Happy Thanksgiving! We are quickly approaching our 2 year anniversary date! This time two years ago, we were gearing up for our Mehndi party and Thanksgiving dinner. Oh memories =)
If you’re planning a Fall wedding and need ideas for seasonal themed decor, take a look at these place cards - they’re super green (real leaves!) and easy DIY for someone who has pretty handwriting or calligraphy skills.

Mini matchbook notepads are the cutest little favors! You can use them as placecards as well =) Check out all these great designs!
I attended a wedding over Memorial Day Weekend, and let me tell you, the bride had some creative ideas that I’ve never seen before! Like this photo joiner/mosaic for the placecards. One large image was cut into squares that had each guest’s name on the front and table number on the back. Underneathe was another mosaic/joiner image. They stuck it with a rubber cement-like glue so it didn’t rip the cards. It looked so cool!

I love these “Horn OK Please” Auto Rickshaw placecards! Really fun idea for a Reception or Sangeet. They can even be personalized with your wedding date as the license plate - so cute. You can purchase them on Etsy from Masala Memories' Shaadi Series.
You wouldn’t think of them as decorative accessories, but there are so many ways to incorporate clothespins into your wedding. We used them to display our reception placecards:
1. Buy some pretty ribbon or a thick border (this is a Kanjeevaram border from India) that matches with the reception color scheme.
2. Order placecards that match with your invitations or stationery - they should not be tent cards, and they should be smaller or the same width as the border.
3. Buy some mini paper clips and spray paint them with one of the accent colors (this is really easy to do..just lay them out on a newspaper, spray one side, and flip them all over after they are dry to spray the other side).
4. If you have a frame of some sorts (this was a room divider, so it was perfect), or something to attach the ribbon or border to, you can weave or hang them down, creating a pretty decoration.
5. Clip the placecards with one or two clothespins to the ribbon or border.
Our guests loved them!
