Novel Place Cards


Attractive place cards are good sized paper dolls dressed in satin and tulle veil, and carrying a bride’s bouquet.  These are fastened to oblong paper standards so they can stand erect at each plate. Sometimes a figure of the groom is used for the girls, but the male costume is of a different period.  This will not be hard if period fashion books are found in a good library.

Another pretty idea is a big square of chiffon or thin lace tied into a bag with narrow ribbon and orange blossoms. Lay it open on a table filled with rose petals or rice to be thrown after the departing couple, then tie the ends so they drop in four points.  The name of the guest can be stuck in the top of these folds.

Simple cards, painted with orange blossoms or other appropriate flowers can have tied to them charms of tiny silver wedding bells or bride slippers.
