I really like these fake pastries escort card holders from save on crafts. But I want to use them as a menu holder (1 for each table) instead. For the reception, we are having a 9 course meal, so I’d like for a menu card on each table so guests will know what they are eating/having next. What do you think about having the menu card on these? Too childish?
I am in the process of putting together a centerpiece mock up. I dont have photos yet, but each table will have 2 milk glass vases (one 9″ with 3 light pink roses and one 6″ vase with 3 ivory roses). There will be ivory and pink doilies underneath. I plan to have the menu card (probably a 7×4 size) in the center clipped onto the cupcake/pastries card holder. If I use these as the menu holder, I will have it sit on top of a doilie.
We are not having cupcakes at the reception, just a wedding cake. So will these seem childish or out of place? Will guest expect there to be cupcakes or other sweets aside from the wedding cake? I think they are cute but I don’t want guests to be bummed out if they are expecting cupcakes…

I can’t guarentee that if I was a guest at your wedding that I wouldn’t try to eat one. They’re cute! If it goes with your “theme” then I say go for it!

Hahaha I would try to eat one!
Here’s what I think you should do: If you’re going to have pastries/treats instead of a cake (or in addition to a cake!), then those go along with the theme and they will blend into your decor. They are cute after all!
But if you’re not having any treats aside from cake then I do think they’re a little out of place. But seriously, if you like them, have them!

When I read the title I was thinking “oh man, they’re probably so fake looking and will look silly” but when I saw the photos, I totally changed my mind!!! I think they’re super cute, definitely go for it! I’d love to see a mock up.

Ok what if I gave out individually wrapped edible sweets as favors for the guests (such as cake pops, cookies)? Will using those fake pastries be justifiable?
