Forest Scavenger Hunt

Quinn and I wish to host a green ceremony....
Since all of our family members and friends that will join us on our special day will have to travel - creating a large carbon footprint for our party to begin with - we decided that we wanted to use as much from nature as we could. We also love that gathering things is free, lots of fun and makes for great memories!
I sent off an invitation to the ladies for a day of gathering, a forest scavenger hunt - to spend time enjoying each other and gathering decorations for the ceremony next year.... It turned out to be a lovely day with a few great finds like tiny pinecones and delightful leaves changing color. Here are the invitations that I put together for Melanie and Jennifer....

An acorn stamp and a scroll with the details of our gathering

"Along our merry way... should we find these gifts of the forest ~ may we gather them in gratitude and leave our seeds of thanks."
(in each package was a bag of birdseed for us to sprinkle as we gathered)

The list of items to gather

"Every acorn has in it the potential to be a great oak tree, that is lively, deep rooted, strong, long lasting, air purifying and a place of shelter BUT if it is not placed in soil it will not grow to be all that it can be."

Look at these adorable tiny pinecones ~

Here's a picture of my sexy husband to be crafting at the Denver Art Museum from recycled garbage.
