Friends daughter got married last Monday night. We are Orthodox Jews and for 7 days the bride and groom, family and close friends celebrate by having a meal a day to give 7 blessings (brachos) to the couple each day. One of the two sheva brachos I was involved one of my jobs was the place cards.

Her wedding colors were baby blue, purple and silver. So using white fabric I cut hearts (26) with my pining shears. Sewed the two pieces together with blue thread. Added a silver bow to the top. Printed out the words "mazel tov" (good luck/congratulations) in blue and wrote in calligraphy the names.

Pretty pleased with how they turned out. All I got though were pics with my cell. Not as clear as I would like, but you get the idea. Also they were placed between the tines of the forks at each place.







Thanks for looking! Smiley Any comments or questions are welcome.
