DIY Decorating Idea for a Casual Event



Remember a few weeks ago when http://www.onewed.com/blog/savvy-scoop/2009/06/09/its-jaime-thing-wedding-color-palettes-inspired-sexy-paint-colors> Jamie pointed us toward paint cards as a way to get inspiration for wedding colors? In http://www.realsimple.com>Real Simple, one of this month’s “New uses for old things” has an idea for folding the paint cards over and making place cards out of them. I tried it this weekend for a family brunch, and it really brightened up the table. Obviously, not the way to go for a formal event, but it could be a fun touch for a rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, or bridesmaid lunch, especially if you use variations of your wedding colors.

If you're wondering why you'd need place cards for a casual event, they can be a HUGE help for helping guests who are bad with names, or those who don't know too many people. If you have a lot of single people coming to the rehearsal dinner, different colored place cards can be a good conversation starter. If you're feeling generous and want to share the love, create an ice-breaking game where people have to find a card that matches theirs. Make sure to "match" any singles that you think would appreciate it!
