At our wedding my aunt had an idea for an Original Guest Book. You get a ceramic plate made with legs on the bottom so it will stand up on any counter. You bring it to the wedding with a bunch of water color paints in tons of colors and an equal number of paint brushes. The paint brushes should be in various sizes to mix things up but not too thick because you don’t want anyone to hog all the room or their names be way bigger than the next person. This are some of the names.
When the guests are finished you have to send the plate back to the original potter and they will glaze the plate so it will last forever. It would be best not to mail something like this, so my aunt who had this brilliant idea took it back and got it finished for us.
Here it is today in our house, a reminder of our wedding day, the people we love and lost, and a great place to keep fruits and vegetables on the counter.
PS. My sister has one too.
For a Rustic Guest Book I recommend the wooden slabs. They don’t break but have all the wonderful qualities of our ceramic plate.
If you have any other great guest book ideas send them our way and we will add them to the blog.
