Captain Sensible, who's that?
Captain Sensible, is the person you nominate to look after your Fingerprint Tree. They help guide people to use your tree. After all, there's still a lot of people out there that haven't seen a Fingerprint Tree before. They can also help with children, as well as the elderly.
Like any good super hero, Captain Sensible works better with a sidekick. It's the sidekicks job to go out to the groups of guests, and usher them over to Captain Sensible, to participate in the Fingerprint Tree.
The best time to do your Fingerprint Tree, is as early in the event as possible. On entrance is good, before they get too engrossed in conversation, or have to many beverages. If it's a wedding, the best time is when you disappear to get photographs taken, and all your guests are just meandering around with a drink. It's also a good opportunity for your guests to meet each other, and share an activity.
If it's for a funeral, I recommend you wait until the wake. It's not until then that people are more at ease, and willing to participate.
If you have an MC at your event, encourage them to announce that the tree is to be complete as soon as possible. This will help to make sure everyone has participated.
Once completed, simply put it away! Don't leave it out for display unless it's sealed in a frame. Young men and curious children can do silly things when left alone.
If you follow these tips, you'll end up with a fantastic guestbook ready to hang on the wall, and be enjoyed for many years to come.
