    So my fiance and I have been trying to figure out a way to do something creative with our place cards and my mom came up with the idea of embroidering (sp) everyone's name of their napkin and having those serve as place cards. I love the idea. We're having a white and blue theme and the napkins are this really deep blue color. We bought the fabric, i cut out 54-18x18 squares and my mom will have to edge them and embroider everyone's name in white. She has one of those sewing machines that you have to type in the name and it does everything itself. I can't wait to see how that turns out, plus since its fabric, its not going to take too much space in our baggage. We're debating adding our logo, but i think that might be too much. Just wanted to share the idea, i'll post pictures when the first batch of napkins is done.

    *UPDATE:* My mom finished the majority of the napkins and I finally have pictures. We wanted to use white thread at first, but thought it would be too bright, so we found a similar shade of blue. I think it turned out great, so excited for the guests to see them.
