I’m not sure of the dimensions of a cigar box (it’s been over twenty years since I’ve seen any, and those were like the old-style cardboard-type school/pencil boxes).  

Would this work, though?  : Take a cigar box, put a slender, narrow vase into the center and then lean the cards against the vase on each side?  You could then put either bud flowers (the vases I’m thinking of are called ‘bud vases’ because they are so narrow) or any other flower into the vase.

You’d have all the parts you want combined into what I think would be a cute, different, and unique centerpiece.

Good luck!  Hope this helped some!

I have a taller square cigar box in my bathroom I use to store perfume. I could totally picture it with a small vase of water inside and some flowers. Would be a smaller centerpiece but very unique! Most boxes I’ve seen are long and flat, if you could do the tall ones I’d say those would work better.

This is a great idea. You could even have the postcards do double duty as escort cards. Display them at the entrance table with names and table assignments added on a post- it note or other label, then have  sign telling people what you what them to do with the postcards.

You could also display them using wine cork holders with the names written on the corks:


This one is a tower of 3 cigar boxes with chocolate cigars in the top box. The bottom box is drawer style and has a small knob. You could put your postcards here. I presume you are going to have someone explain what you want guests to do with the postcards.

I had to throw this in as it’s so pretty even if it doesn’t work for you:

or make the box part of a tablescape

This party used the cigar boxes as containers for the flowers but I think it would look equally nice just propped on its’ side beside the vase. Love the napkin treatment!

That is a really cool and unique idea!  If you want some beautiful traditional Cuban weddings shirts for your fiance, check these out. They go really well with the themes, and if he’s wearing a suit, this might be good for the party.  


Good Luck!
