I’ve been FINIALLY starting to get serious about wedding planning 5 months to go!
I need help on escort cards & table numbers! We are doing Christmas theme (no snowflakes!) Our center pieces will be 4 cylinder vases 2 with pine & pine cones 2 with holly (I think) filled with water and a floating candle!
For the escort cards I want something kinda cheap that I can DIY easily. Our favors are sugar cookies and we are going to get personalized ribbon to tie a cello bag. I had originally wanted to combind the favors with the escort cards but the lady at the venue said not to 🙁
A few examples I liked
Something like this but MUCH smaller
Or maybe something with just a bow?
And I have NO IDEA what to do for table numbers I just now i dont want plain ones!

I really like the pine cones! And since you your reception is in November you can always take a few walks around the neighborhood or park and grab some pine cones ala mother nature instead of buying them:) Here are some picutes I found that you might like:
^ I would hot glue the card to the cone so it doesn’t fall off:)
^ This would be pretty and still have the pine cones, but would take up less space on the actual guest tables!
^ This was just really cool! Here is the link on how to do it:
As for table numbers what if you got really nice simple frames and framed some pretty paper like this with the table numbers:
Here is the link for the paper:

If you want to combine the favors and placecards, then do that. Don’t let anyone talk you out of it. Edible favors are one per person so they work perfectly as escort cards, and that is frequently done on the various wedding communities and other sites with no problems at all. As for the vendor who told you this, they are working for you so it is their job to make sure your vision is brought to life, even if it not something they personally would do.
