My DIY paper placemats
I posted this on the main board but figured I'd post it here in case anyone else would be interested in this idea. Our wedding is going to be fairly small and very budget oriented (less than $1000 for everything, including the honeymoon). Still, I wanted it to look as nice as possible.
One very small way I thought I could make our tables look a bit nicer at the reception was to use those paper placemats they sell at the party stores. But since we're having a literary-themed wedding, I had an idea to make our own using some of our favorite romantic quotes from literature, so I opened up my graphics program and started designing this. (I keep tweaking it, so it's already a bit different than the image below.)
I'm using an ivory background to go with our color scheme and will print these out onto legal sized paper.
Here's a link to a much larger PDF file (and updated image) if you want to read them all:
