Is there a clever idea out there I'm not aware of?  Luncheon wedding.

Do you have a theme?

Some cure I deqs I've seen are:

A little glob (rock ?) of clay with a wire pushed in. a coil at the top of the wire to hold seating card (later to be used as a picture or note holder)

Same idea with the wire the base being a tiny clay pot with  grass growing in it. Add a tiny lil pick with a flower.

A piece of fruit with a long thin strip of paper coiled at one end the coil wrapped around  the stem of the fruit. Name & table info on paper.

Oh, but it's October 8th and the colors will be fall colors...

Well, then, what about building on DrewsUSAgirl's idea and using fake leaves from a craft store.  I think you can get them cheap at Michael's or Joanne's or some such place.  Then writing information on them?

That's a cool idea but I think I'd have to anchor them somehow - the cards will be on a table in a hallway and I would hate to think of people's names flying everywhere!

how about writing the names on pretty river rocks in gold ink?

or, cutting a slit in the top of a champagne cork and wedging the place card in there.

i like the fruit idea. . .cute, simple, and CHEAP.  you could even use those tiny pumpkins, since it's fall and all.

one thing i saw, i think on martha stewart, was draping a folded strip of paper (with the ends curled) on the rim of a champagne glass. . .the person's name printed on the paper, of course.  that way they have their toasting flute already with them.


You got no fear of the underdog. . .that's why you will not survive!

PHOTOGRAPHY - It's what I do, and I'm pretty darn good.

or make a tree out of branches, cut out some paper leaves (they probably sell these precut) and hnag from the tree.

One idea I just thought of - get small glass bottles with corks - cut a slit in the cork to hold the place card, and then fill the bottle with a candy and a message saying thanks for sharing our day, etc.

For my rehearsal dinner (wedding was sort of garden-themed) I made mini-topiaries.  I took small clay pots painted with a mixture of craft paint and baby powder to give a "globbed on" effect.  I wanted it to look like moss and the baby powder caused the paint to clump in random places.  I then took small styrofoam balls and glued real sheet moss.  A wooden stick was stuck in the ball and glued to the pot.  We packed the pot with shredded paper and topped it off with small river rocks.  Each person's name was printed on cardstock and cut out and propped on the pot.  It was nice that each person could take their's home although I still have a lot left over.  I'll try to find a picture to post since my description is not that great.
