DIY Bread Loaf Place Cards

Posted April 18, 2011 | 6 Comments

DIY bread loaf place cards are a unique, easy-to-do idea. Invite guests to have a seat and enjoy a scrumptious serving of bread before dinner is officially served. Be sure to have plenty of olive oil and butter ready! This beautifully styled wedding via Joy Thigpen (photography: Jose Villa) illustrates the look:

It’s easy to do-it-yourself. Gather the following supplies…

1. Write guest name onto kraft tag using the white calligraphy marker pen.
2. String bakers twine through the kraft tag.
3. Wrap twine and tag a few times around the loaf of bread, securing it with a knot or bow. Make sure tag is easily visible from the top.
4. Place loaf at each place setting. Enjoy!

Love, love, love. Use your favorite tried-and-true artisan breads from a local bakery in a variety of flavors – mmmmmm. :)

Happy Planning!

    This is adorable and so clever. Place cards combined into something for the guest to eat is brilliant.

    Any time you can incorporate good food into your table decor {and have it double as a place card}, it provides such a fun and creative feeling. Great post!

    I love this idea!! I’ve seen it before! You have the bread as the place card and you then serve cheeses on a board and guests can munch on them!
