Vintage: Bringing Back the Guestbook

Whether you implement this idea just for the holidays or all year round, a guestbook makes a wonderful keepsake for you and your family.

When my husband and I got married, I wasn't interested in using just any old guestbook to collect signatures of our guests, I wanted something a little more personal. I ended up purchasing a beautiful blank journal and asked everyone to write anything they wanted - a note, a doodle, a poem - whatever they felt like sharing. You can do the same. Simply ask your guests to write down their thoughts about the visit, your home, the area, or you! Start a new tradition and set out your guestbook during the holidays or any special gathering.

Great idea! I live in NYC and constantly have guests, so this is a perfect keepsake on keeping track of the different visitors we have.

Thanks for the idea, xo
