I was recently invited to an open house for my second cousin at a hall and have not seen him since he was 6 and when I got there I noticed alot of reletives that I knew but when I went into the hall the party was for someone else that my reletives knew and I had already place the gift card inside the box before I noticed that the decoration had the other persons name on them!! I am so embaraced about the whole thing. This happened this past weekend. The party that I was invited to was in a tent on the back side of the hall. I ended up going to the store and getting another card and placing money in it. Then to top it off my cousin called this morning and said that the other party guest of honor was at his house and wanted to talk to me. He siad that he received the check and was wondering who it was from. I said it was from me and my husband for my second cousins gift and that I had placed it in the box without knowing. He said that I was not the only one he had 6 cards from other people!! He is going to send it back to me and I told him I would send out one with his name on it. hugs

lol that sounds like something I would have done. I had a feeling even before getting to the end of your post that you weren't the only one that had made that mistake. I think it is nice that you are sending him a check even though you didn't know him.
