I just finished creating my table names and was hoping to get some feedback. My plan is to get them printed on cardstock, find clips or figure out if my reception venue has holders and fold them in half.
Feedback would be great! Thanks!

These are abs. gorgeous AND classy. I like the idea too. I’ve been trying to come up with something for a Colorado-themed wedding thats not the names of cities in Colorado or mountain peaks (too been done). Now I’m thinking of maybe just significant places to us in CO.

Thanks guys for the feedback! I had them printed off and cut at Office Max this afternoon and I think they turned out great. I went searching for table number holders, but didn’t find them and I might end up skipping them. What do you think? As is they are roughly 4 inches tall on their own.
Here’s some details of how I did it…
I found the hibiscus template here:
For the location font, I downloaded York Script and used point 66. You cand find that here:
The description font is a standard MS Word font, Cambria point 26 in all caps. I did both fonts in dark blue, listed in the standard colors at the bottom in Powerpoint.
The cards ended up being 7.5 squares. I used 65 pound cardstock. If you end up making these, check your cardstock! I ended up buying a pack that had a textured mix. So half my cards have a noticeable texture and the other half have a very slight texture. I’m happy with them and they will be setting apart at each table so I’m not going to worry about it.
I’m not too familiar with this kind of stuff, so there likely is an easier way. The hibiscus template is designed for flat cards. Originally I was just trying things out so I put the text on the template as is. When I decided I wanted to fold the cards, I had to make a copy of hte original and crop the yellow portion and pink portion separetly. Then I flipped the yellow portion and aligned it atop the pink one.
I’m not sure if this all makes sense and I’d be happy to clarify if someone has questions. Thanks again for the kind feedback!
