I can be a staunch traditionalist at times, and other times I can be a rebel. When it came to table assignments for the wedding, I just wasn't too jazzed about the individual seating cards and decided to go for table assignments instead. I got a couple of raised eyebrows, including one from the coordinator at the venue, discouraging me since people would have to look at ten tables to find themselves. My feeling was maybe, maybe not....don't the odds suggest that you may find yourself before the tenth table?, and after all, the guests have the entire cocktail hour to casually find where they are sitting. Anyway.....I had a design in my mind and I couldn't be swayed on this one!
You will have to imagine, a banquet table with a lovely tablecloth and some candlelight to add some ambiance versus my basement carpet, and it will look absolutely awesome!
I found the clip art in my many travels through the internet for free clip art, then used one of my favorite fonts that I found on dafont.com and by way of a text box in Microsoft word, I typed the table numbers within the oval.
The paper is just a simple buff colored scrapbook paper and I burned the edges the old fashioned way, over a candle. I did find that the paper didn't burn like I remembered from some crafts I've done ages ago (probably something with the way paper is more eco-friendly these days). So after I had glued the pages to the mat board, I painted some of the edges with some brown paint.
I have to thank my brother-in-law Steve for providing the antlers for me. This project turned out to be everything I imagined and more!!
