It’s fall y’all and we’re playing with some pretty fall grasses from FiftyFlowers.com today! We’ve created four gorgeous new exclusive printable design files that you can now buy in our shop for only $2.99 and they’re editable, just add your guests’ info and print. There are many ways you can embellish these cards with foliage and we’re sharing four ideas below. We’ve also added metallic foil to some of the cards which you should totally do, and here’s how to do it if you don’t know how!

Seating vs. Escort

Escort cards are given to your guests as they enter your reception. They have their name and table number on them. Seating cards are placed at each place setting to tell the guest which seat is reserved for them. Both the darling files we’re sharing today have one card design with a space for the table number and one without. Use them both, or use just one!

Mini Clothespins

The first way you can add foliage to these darling cards is by simply clipping it on the side using mini clothespins!

The second way you can add foliage to these cards is by hole punching the top and bottom and inserting the grass through the holes!
