I am beginning to work on DIY projects, and I've been thinking heavily about card boxes. In particular, the security of a card box in my reception venue (Varsity Theater).
When we toured the venue, it was set up for a wedding, with the gift table near the front entrance (the front entrance is along 4th Street in Dinkytown, across the street from the Library Bar... quite a bit of foot traffic on a Saturday night in October). I don't really worry about someone walking in and taking our gifts, but the card box seems like something someone might nab. (I don't think there is front-door security... and if there is, it's not like a stranger needs to show an invite for admission.)
First I considered using The Perfect Card Box because it has a lock, but seriously? It's made of wood. It's not like a hammer wouldn't shatter the thing.
Then I thought about doing one of those giant boxes - the three-level tower of gifts type of boxes - because it would be really conspicuous to walk out the door carrying one of those.
Then I thought about moving the gift table to the interior of the venue (see my totally sweet map below) so that my DOC will be able to keep an eye on it.
What do you think? Does anyone have any ideas for me? Am I being paranoid? Photo: Studio 306
