DIY: Easy Ornament Place Cards

At a recent holiday dinner party I attended, the hostess rested basic place cards on a handful of adorable polar bear ornaments to make her simple place settings all the more festive. I was so smitten with the idea that I had to take photos to share. She also spread around some tiny plastic champagne bubbles, which I got a little carried away with after dessert. This project (would you call it a project?) takes almost no time to complete and the guests can leave with an ornament to hang in their own homes.


This idea will work with whatever cute ornaments you fancy, and they don't have to be expensive. If your ornament has a flat surface, you can personalize it by writing each guest's name directly on the ornament. Or, you can get frame ornaments and put a fun photo of each of your guests into the frame, and there'll be no need for name place cards. While I do always appreciate the place card projects that Martha Stewart has up her sleeve, they're often time consuming. So if you're hosting dinner, this may be a better option, especially since you've probably got more important things to worry about, like roasting a turkey or baking a ham...
