Save some trees and cool off your guests with this creative Program that doubles as a Hand Fan. The perfect choice for an outdoor event. If you’re in a hot climate, your guests will certainly appreciate the gesture.
No vase? No flowers? No budget?… No problem! These centerpieces are incredibly inexpensive. For the cost of a branch, spray paint, and a few props, you can have yourself a pretty charming centerpiece. I would recommend something these with family-style table seating (rectangular tables) versus rounds. If you want to work manzanita branches on a round table, you’ll need a vase.
I found these inexpensive, hand-written place cards to be absolutely adorable. Using what is already available at the table (a fork), you’ll save on the place card holders. My advice? Whatever the shape, avoid manually cutting it out with scissors. Either purchase pre-made shapes or utilize a paper puncher (like this one). Manually cutting the shapes will be time consuming and it just won’t look as nice! Happy Crafting…
Fill in the blank activities call for fun laughs and memories. The one we found below was used at a wedding, but I’ve seen these used everywhere from business conferences to company outings to baby showers.
If you want to know what people have to say, these are a great way to get it out of them in an upbeat and lighthearted way. It is sure to spark laughter, but can also be very insightful. Have guests fill them out (anonymously or not) and depending on the point you’re trying to make, read them out loud at the event or save them to be posted on the company’s Bulletin Board or your own memory book.
I am a huge fan of events featuring a signature drink. This charming mason jar Pink Lemonade is perfect for an Afternoon activity, Luncheon, or Baby Shower! It’s easy to make with ribbons, labels, a mason jar, and a decorative straw. And at the average price of $1 each to PURCHASE mason jars (not rent, but actually buy), it’s very budget-friendly. When choosing a signature drink, make sure it is fitting to the event, the time of day, and it appeals to the guests in attendance. And be sure to personalize it with a name!
PS. We are also loving the DIY tissue pom poms in the back!
