I am adoring this simple but cute escort card idea that I came up with, when I ran across the clock faces on The Graphics Fairy blog. My idea is that whatever time is marked on the clock, is the table your guest is to sit out. By using two different clock faces (roman numerals and numbers), you can have up to 24 tables! If you are having 12 tables or less, then you can easily use one style. You could also use one style, and do every half hour if you'd like. Either way it would be cute don't you think? And I would use a larger clock printout with the time marked as table markers for each table (sorry I should have done that for you and taken pictures - but I didn't think about it until after I tore everything down and put it away). Yet, I would LOVE to use actual vintage clocks faces - if I ever find bunches of them, you know I will be buying them!
A couple of the other details that I am sure some of you have seen some of these before...
I love my vintage books with the covers torn off...just adds to the vintage look, no?
Yes, this is the same Baby's Breath that I used in last Thursday's post. It's remarkable that it still looks good, and I love the fact that I did not have to spend any money on flowers - hehe.
I crocheted one long row, wrapped it around the base and then knotted in back. It's a quick and easy way to wrap a bouquet.
And one more picture of the vintage clock face escort cards...Hope you enjoyed this combined Tuesday Thought and Homemade post - since it's a short week! It just so happend that I stumbled upon The Graphics Fairy blog. She is the creator of these free printable clock faces, and numerous other free printables and crafty projects. Search and you will find some really cool things.
If you are interested in the clock faces you see above, you can find the roman numerals here, and the numbers here. Yet, you could always create your own. And don't think for one second this can only be used for a vintage theme! How cool would a retro clock face be? Or a sleek modern one? Just change out the styling and voila - a total new look.
So I will leave you with those thoughts. Happy Tuesday my dears!
***Note: I used a brown marker to write the names, and draw the clock arms on the clocks. However, I would have either someone that writes very well, or a calligrapher do this for me if I was to use at an event.
***Sidenote: After the past couple of weeks, and reviewing my Tuesday Thought and my Thursday Homemade posts - I am TIRED of beige walls, and I can only imagine that you are too! I think a paint job will be in order after Christmas...so bear with me and the beige walls a little while longer. Please.
...concept, design, styling and photography all by me
