DIY Summery Place Card Holders

Posted by Meghan Quinones
If you are throwing a Summer Soiree, these easy orange DIY place card holders are just what you need to incorporate into your place settings!

Summertime equals party time. There are so many get-togethers throughout the Summer months like Memorial Day, the 4th of July, Labor Day, and other events like picnics and weddings. If you are throwing a party (or know someone who is), you need to make these easy place cards using oranges!

These adorable orange place cards are just what your party needs. They add visual interest and a pop of color to any tablescape. Just think how perfect these would be for a Summer wedding. I know a lot of brides nowadays are looking to cut down their wedding costs by making some of their own wedding decor. Place cards are one of the easiest wedding projects to tackle if you are a new DIYer, or if you do not have a ton of time. Most brides will print their place cards on white cardstock and call it a day. If you want to really impress your guests, think outside of the box and turn a playful orange into a place card by adding two pieces of paper (for leaves) and a thumb tack. Yep, it's that easy!

What I love most about these place cards is the fact that they are dual-purpose. They not only show your guests where to sit, but they also act as a healthy party favor for them to take when they leave. If for some reason they forget their parting gift, you can toss one of the oranges into your lunch and stock-up on your Vitamin C for weeks to come! :)
