@hermrs:  can you get a floral foam boquet form and have them pin them into that and create a ‘mock up’ of your boquet?

Do the table! Have pens and notecards with holes punched in them available, so everyone who brought a brooch can write you a note and attach the brooch to it.
Nevermind – i re-read and you asked for notes! Maybe have a pen and cards just in case someone forgets.

You can be a little elaborate with decorating the table, so that everyone who brings one knows that their gifts are very special to you.
It would also be fun for your guests to see and ooh & aah over all the other brooches you receive!

I think it makes them special to display them lovingly before you make the actual bouquet – that way it seems less of a “gotta get this bouquet done!” mentality (not that you have that).

This has the added benefit of identifying which brooch came from who – you can take photos of each card with the brooch and be able to identify them later (especially if some are “borrowed”). Otherwise you may have to remove the note and you could lose track of your gifts! 🙁

Good luck!
