Beautiful Paper

 Perusing my usual blog lineup, I found this ::uber:: cute Save the Date from Beautiful Paper.  Two problems though: 1. Finding vintage Yakima post cards may be a little tough (please see the P.S.), and 2. With half the guests coming from the area, a postcard like this wouldn’t produce the same effect as it has for the couple behind this blog.

Then . . . “light bulb”! I can use it just for the OOTs, right?  The wheels were turning and I immediately started experimenting with my Photoshop.  An hour or so later and voila, this little guy was born :)!

Welcome to Yakima

1. Welcome to Yakima: The Palm Springs of Washington sign 2. Authentic Valley apricots 3. The Capitol Theatre 4. Bottles of locally made wines

My idea {right now} is to print these out in a tag size (after a little more editing), string and pin them (with these cute little things) to apples and place them in the guests rooms along with a Valley map, local wineries brochure and a Yakima food/restaurant guide, which can all be found at the Visitor and Convention Bureau!  A small and inexpensive “welcome” arrangement for your OOTs!

If anyone would like the PDF of this welcome sign, let me know and I can post it so you can use it for your guests!


P.S. If you are interested in searching for vintage Yakima post cards, Robin, at the Yakima Herald, suggests looking into The Bindery, Craft Warehouse and antique shops around town (don’t forget the fruit stand on I-82 outside of Selah!).  If you can find even one, she further suggests copying the {little jewel} onto card stock and creating the STD from the image you found! Another cool piece of history to share with your OOTs and the local Yaks alike!

    I didn’t know how creative you are… and you’re MY daughter! Great work Kadee. It’s wonderful. Yakima doesn’t know what a great ambassador they have in YOU! You never cease to amaze me!
