Can I use favor bags as placecards?

I personally think that paper pags would look odd and take up a lot of space on the tables - and that it creates a lot of additional waste. Most people probably aren't going to keep the paper bag or tissure paper.
An alternative suggestion is maybe rolling the pashminas, and putting a thin paper strip (about 1-2 inches wide) around them with the persons name and table number - that also cuts down on how much extra stuff you have to bring with you - no paper bags or tissue paper!! And depending on what you get for the guys - you may be able to do something similar with tags or something.

I will definitely be rethinking what I'm using as my placecards.

What kind of popped in my head was that instead of having a regular seating chart, which it sounds like maybe you're trying to avoid, you could always have a table set up near the front of your reception area with groupings of your gifts arranged similar to the setup of your tables. So if you had six tables (arranged like they would look on a dice for example) then you could do the same with your gifts, and alternate the rolled pashminas with the guys gifts surrounding a table number.
I definitely think you could do a lot of really neat and creative things with this though so don't give up! I think it would be important for me to have my guests really appreciate all the details. So if that means separating the gifts from the tables completely, or just downsizing them a little so that they don't overwhelm the dinner tables then go for it!

I'll just go with traditional placecards and put the gift bags on their seat or give it out later. Oh decisions decisions...

Favor #1 is a tiny box filled with sample size typical candies of PR. On the label we decided to place the name and the table number these will be at the entrance of the reception.
Favor #2 will be located at the table with the Thank You note

Does it sound weird?
