Creative Place Card Tables - Share your Ideas!

This rainy, windy, crazy weather has me stuck in the office today so I figured I would blog a little.  Mary and I have been trying to get really creative lately and come up with new and different ideas.  We like each and every wedding we do to be unique; so we end up spending a lot of time browsing over wedding magazines and reading online blogs.  This past year we have seen a lot of interest from brides on making their place card table stand out from the rest...an idea we love.  The seating card table is the first thing your guests will see when they enter your reception, so it is important that is set the mood and tone for the party to follow.  Here are a few place card tables we have done and some other ideas I found online that I love...hope you enjoy!

This is Nichole and Rob's weddingthat we did last year.  We used mason jars to hold manzanita branches which we connected with twine and hung the seating cards with clothes pins. So cute!

For Taralynn's weddingwe still used the manzanita branches but switched it up by putting them in black vases and placing the seating cards (which were little birds!) right in the branches.  I LOVED this!

Tina and Jeremy used green as the accent color in their wedding so to make their place card table really pop we used flats of wheat grass to place the cards on.  Some fresh flowers 'growing' out of the grass sealed the deal :)  Check out the soil...you can actually see the roots, so cool!

This is Mary's wedding :) Since her hubby is a sod farmer we, of course, had to use sod!  We added a some daisies to complete the look.

This is a wedding we just did this past January (sneak peek - more pics to follow!).  We used these GORGEOUS luminaries as the centerpiece of the place card table, filled with gold manzanita branches, hanging crystals, and fresh flowers.  Pink mercury votives and a golden birdcage (to hold cards!) finished the table.

Craspedia is all the rage with brides now and I fell in love with this.  Photo courtesy of Style Me Pretty.

I am all about incorporating fresh fruit with flowers.  Check out these green apples, the guests names and table numbers are printed on the little leaf cutouts that are pinned onto the apples.  Adorable!  Photo courtesy of Style Me Pretty.
