P.S. My photographer was Lori Ann Quarles.
A stack of brown plastic plates will be at the buffet, and here's what I've come up with to sit at each place setting. I have a variety of coordinating prints of scrapbook paper that will make the bands that wrap around the napkins, and the menus will be printed on cardstock, so you won't be able to see through them.
Here are my DIY monogrammed plastic cups:
Here are our plates:
I'm planning on hanging these (and more when I make them) from a few of the rafters at my chapel and reception location. I'm going to attach dark brown ribbon for them to hang from, but I don't know yet how long the ribbons need to be.
They were designed by PW's erindira, aka Taylored Paper Designs.
I got my chocolate brown cardstock and envelopes from Cards and Pockets.
I used plain white cardstock and printed them on my home printer, then I used a Fiskars scrapbooking trimmer to cut them apart.
And I totally broke etiquette and used white shipping labels on my wedding invitations. I dressed them up a little by using a font I liked and putting a double line border around the address, but they're labels. Oh, and I used an embosser from Horchow for the return address. The brown color is too dark for that to show well in pictures (plus I don't want to publish our address on a public forum).
