Gone are the days when a simple chart would lead you to your seat at a wedding. Beautiful calligraphy cards are one way to go, but creating a display can bring your reception to a whole new level. And I’m not one for putting effort into projects that get thrown away, so I crafted up a fun escort card display that adds that wow factor, but can also get taken home and displayed as decor! And while you’re at it, bring over a welcome cocktail along with your guest book and make this table a one stop shop. –Lauren
– large cork board(s)
– small glass bottles
– faux leaves + fresh flowers
– hot glue gun
Step 1. Arrange your bottles on the board and attach with a small dot of hot glue.
Step 2. Drill holes on either side of the bottle all the way through the board. If your bottles do not have a lip on the top, you might want to consider adding more holes down the base of the bottle to ensure they are secure.
Step 3. Insert wire through the front of the board and around the bottle. Pull tightly on the back and twist the wire to secure each bottle.
Step 4. Create your escort cards by writing each guests name on a leaf – real or faux!
Step 5. Fill all of the bottles with water, add a fresh flower to each and top of with the escort “cards”!
Once all the guests have taken their cards, there is still a beautiful display left to look at!
