winter inspiration: place cards! {guest blogger custom paper works}

from Jacin:  I am so excited to have Kate from Custom Paper Works here today to share her favorite winter place card findings.  Kate is so creative and enthusiastic, you must go check her out if you haven't already!  Thank you Kate for the amazing round-up!


from Kate: There's something about winter weddings that make them immediately unique. Especially if you know you'll be fighting (or working with) weather in cold and snowy locations ... or maybe that's just my take because I'm usually working on invitations for tropical beachy destinations! I had a blast getting into a wintery mood to gather some fun place card inspiration.

Place cards are an often-overlooked opportunity to show some personality at your wedding. That little card is usually what first welcomes the guests. Make them special! Have some fun! Create a mood for the reception right at the enterance.

Try a twist on the traditional...




Or try a crafty holder...



Or make your place cards favors as well...


On a related note, personal table numbers are such a charming touch. I know a certain someone who will love this idea! (from jacin - you're right!!)


Just catching up on the winter inspiration?  Here's the line-up thus far:
Favors
Boutonnieres from Charity Wedding
Cocktails from Sparkle & Hay
Paper Design from Paper Moss

Accessories from Linz Loves You
