At some point during that party, your guests will be sitting at the table with some idle time on their hands. So, to keep them busy, why not have the guest book right at their fingertips! Going along with my ‘Last Class’ Retirement party theme, the guests were going to “pass a note” to her during the party. I first caught this idea from blog The Sweetest Occasions, where it had a great 80′s school themed wedding profiled. I used past pictures on the pass a note (I had four different combinations of past pictures on the cards to keep it interesting!). I accompanied the guest book with a pink eraser card holder to tie into my school theme. I had mini golf pencils available for the guests to use.
The cards were 4 x 6 and can be put into a photo album easily. I plan to place the note cards amongst the pictures from the evening. The pink eraser holders were easy to make as well– just cut a deep slit into the eraser and insert the printed card stock. I found there is a difference in pink erasers and some are easier to cut than others. The pink erasers were 3/$1, so it will not kill the budget.
