I found this template on a wedding bee blog, and knew it was my perfect save the date:
Giving Tree Save the Date Wedding Announcement for Fall
The Giving Tree is my ALL TIME fav book ever. Shel Silverstien defined my childhood (he even came to my preschool one day.. yes, I met him!)
My wedding colors are turquoise and moss green, so I re-worked the template to go more with my style. The envelopes were a bit of a p.i.t.a. to print on (strings stuck in the printer!). But it was worth it, because i LOVE these, and they are so perfect for us.
I also printed a larger version of just the tree with our initials, which is now hanging in our bathroom.
I ordered the stamps on zazzle.com. I really like them, but I wasn’t crazy about the blatant zazzle.com advertisement on them, any advice on where to find nice stamps when it comes to real invitation time?

I love that book! (Though as a kindergarten teacher I think I’m required). I’m jealous you got to meet him.

These are adorable! I love Shel Silverstein.
I actually think most people don’t notice the Zazzle logo on the stamps, but you could use vintage stamps instead. 100 Layer Cake has a great post here on looking for them.
