These three easy-to-make holiday place cards are going to charm your guests.
CREATIVE SOLUTIONS | While place cards can seem a little silly for intimate dinner parties, they make perfect sense when you’re hosting a long-table meal and want to deliberately mix and match up your guests, or you’re doing a sit-down meal with multiple tables and desire a semblance of order.
Here are our three current favourite easy-to-make place card holders, all suited perfectly to this holiday season.
