Recycle old postcards by using them as place cards -- or go out and find some amazing postcards that mean something special to you! We mixed and matched ours for a colorful and interesting table setting.

 

 

 

You will need:

 

 

- A vintage post card for each guest. Ask parents and grandparents if they own any. Otherwise local antique shops, Ebay and Etsy are good sources. You can still find unused cards but postcards with messages on the back make for great table conversation. Try to pick cards that have at least one color in common.

 

 

- Japanese masking tape. Available at Happy Tape.

 

 

- Scissors

 

 

- A nice pen

 

 

 

 

Directions:

 

 

Choose a focal color for your table (ours was red). Pick a masking tape in that color and then cut 8 inch pieces. On the end of each piece, cut a V so it looks like the end of a ribbon. Fold it over one side of the card. Write the name of a guest on each piece of tape once it's secured.

 

 

Your guests will treasure these little pieces of history!
