By now in 2021, we’re used to the changes that the pandemic has brought about, from social distancing, masks, Zoom meetings, to everything in between. We’ve adjusted how we celebrate birthdays, weddings, and -you guessed it- babies!
If you’re expecting a new bundle-of-joy, or you’re the one hosting the event, you’ve probably read the articles and done the research on the new ways you can throw a baby shower. (Click here for a How-To on throwing a virtual shower!) Unfortunately, many of those ideas mean your friends and family won’t be physically present to fill out the guest book.
Luckily, in a time where the tradition of handwritten well-wishes and advice isn’t always possible, we have a personalized solution to include all of your guests in the memory of the day!
Use Flexibility to Your Advantage
Mail it Out
Just like you’d mail out your RSVPs, you can mail out the Well Wishes & Advice pages with our Page Mailers to be completed by your guests ahead of time. Include a stamp, have them mail back their page before the shower, and there you have it! A beautifully curated, handwritten keepsake to celebrate your new addition, just as if nothing had ever changed.
If your guest hasn’t sent the page back to you in time for your shower, make it a part of your virtual event! Guests can read their well wishes and advice, and dare you not to shed a tear. It’s a sweet way to celebrate the day near or far! Your guests can always mail back their Well Wishes & Advice pages at a later date, and you can add these back to your Memory Book at any time.
Email the Prompts
Another option to gather those well wishes for parent and baby? Email the prompts to your guests and record their answers on your own. You’re still creating a handwritten keepsake, without needing to time it out with the postal service.
Our baby shower prompts work for any journal or memory book – so if you already have one of your own, use us for inspiration! We’d love to see how your Memory Book turned out – tag us @tesseramemorybooks or use #tesseramemorybooks to be featured on Instagram or Facebook!
