Where Do I Sit?

When my friend Gretchen was getting married - we went back and forth on a bunch of place card (also known as escort card) ideas. I mean, if you're going to be bossy and tell people where to sit then you might as well do it in a manner that is aesthetically pleasing. Here are a few ideas that I thought were cute.

This looks like it was a corkboard covered in fabric and the tags are pinned on. The number are probably stamped on.

Great for an outdoor wedding with a rustic, country feel.

You will need someone who is handy with a saw and lot's of branches for this. What's up with all of the hockey players in the background?

Destination Beach Wedding.

Could you imagine cookies used as escort cards at a wedding? If you have the time and patience - kudos to you! This would be cute for a small party though like a bridal shower or baby shower.

I thought this was cute idea that wouldn't require too much work. Just a couple of planter boxes and plants. I liked it so much I decided to show 2 pictures.

Okay, this is one of my favorites. Perfect for a modern zen event.

Make sure it's not a windy day!

Another favorite that earned 2 pictures. Something like this was shown on Martha Stewart Wedding from the Spring 2005 Magazine.

And here I leave you with maybe the most practical and doable idea. All you need is rice, fabric and a low box. You can even dye the rice to color you want or just buy some aquarium gravel (that come in so many fun bright colors). I got this picture from a Knot Bio and I can't remember who. So if this is you - tell me!

All of these pictures were found on Flikr (minus the rice one). A great place to get ideas!
