Autumn-themed place cards

11 Nov

When putting in the effort to organise a dinner party, you want it to be as perfect as possible. You’ll find yourself planning all of the details; from that all-important menu, which plates to use, and, sometimes, the seating plan.

Place cards indicate where you would like your guests to sit, and can prove to be a helpful tool in controlling the overall atmosphere of your event. Not sure those two will get along? Just put their place cards on either end of the table – simple.

An autumn-themed night can help create a cosy vibe. Here are a few place card ideas based around the snug season:

1. Pinecone Place CardsImage

Autumn is a time of year that is usually associated with nature’s deep browns and burnt oranges. These pinecone place cards help create a rustic feel for the table. Simply pick up some pinecones and slot a named piece of card between the cone scales. It couldn’t be any easier.

2. Scissor Cut Autumn Leaves

These scissor cut autumn leaves are ideal for a subtle hint of the season. By using fabric, you have free reign over their colour, meaning your whole table setting can still match. Find out how to make them here.

3. Fallen Leaf Place Cards

The concept behind these fallen leaf place cards can leave your table looking simple, but beautiful. Collect dried leaves and carefully write your guests names with a metallic gel pen. The leaves can even be spray painted, if you desire another colour. Though, we feel that the natural look is always best. Simple, yet effective.
