Guest List (slightly OT)

I'm hosting a Baby Shower for my new nieces next weekend. It looks like they will still be in the hospital at that time, so we will be having it in the hospital apartment my brother and SIL are staying in. I have the basic decor, but I need a few things.

The one I wanted to get suggestions on is the guest list. I would kind of like to make to scrapbook pages for her and have one of them be the guest list and one of them for pictures from the shower. Any thoughts or ideas on how to do this. Should I put lines on the paper or make it freehand for them to write little notes. I have absolutely no idea how many people will be coming since no one will RSVP until they know the location.

i made our wedding guestbook -- i used a mini album that ties shut. i printed the lines on the paper. some pages just have pictures.

you could do a page for the guest list, some pages ready to put pictures on, and then another page with gifts received. you could also add a blank page for people to put well wishes for the girls or their life as a new family.

Just a thought... may be too complicated depending on how many are there

What if you took pics of everyone who was there, print them really small, and do a "hidden journaling" kind of thing behind their picture... maybe just their signature or a note...

This might work...

My MIL for our wedding rehersal dinner bought a standard "guest book". The guests signed in and afterward she used the rest of the pages for scrapbooking the pics of the event. I'll take pics if you want to see what it looked like.

Not sure if you are talking to me or not but I'll answer anyway. Lol

They are good. Scout is acting out a little - taking pacis away from Dylan and any baby at daycare! Dylan is getting bigger and stronger every day. Both girls go to the doctor on Wednesday... Scout for her 15mo apt and Dylan for her 1mo. I can't wait to see how much they've both grown. Smile

She is working on a 12x12 book of the babies in the hospital, so I think I'm just going to make a couple of 12x12 pages. I went to Michael's today and picked up some girly baby paper and stickers, etc. I'm thinking I'll just have a page with decor on outter edge only for guests to sign in on. Do you think this will look okay?

My suggestion would be to do the 12x12 pages, and maybe have different colored pieces of paper with lines on them with maybe prompts (name, message sort of thing) ... sorry if someone else suggested that, I didn't read all the replies (trying to catch up lol).
