2009 was the year to do something different with your place card displays! Each and every client of mine who chose assigned seating was looking to do something unique to direct their guests to their tables. From peaches picked off of a tree to a crystal wall with place cards attached and an old re-purposed shutter, we created some really cool displays! My favorite? The old shutter, which was pretty much junk when I picked it up at an antique store. After some restoration, paint and sprucing up with a crystal doorknob and floral embellishments, it was definitely chic and unique! The best part? I am now using it for Christmas cards..super fun!
