Make Sure Everything's In "Place"

(escort card design by Sarah Drake Design)

I love escort/place cards and nowadays there are countless unique ideas for displaying them in the most special ways. Some arrange their cards in various shapes amidst flickering votive candles or hang their cards from the branches of Manzanita trees, while others invest in holders that make a bold statement. If considering escort/place card holders, remember to keep these impressive styles for various themes in mind...

A symbol of friendship and long life in many cultures, bamboo brings an exotic touch to any wedding celebration. You'll be amazed at how something so light and delicate can carry so much meaning to your guests.

A decorative gift for your guests to take home and use as photo holders, these diminutive replicas of a grand piano are especially adorable for brides/grooms who are pianists.

With every realistic detail, this picturesque replica is a charming place card holder.  The hanging lantern swings with the slightest touch, as the metal lamp post proudly displays your guest's name on the scrolled placard that looks like a street sign.  New Orleans natives should definitely consider.

These pretty trays stand on a base of three gold rounds with their collars embellished with swirls of shells. Ideal for a beach-inspired wedding.

Mini Wooden Sailboat Place Card Holders
Each mini replica sailboat serves as a place card holder or table decoration for a nautical themed wedding. Rest a place card on the deck of the boat or tie one to the mast to create your own unique presentation.

Petite Jeune Bridal Gown Place Card Holders
Each is made of satin fabric with an empire waist, embellished with white, silver and glass beads.  The wire holder is made of chrome and will not tarnish.

Folding Beach Chair Place Card Holders
Each blue and white striped chair is a tiny vision of seaside relaxation complete with white wood folding frame.  Add custom printed beach-themed place cards to complete the look and prop a custom surfboard cookie next to each!

"Park Place" Vintage Park Bench Place Card Holders
Imagine these quaint place card holders greeting guests at your garden wedding. These charming, vintage benches with scroll design and brushed antique-gold finish are crafted from resin and metal.

“Recipe for Love” Wooden Rolling Pin Place Card Holders
Marrying a cook?  Invite guests to share their secret ingredients for a long and happy marriage with these perfectly practical rolling-pin place card/recipe card holders. The newlyweds get sage advice, and the guests go home with a cute recipe-card holder!

"Awakened to Love" Buddha Place Card Holders
He's a symbol of enlightenment and awakening - the red, resin Buddha is finely detailed, bearing golden "gifts" in each hand and wearing a golden, beaded necklace. His raised arms hold a place card or a favorite photo.
