Seating plans and escort cards
Imaginative ways to incorporate keys into your seating plan or escort card display could include:
- Use heart themed keys and luggage tags to create escort cards that also double up as a unique skeleton key favour for your guests.
- For a shabby chic touch, mount your keys in a distressed white wooden frame.
- To add your keys to a rustic theme, find an old wooden door – the older the better – and create a seating plan by hanging your keys from small nails in the door.
- Choose a selection of totally mismatched keys to create a unique and quirky display;
- Alternatively, choose colour coordinated ribbon to tie your matching keys to hand crafted luggage tags.
- Whatever seating plan or escort card display that you decide on, include a sign inviting guests to ‘Find the key to your seat’.
- For an offbeat, quirky theme for your reception, consider a humorous ‘prison break’ theme with a 50’s gangster vibe. The perfect theme for your key accessories!
Table names and numbers
- Use card with an elegant key monogram to print your table numbers;
- Keys are integral to a fantastic Alice in Wonderland theme – name your tables after characters in the famous story;
- Add a skeleton key to your table number sign;
- If you are having floral centrepieces in vases, write your table name or number on a luggage tag and attach it to your choice of key. Tie this around your floral centrepiece’s vase.
- Use key place card holders for guest name cards;
- Wrap glass jam jars or vases in hessian, and use twine to tie an antique key onto the vase. Place your choice of flowers in the vase for a budget friendly rustic centrepiece;
- Tie your napkins with ribbon and top with a pretty vintage key.
- Invite guests to write their thoughts on ‘the key to a happy marriage’ in your guest book;
- Keys will enhance many other wedding themes, such as rustic, woodland, shabby chic and homespun, to name but a few.
