The Giving Tree


Who didn't love The Giving Tree as a child?  Heck, who doesn't love it now, as an adult?  This endearing tale of love has been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember. And what better way announce your upcoming nuptuals than by incorporating this sweet story.

Because the groom who designed this save-the-date is so awesome, he decided to share the template and an easy tutorial with Merriment Design.  Check it out for step-by-step directions on how to make this your own!  He also threw in precious custom address labels to match!

And we like the way Merriment Design is thinking.  While this is perfection for a fall wedding, it can easily be tweaked to be suitable for a spring or summer ceremony or even an invitation for a child's birthday party or baby shower.  We absolutely love the whimsy of this save-the-date and the warm fuzzy memories of favorite childhood stories that it invokes, but we also love the hint of eco-friendliness that's implied with the tree theme. 

What's your favorite childhood story? Have you ever incorporated it into an event that you've planned?
