Emma here and if you follow our Twitter, you know it’s been taking every fiber of my being to NOT start playing Christmas music yet. This year is Baby Andrew’s first Christmas and I just can’t wait to fill the house with the smell of sugar cookies, play this album on constant repeat, and string lights on the tree to show him the magical holiday. It’s only the first week of November and we’re already seeing Christmas trimmings at nearly every store, so I guess it’s never too early to prepare. Right? ;) When I spotted these mini nutcracker place card holders (which can multi-task as favors, too) I could not wait to share them with you.

Nutcracker Place Card Holders

They’re perfect for Christmas themed weddings, Holiday parties, or for your own stash of holiday decor.

These nutcrackers are so stinking cute.

Are They Just Like the Real Thing?

They sure are! They even have moveable parts, according to the item description.

The Details

These hand-painted wood figures feature faux fur trim and stand at attention at each guests’ place setting. Comes in the assorted colors, as shown. Colors can not be separated. Each nutcracker includes glue dot to affix the white, blank place card to nutcracker head; as there is not a slit for place card.

Good morning, lovelies! I spotted this amazing tablescape and had to share it… immediately. This vintage inspired tablescape would be perfect for either a bridal shower or a wedding. I love the pop of lavender – both the color and the sprig placed on the plate – and the lace ties the vintage look together perfectly. The metal place ‘cards’ are my favorite touch, and since it would take plenty of bridehours to make 100+ metal place ‘cards’, I think this works best for the bride and groom’s seats. This entire vintage inspired tablescape is gorgeous and one of my favorites to date. Styled by The Stylish Soiree, captured by Love Life Studios and spotted via Style Me Pretty.

Hello, loves! Today we’re talking about wedding calligraphy – the fanciful art of writing – which can be applied across your entire wedding spectrum. Hiring a wedding calligrapher may sound like a luxury request, but it can be affordable AND make a world of a difference in the overall look and quality of your wedding. I am a self-proclaimed handwriting nerd, which all began when my mom saw my hurried handwriting in 3rd grade, sat me down at her desk, and taught me to write more legibly. Ever since, I’ve developed a knack for pretty writing, calligraphy, and design, realizing that taking a little extra time and patience really does go a long way. If you need someone to give you a helping hand and turn your wedding stationery into works of art, we’re here to help! We’ve located the top twelve wedding calligraphy ideas by handmade artisans who are skilled in the craft and ready to create a personalized suite for your big day. Read on to be inspired…
