Adding an interactive station to your event is a great way to engage attendees and also provide a keepsake for the guest of honor. One I've recently used is the "Wishing ____ (tree, wall, well, clothesline, etc.)." The wishing area allows guests to leave notes about the honoree, the special occasion, advice, or anecdotes and allows them to be as funny or sentimental as they wish. This station works equally well for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and showers.
This can be a DIY project or Uncommon Goods offers one complete with paper slips.
It helps to give guests detailed instructions on how to complete the project along with creative suggestions to get them started.
Don't forget the pens! You could really make this station active by including glitter pens, colored stamps, and whatever treatments and colors go along with your theme.
After the party is over, the host can take a photo of the finished work and gather the paper, wood, leaves, or other surface selected for the wishes and present them to the honoree. This could also be a great gift after the event if it were incorporated into scrapbook pages with guest photos.
