branch and use the pens to add their name to identify their thumbprint. Be sure to encourage randomness to make the final design organic and fun!

To keep the project tidy, provide a few "Magic Erasers" or a basket of small moist toilettes in easy to use individual packets.

If you're not the DIY type, check out The Etsy Shop by Lovliday - she offers signs and blank trees at a really great price! Enjoy!
