I’m using cookies with our monogram "painted" on them for our escort cards at the reception.
They will be wraped in a clear celophane bag and tied with a ribbon with their name on a card hanging from it – but I’m having a hard time finding something to set them in to hold them up right, short of buying 225 plate easles…lol
Anyone have any crafty ideas on how to do this, or know of somthing you’ve seen that maybe is used in stores…whatever that I could pick up and dress up for the wedding?
I want to avoid them getting fumbled through a lot, avoid breakage – you know?

What about something like this? But instead of one row, you get a large piece of paper maybe 21" in width and then string the ribbon every 7 inches or so so that you can have 3 rows of cookies. I’m thinking a larger piece of paper may make it sturdier. Not sure though.

Just a thought, but what about putting really pretty paper on a flat bulletin board, and tack the cookies up with those nice pins, like the kind that look like pearls on top or something that matches your color scheme?? you could either lay the boards flat on the table or put them on an easle??

I can’t believe you’re thinking about all these little details already – I have 3 months to go and haven’t decided anything about place/escort cards!
For another example of the martha stewart technique that stressgirl615 posted about, I believe Mrs. Lime did something similar – search for "placecard lasagna" in the blog archive…

You have the best ideas! I am having so much trouble figuring out ordinary stuff like flowers… What if you had cookies-on-a-stick, like in the cookie bouquets? Then they could all stand in a decorated block of foam (or several blocks)? I saw somewhere that sometimes they actually decorate foam for some of the layers of the cake to make it larger – so you could have the foam decorated like that, or airbrushed with a large version of your monogram.

OMG – I can’t believe I don’t have it figured out already! LOL
I’m a stay at home mom, getting a kid ready for dance recitles and pre school – so I have to do this stuff when I can, or it may never get done!!!
Thanks for all the ideas, I’m looking for all of them! I might even be able to enlist FI to "build" something – which he’s been itching to do 🙂
