As with most good ideas, they're just old ideas rebranded, repackaged and resold without anyone the wiser. In this instance however, I would like to give credit where credit is due. The idea of the pinwheel as table assignment and parade souvenir comes from our friend Wes. Every year at his annual holiday party there is a white elephant gift exchange and pictionary tournament. The glasses he hands out to guests have a little card with a decoration and number that determines your pictionary team and white elephant order. It's pretty clever, although by this year everyone had caught on and there was a little card trading action going on, but I digress... We found this approach to be both a creative and efficient solution to several of the small details we needed to address. It's more like three birds with one stone as opposed to the traditional two but this isn't exactly going to be a traditional wedding.
