3 GREAT DECORATION IDEAS FOR ORIGINAL PLACE CARDS

The table is set, drinks and snacks are ready and - dingdong! - the doorbell is already ringing. Just quickly put down the last place card so that everyone knows where he or she can take a seat, and then the evening can begin. There are three great variations here that you should try to copy!

A nicely laid table and guests who chat lively: This is how a party should be. So that the people sitting next to each other also fit together, place cards are a good way to create a harmonious seating arrangement. The ushers are only for weddings or big rounds? Not entirely true, because the name badges can also be beautifully presented on a small scale.

Homemade variants can be adapted to the table decoration, are quickly tinkered with and really look great.

SCANDINAVIAN BEAUTIFUL WITH SLATE PANELS

Place cards in a Scandinavian look
Place cards for Scandi fans: On a slate with eucalyptus

Long tapered candles in a concrete stand and freshly scented eucalyptus: the table should be set bright and inviting, because you love the simple but elegant Scandinavian style. With a table decoration with elements made of wood, concrete, porcelain and fabric, dark slates create a suitable contrast.

Simply write the names of the guests on the tablets with white chalk. To make them look even more appealing, they can also be spruced up, for example with a strip of masking tape and a small twig in one of the
four corners.

The whole thing looks particularly harmonious when the branch can also be found in the rest of the decoration. Fresh eucalyptus smells nice, but artificial branches look fresh longer and can be used again and again. When everyone has found their place at the table, there is really only one thing left to do: toast the evening together!

The branches are attached to the slate with masking tape.
These place cards are really quick to make: Simply write your name on the slate and stick a branch of eucalyptus on it with masking tape.

Tip: If there are children among the guests, it is
best to leave the chalk lying around right away. The little ones then have something to do in between and can paint the tablets as they please.

COLORFUL UNICORN PARTY FUN

Unicorn fun for a child's birthday or baby shower.

There are no unicorns? But of course there is one here! And they are not only fun for a children's birthday party, but also at the baby shower, at the hen party or simply in a fun group of girls with friends. So, put on your party hats and throw confetti: we’re going to have a good party today!

For a quick DIY place card with a unicorn look, simply cut out colored paper, name it and punch a hole with the hole punch. And if it is already glittering and sparkling, then please everywhere: use glitter ribbon to tie and tie the name cards to the pendant. And after the party is before the party - at Christmas the unicorn shines in the guests' Christmas trees and inspires the imagination.

These unicorn cards can be made quickly.
Seat card and gift in one: your guests can of course take the trailer home with them. A nice souvenir of a successful evening.

Decoration tip: Christmas tree pendants are a great idea to
give your guests a personal gift. The selection is wonderfully large, colorful and funny: you either get the same tag or you can personalize the small gifts for each and every one of them.

TIP FOR THE EVENING: KICK-START CONVERSATIONS!

With place cards, every guest knows where they are sitting.
Who ate from my plate? None other than you, of course. After all, this is ensured by personalized place cards.

In order to loosen up the whole thing in a larger group, where the guests may not know each other very well or not at all, you can use a little trick: write a second name on the back of the place cards. After the main course, the menu is turned over and the round is reshuffled for dessert. So every guest gets a fresh place and conversation partner to match the dessert!
