Doily Place Cards

These doily place cards are unlike any of its kind because they’re customized with ink color, font preference, and kraft paper. We love how these are large doilies (measuring 8″ in diameter) so they make a big statement at guests’ seats. They even fit perfectly in the center of a charger or large plate. (Outdoor wedding? Place them underneath a clear glass plate so they won’t budge and guests can still see them.)

I love the combination of white, kraft brown, and navy as shown in this wedding. The doily place cards and kraft favor boxes fit in beautifully, don’t you think?

We love this simple yet elegant design.

For a bridesmaid gift that is wrapped up in charm, wrap with kraft paper and twine. Hand-calligraph, add a locket wrapped around it and a small bouquet of flowers for added whimsy. What a beautiful gift! Not only is there a gift inside the wrapping, but there is the added gift of the locket and flowers plus the sentiment of having it all put together by you. Love it!
