I have been working with a group for a bridal shower. I wanted a fun way to display the wish list - so here it is. The guest can come by and "pick" what they want to give for a gift. Each card has a picture, the name and price on it. I mounted them on scrapbook paper, then glued them to dowels. I will let you know how it went over.

That is so cute!!

I've been struggling with how to display the wish list for an upcoming shower I'm doing. This is a great idea and I alrady have the basket. Now how did you get them in the basket - what did you attach them to - that looks really great!!

How I did it

I had tried using the tool turnabout, but it was too small. I had the basket and bought the rectangle floral foam (mine came 5 in a package for $2.00) I put 3 pieces in the bottom. I didn't cut them - just smashed them in to fit. There is another block of foam going the opposite direction on top in the middle. I used straight pins to hold it in place - then I started pushing my dowls in. I know nothing about how to make arrangements, so I just kept sticking them in until I was out. I had to cut some sticks down. I thought it was kinda cute for my first try.

:D That is VERY cute! If you can, try to collect all the little pictures so you can recycle them and use them at the next wedding shower. What a great idea!

the basket was a hit

My host and the bride just love the basket with the wish list in it. The guest immediately started "picking' their items out. It was great. Sales were over $600. It was worth the time and effort!!

That's wonderful! It looks like you used a cute font when you typed up the product names. Which font is that? It looks cute! :)

Font

I used the "Curlz MT" font. I have been chatting with the hostesses trying to finalize the show and they are still commenting on how cute the basket was. Orders are still coming in and I am doing the happy dance.

Pictures

I cut up pictures out of 3 different catalogs. They all had different views for products. You could download them from the website and print them out, but I had some time to kill and did it the old fashion way. (Actually, we were snowed (iced) in and there was a 9 hour marathon of the Thorn Birds so I sat on the couch all day and was creative)

I took a couple of up close pictures of the cards - front and back - but I didn't bring my attachement to download them to the computer. I will get them up as soon as possible.

Thank you!!!

Shannon,

Thank you so much for your basket idea!!!

I had already made my product wish list cards last January for my first shower, but was not happy with how I displayed them. I had put them on two foam core boards which took up more room than the host had to give.

I have another shower this week and was trying to come up with another way to display the cards - and viola! - saw your posting.

So this is what mine looks like. Mine are color coded as well... white = $0.00 - 20.00... silver = $20.01 - 50.00... pink = $50.01 - 100.00... and lavender = $100+.

Thank you again! This is a great way to display them and much easier to transport!!!

cute ladies! I had my first shower last month and I special ordered red heart doilies (since that was the wedding color) and cut out all of her wishlist pasted them to each heart then hung them on a tree I have as a decoration in my house. I hung white x-mas lights at the base and everyone liked how it turned out. "The gift TREE" was cute to look at I think!

Thanks so much for the creative idea, It is so hard for me to think things up like that! Do you mind if I use this idea in a future show?
Thanks

Bridal shower wish cards

What I have done for over 5 years now is separate the cards into financial categories: $20 and under, $21-40, and $40+, then I purchased three VERY small baskets at the fabric store, and I put bridal tule bows on them. I have the baskets out and the guests pick a card from the category they plan on spending and then they just give it to me with their order. This way there are no duplicates and people can give what they feel they can afford, or go in with others, or whatever. I emphasize in my showers that they are helping the bride by not only purchasing gifts for her but by buyng things for their own kitchen, and ask them to give me the card they chose with the order for their kitchen. I then draft someone at the payment station to make a receipt for the bride with her gifts, and on their order I add what they bought for the bride and circle it, so they know what was theirs and what was hers.

It works well, and is way easy to transport. I put the baskets on the table with the apron.
