Place card holder ideas

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need some ideas for place card holders! My colours are red and black and while I like the starfish idea, I am not sure that it will go with the theme.

Any ideas??

Because my ethnicity is mostly chinese, and my fiance's is mostly polish, we have a pair of wooden chopsticks with a name tag with the polish eagle on them as our place card holders! I wonder if anyone will "get" the joke. lol I think you could use almost anything for a place card holder.

 

I like the idea I've seen of the mini maracas with a name tag.

 

What's your theme?

My initial vision for our destination wedding, i invisioned: the beach, the water, the sand. nothing compares to that decoration. so i wanted ambiance.. So we're doing candles.. and lots of them!!

I'm using votive candles to double as placecards and decoration for the guest tables. I'm going to print their name on vellum and wrap it around the votive holders.

To use as escort cards, at the sign in table i purchased mini maraca's and i'll attach their name and table # to it.. I didn't feel safe having my guest walk around with lit candles to their tables. Knowing my luck, someone will light one of my aunt's hair on fire!

Mullette, the hair of fire bit was funny! The candles as place cards idea is ingenious (minus the hair on fire part of-course).

We're doing photo coasters as our wedding favour and doubling them as place cards. I'm printing up our guests names in a boarder and starfish graphic from our invites and sticking them in the coaster.

What about doing something like this but incorporating black and red on the cards. I think it would look super chic!

I think that I'm going to do something like this but with umbrellas that are fuschia and lime green:

Both ideas are from Martha Stewart.

OMG Mel I love those placesettings with the shells.

 

Jaimem I think you can use any idea that you like, just incorpoarte your colours onto the cards. You could use bright white starfish with red tags and names embossed in black. Or red ribbon on the white starfish with tags in black and white...

We purchased large scallop shells (like you use for baking) and are putting the guests names on the inside of them - we think it will look very elegant and are going to stand them up in shallow sandboxs at the sign in table. I like the mini marachi idea too!
