I love our Do Not Disturb door hangers designed by Sarah Goff! Each OOT guest will receive one,

I went with a little more pink of a lip because it went better with my skin tone, but I'm SUPER happy with the results!!

This was John's first DIY project as the lead!

We printed our trivia squares and used modge podge to decopauge the squares onto 4x4 tiles! Each guest will get a different one of the 10 to use as a coaster AND to break the ice if they don't know people at their table! :)
