doilies : make great place cards
A clever couple I worked with recently chose to have their place cards written on various sized doilies. The doilies were then placed on top of the plates at the each place setting. I haven't seen the photos from the wedding yet, but I can imagine how great it must have looked!
You might remember the envelopes for this couple as well, which kicked off a new font using a manuscript style writing with splattered ink.
