Play Like Talblesetting: The Place Cards...

Just playing around with ideas for place cards...at my "play like" dinner party...



The pretend meal will host the eight board members. It may be too hard to write their whole title on the chalkboard...so maybe just number the place and type their name on an old piece of paper.


An old door nob makes for a unique vase or place card holder...perfect tone for our neutral color scheme...and our theme, "An exemplary stroll stroll through winter"...memories old and new.


The plates of our old school were made in 1961.

  We also have these  whimsical little rust covered benches...this would be a good place to put their names.

We've cut,dyed, baked, and glued hundreds of these...Thankfully, the little ones have helped us!

Just because we are going with neutrals found in a winter wonderland, never fear their will be plenty of textures and bling!
If any of you have ever been on a snow covered mountain, you know it is quite Merry and Brite!



It needs a little "fluffing", 
but I'm liking the general idea...

And I'd love for you to see it in person!!!
Saturday, December 4th, 
11:00 ~ 4:00
Y'all Come, I'd love to see you!
 
May all your Christmases be white,
Lezlee

Some plate numbers are specials and personals. I want to know about different types of
number plates of vehicles. I hope your blog will be very helpful for me in this purpose.
