Part 2: Place Card Holders

by ForestCandleStudio

The wedding reception is your grand party – for toasting the two of you, sharing food and drink with family and friends, and general merry-making all around. Such a party usually requires that you, the host, decide who should sit next to whom, to bring new and old friends together in the best way possible.

Place cards make it easy for your guests to know where you want them to sit. So why not choose place card holders that add to your theme and also make fabulous favors for your guests to take home? Planning your table decor items to do double-duty is eco-friendly and saves you time and money 🙂

To help you get started finding just the right place card holders, here are some delightful ones I found on Etsy. After the wedding, your guests can use these to hold photos, notes, etc., or as paperweights or decorative objects to display on a shelf or table. What a wonderful way to say thank you to your guests for being part of your special day!

  1. Such amazing finds you got there. The Decadent Designs frame is simply BEAUTIFUL.

  2. Thank you so much for your kindness in featuring my sparrow place card holders! It was a very nice surprise. :^) I’ve had a few pirate parties over the years, and have “assigned” each party-goer their own special whimsical pirate name, according to their general character in life. These place cards were among my favorites!

    I do hope the other shopkeepers you took the time to feature find joy in your doing so! It was fun taking a peek into those shops, as well as seeing your amazingly beautiful beeswax floral candle sets…absolutely LOVERLY!

    Blessings to you and yours!
    With Kind Regards,
