Darling Detail No: 14: Compass Escort Cards

I think I might be on a nautical kick!  I know the ever so wonderful and uber talented Chris, over at Postcards and Pretties, is already on one - as she said so right here ;-)  But with my Getting Knotty post yesterday, this post now, and a Picture Perfect Palette post coming up soon...well I think I just have to say that I am on one as well! 

So with that - have a look-see at these darling compass escort cards...
Darling Detail
Eeks...so perfectly nautical, no?  You can purchase these darling compass escort cards on LH Calligraphy's Etsy shop, where she calligraphy's the names and table numbers of your guests for you.  Click here to get there quick.

However, she also sells a compass kit with blank paper inserts so you could make your own.  AND, if you change the fabric they are on (or don't use fabric at all), and use a fun font these could easily be used for a woodsy wedding too.  How darling would they be hanging from trees?  Just flip the names around on the inside of the compass, attach some twine to the metal ring and hang. 

Or you could hang them while closed and have the guests names on the outside, just use a Glue Dot to adhere the paper too without ruining the compass.  Then on the inside have the table your guest is to sit at - so they have to open to find their seat.  And continuing on, have a sign that says "Please Find Your Way To Your Seat".  And have the table numbers be not numbers at all, but directions like NNE... oh you know I could go on, but I will stop there before I get too carried away.  But they would be oh so cute, no?
