Finding your place

An hour before our guests arrived, we realized that we probably should have made seating designations. Even with just twelve people, I think it goes a little more smoothly if people don't have to try to figure out where they should sit.

D made these little name cards to tuck into the napkins and I love that they seem to play off our china pattern a bit, with the handfeel of the font echoing the weave on our plates.

He says that was unintentional. Whatevs.

  8. Love that design! I would definitely say place cards are a necessity + they truly give a set table a very polished look.

  9. Those are really pretty! I didn't do name cards for Thanksgiving this year because there were only 8 of us, but definitely for Christmas! Cute way to show people where to go!

  11. @ Laura - Yay! So happy you enjoyed them.

    @ Ashley - The font is called Strangelove. It's a really nice one - we wanted to work it into our wedding invitations but it didn't happen.
