Etsy Love: Wishing Tree Tags

Tuesday, March 6, 2012
One reason I LOVE Etsy is for the wide range of charming products created by talented designers at affordable prices. Also, most all of the designers on Etsy are willing to work with you to get that extra special and custom piece that you are struggling to find elsewhere.

For those of you that are in the midst of planning a baby shower, sip and see, or Christening party a unique substitute to the ordinary guest book is to create a whimsical wishing tree.

The wishing tree can easily be created by branches arranged in a vase. (You can find beautiful branch options at your local craft/floral store.  These days, even grocery stores have great options.  Central Market has a fabulous floral department.). 
Once filled out by your guests the wishing tags or cards can be attached to the branches.  This makes for a great statement decor piece at the shower and guests will love reading all of the cheerful messages left for the new parents and their little bundle.
These cards make a perfect keepsake for you to cherish for years to come.

Below are some of my favorite wishing cards discovered on Etsy:

A fun alternative to the wishing tree is to display the cards on a line with clothespins.  Perfect for a spring/summer shower.

I love this, Liz! I'll mentally file it away as I'm anticipating yet another wave of babies in my life in the next year or so. :)

Please give your (used to be) babies a squeeze for me!
