- Wedding: July 2011
So this is my second attempt because wedding bee deleted my well typed out plan! ERGH.
If you are getting married at the beach, a cute idea for escort cards and placecards is to make a little origami boat for each place setting and then make a little toothpick flag for the escort card. Put a name and table number on the flag and guests will take their flag to their boat and TA-DA! Instantly cute. Folding an origami boat is easy – I attached the instructions. My boats are being made out of old maps and the paper is just thick enough to be sturdy without being difficult to fold. The flags can be printed on the attached file and you can glue a toothpick into the flag. I cut a small hole at the top of the boat and the toothpick fits right down inside. I am not sure how I will display the escort “flags” but someone suggested filling a wooden tray with sand and sticking them down in the sand. If anyone has another cute idea, please post a comment 🙂
I’ll put up the pictures I took of mine when I get them uploaded.
