Your escort or seating card display presents a wonderful opportunity to personalize your celebration where guests naturally congregate. Typically, table number cards are stuffed into envelopes personalized with guests’ names, or tented cards are calligraphed with names and table assignments on the front.
Add a personal touch to the cards and the table set up by taking cues from your invitation design, the reception location, the season, or your personalities and give guests something to talk about during cocktails!
The possibilities for the perfect seating card display are endless, the outcome, truly memorable!
Colorful hand-scripted cards displayed on a dramatic, decorative paper-covered magnet board will help guests find their seats with style. Organize escort cards alphabetically by last name in neat rows with red silk dupioni button magnets.
If you are handy with a sewing machine, consider making a silk pocket banner to hold the cards. Or take the concept a step further and create canvas boat sales for a junk shop boat. It may not be sea worthy, but your guests will be raving about it long after the celebration has passed!
How about creating pocket stands from paper and tucking your seating cards inside?
Or, for an outdoor wedding, clothespin cards to an acorn swag or grommet dragonfly shaped cards to picnic fabric and pin them to a clothesline.
Short on time? Add a quick embellishment such as paper flowers to a tented card and line them up on a table covered in moss or grass. Or add a fish graphic and perch atop a glass table filled with shells.
Simply change the shape of your escort cards to a circle, square or tall rectangle adding a graphic flourish or rhinestone and feather embellishment to create visual interest.
If you love shabby chic or vintage finds, hinge 2 salvage barn doors together and hang escort cards from them using aged brass upholstery tacks.
Nautical themed wedding? Attach circle shaped cards inside working brass compasses. They are the perfect display stand and double as a unique and useful favor.
