Update

I have found the "suitcases" for my guestbook alternative. Remember how I wanted something different for the guestbook? Well, I found the cutest mini suitcases that will be perfect for said "guestbook"


Blue Suitcases

Cute, right? I'm thrilled with the color as it will tie in nicely with the Pucci color scheme. I figured I can add a few other decor elements, like a small globe, maybe binoculars and various travel postcards for guests to write well wishes. I even have a little "poem" to go in a frame so my guests will know what the heck all this is for. Ready? Here it goes:

"All The Places We Will Go"

The first stop on our journey has been Love
next stop, maybe St. Thomas.
Share your advices and well wishes
so we may take "you" with us.

It rhymes if you put emphasis on "Thomas" and "Us". Maybe? lol

Anywhoo, that's what it is for now. If anyone has a better suggestion, I'm all ears.

I will more than likely have the middle suitcase open and with the Pucci fabric for further cohesion and it will be the container for the postcards.

I will probably order the suitcases this week and compile the design and edit as needed. I can't wait!


I also found some really nices ones from Tar-jay. They had a vintage-y feel to them and while fabulous, my planner said "nope, nope, nope."




I may still buy them. They are great decor elements yet functional for storage.

Cute! I have done cook books also. You might want to seal them after so the names don't fade. :)

Such a sweet idea! & the suitcases are so cute!

The poem is sweet & the title makes me think of Dr Seuss Oh the Places You Will Go (the cover of that book is a bit Pucci design as well!)
