Ok,  I saw this on Once Wed and it is probably the cutest way that I’ve ever seen escort cards displayed.  Sadly we don’t need escort cards because we aren’t asigning seats, but I thought this would be so cute, especially for a fall wedding (hint, hint Ashley) so I had to share!

After they pick, they find out what table they are sitting at, and you could do all different type of root vegetables to signify different tables.

So here’s how you do it:

Supplies:
craft paper, scissors, large popsicle sticks, glue stick, wooden box (or any container of your choice), sheet moss, gouache paint (or markers) and paint brush.

Directions:
Cut out the shapes of the carrots (or other vegetables) and glue them to the popsicle sticks. Then paint (or write) the guest names one the side of the sticks as well as paint the table number on each carrot (gouache works well on both wood and paper).

Fill the box about 2 inches high with moss, enough to hold the sticks securely in position. To insert the sticks into the moss  use the end of the scissors to cut little incisions to allow the carrots to slide in easily. Finish off with a little rabbit or some sort of figurine, a painted sign, acorns, paper leaves, and so on.

Love it!
