Ideas for summer place cards

Place cards or place cards are mainly used when a certain seating arrangement is desired. But place cards are much more than just formal place binders. Depending on the festival and the occasion, table cards can be designed individually and give the banquet table a very personal, inviting touch. In addition to the classic place cards, nicely decorated bottles, glasses and other items are also suitable to show the guests the place. Today I will show you how you can make such table cards quickly and easily yourself.

1) Classic table cards

These classic table cards are made of handmade paper quickly and with little material.

You need the following materials:

  • handmade paper (10 x 12 cm)
  • Stamp alphabet
  • flowers
  • Washi tape

How to do it:

  1. Fold the handmade paper in half.
  2. Print the name with letter stamps.
  3. Attach small flowers with washi tape.

Place cards are a little more personal and inviting if a welcome greeting is added to the name. With the help of an embossing device , I printed and stuck the name and the words “Welcome” on it. Instead of washi tape, you can also use small wooden clips to attach the flowers.

2) wooden shingle as place cards

This place card made of a wooden shingle looks a little rustic but very natural.

How to do it:

  1. Stick the cake topper with spray adhesive.
  2. Wrap the cord around the shingle a few times.
  3. Tie a few flowers into a small bouquet and put them between the cords.
  4. Stamp the name with letter stamps.
