Are you tired of the same ole’ standard table seating cards? I know I am! I’ve rounded up some new, fresh and “not so boring” ideas for you courtesy of Martha Stewart. Thank-you Martha!
Seating Cards in a bottle – This idea is not only clever, it is inexpensive and ideal for a beach-destination wedding.
Shell Seating-Card Holders – Another perfect idea for a wedding by the ocean, these scallop shells clasp table designations as if bearing treasures from the sea. Guests pull out their cards to discover their table numbers, which are hidden behind the shells.
Parasol Seating Cards – Ok I am in love with these. Why because they are inexpensive, fun, and cheerful and a perfect tie-in to any summer themed event.
Flowers and Seating Card – How’s this for a touch of personal style?! Adorn each seat with beautiful flowers and label with the guest’s name.
Refreshing Escort Drinks – Welcome guests to a spring or summer outdoor reception with refreshing drinks that are tagged with their table numbers. Two words: LOVE IT!
Fresh & Natural… add a pine cone to the place card!
Wine Cork place card; wonderful idea for a wedding at a wine estate /vineyard.
I JUST LOVE THIS IDEA! Add a playful & fun twist to your guests’ tables and make a Cootie Catcher (fortune teller game) as your place cards. This is a great Ice-breaker for your guests sitting on the same table.
SWEET & SIMPLE! Make a presentation board out of miniature envelopes with guests’ names on them and insert ticket with table # on the inside.
Place card & favor in one! Another one of my fave’s; add the card to a keepsake gift for your invited guests to take home with them.
So pretty – Butterfly die-cut place card – perfect for a Spring or Summer event/reception.
And this gets my vote for the most outgoing table cards – table cards featuring a fun photo of the bride and groom. You can use different poses for each number. They’re great for an informal wedding, rehearsal dinner, or shower.
