In keeping with our wedding theme of the Adirondack woods, and our goal of having as many eco-friendly components to our wedding as possible, I went in search of place card holders. I looked at some websites and in some craft stores, but I couldn't really find anything I liked that really spoke to me. We discussed the idea of little Adirondack chairs, but all the ones I could find were white and looked like they belonged on a beach rather than at a cabin. Inevitably I turned to Etsy, because it seems that no matter how hard I try to look in other places first, I always end up back here. I'm glad I did, because I found the most awesome place card holders from This Fine Day.
They are sawed chunks of branches from a fallen tree, with slits carved in to hold the place cards. I don't think I could have found something more "Adirondack woods" or "eco-friendly" if I tried! I intend to make our place cards out of recycled card stock, and include a note on the back encouraging our guests to reuse the wood for something else in their home. We plan to use any extras that we have as photo holders around our house. If we have a lot left over, we might even let our gerbils chew on a few.
I wish computers had smell-o-vision,
because opening this box was like stepping into summer...
