Cute and clever cards

Ten top tips for perfectly pretty place cards

Place cards – the much-overlooked member of the wedding stationery family. But showing someone where they are to sit at your wedding breakfast is really quite important and can be a super fun part of the day. Place cards can add so much to the tablescape and infuse the setting with another touch of your chosen theme or colour. You can even combine it with a cute favour for guests to take away. Instead of breezing over the place card, why not embrace it?! We’ve collected a few of our very favourite ideas to add a touch of luxury to your guests’ place settings.

1. Rustic wood

Clean and simple, perfect for a boho themed wedding. Simple ink stamped names stand out really well. Perfect for a natural tablescape with greenery and wildflowers.

Laser engraved swizzle sticks to direct your guests to their table and a glass of bubbles to start the celebrations! Perfect!

3. Gorgeous geode

We adore this sliced, gilded geode. Just a perfect touch of luxury to the table. Match with pale colours and gilded plate edges.

4. An apple a day…

Give your guests a fun, healthy treat and add their place card to an apple! The ‘leaves’ will fit perfectly with a white and green palette and makes a fun, super simple and visually effective display.

9. Super sweet

Combine the napkin holder and place card with a ribbon or tag, or even a candy necklace. Not just for kids, this would make a really gorgeous tablescape teamed with plain white linen and simple florals.

We adore these personalised shells. Such a clever idea, and would add a pop of colour to white table linens. Polished to perfection, these really do bring a touch of luxury.
