Partygoers can use a guest book to write a personal message to the loved one who is celebrating his birthday. You can purchase a general guest book from a party store, but you can also make the guest book specific to the person celebrating the birthday. The guest book then becomes a keepsake for years to come.
Guest Book Through the Years
If you are going to host a birthday party each year for your child or member of your family, you can purchase one guest book that is signed each year until it is full. You can start this tradition at any age. Through the years, you'll be able to look back and see who attended the party and what they wrote. You'll see how friends and relationships change over time. When one book is full, it's simply time to start the next one.
Photo Guest Book
If you have had the same group of friends and family for several years, you can create a photo book that has pictures of all of you together. They might be pictures from the last birthday party or holidays spent and events where you were together. The photo book does not have to be many pages -- just enough so that most of the people attending your party this year have a picture in the book. Then, when your guests arrive, ask them to sign the guest book. You can create a new book for each year. In this way, it becomes a sort of yearbook.
The days of needing to wait for a photo from the lab are long gone. Set up a station at your birthday party where you can print images on a photo printer and photo paper after they are taken. (You can assign one person at the party to take and print candid pictures.) Toward the end of the party, pass out the pictures and ask each guest to choose one to attach to a blank guest book. (You can use adhesive photo paper or craft glue.) Then asks the guests to sign the book next to their picture.
Video Guest Book
Instead of creating a written memory for your guest book, ask your guests to wish you happy birthday in a video. A video camera, video camera phone, computer or even some MP3 players can be used to shoot the video. Then, after the party, you can upload the video to your computer and edit the birthday wishes together. You can also find some of your favourite music and place it underneath the video to serve as a score for your video guest book.
