Displaying Escort cards

How do I display these for my guests girls?

On one side is a photo of Grace Kelly from various films and on the other is the guests name and table name.

I want to hang them from something with riboon, but from what?

am in need of your clever ideas please

    Have you seen those picture clip holders? They have a small clear cube at the base and a long metal stick type thing from it you are supposed to use them to display pics from. They may work well?x

    Where are you planning on hanging them from? Can you do something clever with the beautiful staircase they have?

    what about a beautiful crystal tree? you could try making one.... i had been going to do this, got my inspiration from something similar on style me pretty but in the end i used lots of vintage style photo frames and had each table plan printed with monogram and inserted in the frame.

    I'm having the same problem at the moment with escort cards! Here are a couple of ideas I've seen...

    (love this one!)

    Have a look on stylemepretty - it takes a while but they've got some gorgeous ideas!

    Ooh sorry they've come out massive and I can't resize them!

    oh I really like the idea of pinning them to ribbon like the last ones - couldn't you hang them from the staircase, mixed with strings of beads and crystals too... would look amazing!! x

    I am a big fan of escort cards. Really nice way to show someone to their seat without having a table plan board.

    We had a member of staff who handed out the cards from a table that I had ensured was decorated with lovely bits and pieces.

    This way the guest could be told where to find the table in the room which is useful if you have lots of tables.

    I loved the idea of hanging them of mini trees or ribbon but I was told it may take peopel ages to find their card and could delay things. Just make sure they are in alphabetical order or something!!

    Make sure you get a photo of the display so you can show us!! xx

    I love the piccies on the ribbon - though technically they are not escort cards. I think its said the bride displayed old pics of her and her grooms families on that to disguise the room change. Thought it was a good idea for cards too though.

    Oh poppyttt having someone hand them out sounds like a fab idea - I was imagining a large crowd gathering round the table with them on and people fighting for space (not the vibe I was going for!) Thanks for the tip!

    tsl - our florist is making us a "tree" from branches to hang our escort cards on

    maybe you could do something similar - iminlove's idea of a crystal tree is a good one as they look really beautiful
