If you are planning a wedding, shower or any party and want to welcome cards, create an inviting place for your guests to place them. Cards are always welcome in my book. You never know what you’ll find inside a card!
I used a store bought box that is made to look like a vintage suitcase. You can use just about anything to hold cards, but make sure you can keep it open for your guests.
I made the ‘cards’ mini banner on a vintage local map, glitter glue and glued it onto a pretty ribbon.
The suitcase was a tad big, so I added a small bud vase, lined with tissue draped an old doily off the corner for added interest.
The doily was white, but I made a tea bath and soaked it for a couple of days.
A couple of the guest who couldn’t make the party, mailed cards, so I went ahead and added them before the party.
I love real flowers, but using a silk flower is just as inviting and pretty.
