There are also a great way to add yet another personal touch to your special day; making them unique as possible.
Many of the table place card designs are made to stand up; however, there are also plenty of designs that are flat. The issue with these is how exactly can you display them? After all you need to make sure that you guests can see them as they walk around the table, else they are pointless making them.
Want to know how to make sure that your guests can see the table place cards? Here are some of the tricks to show you how to display printed flat table place cards.
Toothpick and fruit
If you want to add some colour and decoration to your table then you can use your flat table place cards to brighten things up. You can display them easily by sticking a toothpick into a piece of hard fruit (such as an apple or orange) and then tape the place card to the toothpick.
Attach them to corks
Another great way to stand up your table place cards is to pop them into corks. You will need to collect quite a few corks in order to do this, which can take time, however, it is easy to do once you have them all. You only need to slice a line through half of each cork, and then you can slide a flat place card into the slot.
Tie them on with ribbon
If you have wine glasses on the table then you can easily attach your flat place card to them with ribbon. Punch a hole into the table place card and then thread some brightly coloured ribbon through the hole. You can then use the ribbon to tie the card onto the glass.
Peg them on
Carrying on with the idea of attaching the place cards to the glass, another great idea is to glue a small wooden peg to the back of the place card, and then use this to attach it to the glass. This is great fun and is relatively cheap and easy to do too.
Who doesn’t love cupcakes? We know that we do! So, why not combine cupcakes with table decorations and give each guest their very own cupcake in their place? Their name can be attached to a stick that is inserted into the cupcake which means that they are not only easy to see, but also that your guests get a tasty treat too.
As you can see, a flat table place card doesn’t have to mean a boring place card. There are so many inventive ways that you can display them and make sure that your guests know exactly where they are sitting and have something special to keep after the big day.
