✨Getting Started with DIY

Let's kick off this DIY adventure by gathering our materials. You'll need card stock or thick paper in your preferred colour, scissors, a ruler, and a pen. Opt for neutral tones like beige or ivory for a relaxed, casual feel. Cut the paper into small rectangles or squares, ensuring they're large enough to write your guests' names.

✨Adding a Casual Touch

Keep the design of your place cards simple and understated to maintain a casual vibe. Consider adding small embellishments like twine, dried flowers, or small wooden accents to reflect your event's theme. Remember, the beauty of DIY lies in its imperfections, so don't worry about achieving perfection – embrace the handmade charm!

✨Elevating with Handwritten Calligraphy

Once you've completed the crafting, it's time to let the specialty do their job. Contact a calligrapher and have them beautifully write out each guest's name on your crafted place cards.
