Cute & Unique Placecard Holders

>> Wednesday, February 11, 2009


When it came to placecards, I had no idea of what I was going to do. I wanted to have a unique set-up something that went with our weddings but has also not been seen over and over. I searched and searched and finally came across these cuties on Kate Aspen. They are pieces of dry bamboo, with a slit cut in to hold the cards. I LOVE them, so very much. Because my FH is Thai, we wanted to incorporate a small part of his Thai background into our wedding. We will be adding touches of bamboo both dry and fresh to our floral arrangements. And get this it goes with the Champagne, Chocolate and Green very well because the dry bamboo is champagne in color and of course the fresh bamboo is green, sweet! My MIL has tons of land here in the country and grows bamboo all over so I will not have to buy any and I have begun the drying out process so that I can make my own placecard holders. They can serve as a favor to our guests as well because they can take them home and put a picture in the holder. How cute is that! This is also very eco-friendly! The only issue with bamboo is that it splits when you cut it so you have to be very careful while cutting it. This weekend I am doing a couple of trial cuts to see how they come out. I will take pics if they come out ok.

Those are adorable!!!! That is neat how you will be able to incorporate the place card holders with your FH's Thai background. Very creative.

The bamboo placecard holders are really nice - unique appearance and great because they bring in your finace's background. Happy Planning!
