Well, now that we've moved onto the fun-but-not-necessary paper products I figured we would just jump all in with Place Cards as well! Please note I'm probably not using the words "place cards" correctly, as this is sort of a fun hybrid. So it's really more of a place-escort-park-your-butt-card.
What I did first was find a template online for these silly little things. Wouldn't you know it, Martha has a template! Why wouldn't she?
Anyway, we replaced the ribbon in the template with the fun Spanish tile style border from our Table Numbers. Take a look at round one...
The idea was to make the names really stand out, while integrating the table number seamlessly into the design. I think my MoH did a FABULOUS job! Next up to pick a font that helps that name stand out very well. Which do you think stands out?
They're all really pretty fonts, but in the end we went with the Chancelleresca because it was the perfect blend of calligraphy, bold design, and frankly ease of finding. Plus who doesn't adore those flourishes? We ended up printing 6 to page and then cut them all out. Now it's just about folding them, and bagging them for the wedding! PHEW!
Did you take on any fun/un-necessary projects as you got closer to your date?
