Try This: Stamped Name Tag Place Cards

Quick and easy way to use stamps to create place cards (click through for more)If you are planning to decorate for a dinner party this holiday season, it’s a smart idea to plan out a mix of both easy and hard projects for your tablescape (or all easy if you’re in a rush!). Place cards are a great addition to a table in that they add a decor element and show your guests where to sit without any awkward seat fumbling or fighting. You just can’t argue with a place card. For Friendsgiving we wanted to add quick, but cute, place cards to each seat, and a “Hello My Name Is” stamp was the perfect choice for the occasion.

  • Incredibly cute idea, simple and beautiful! Thanks for sharing, ABM! I might have missed it on your shop’s FAQ, but how much is shipping internationally to New Zealand?

  • I lead a team of 11 (soon to be 13) FABULOUS account managers at Benefit Cosmetics, so I will TOTALLY be using this stamp to personalize their folders at our next biz meeting!

  • where’s this weeks casual friday post? I have to say that is the highlight of my week – seeing the casual, natural shots you take each friday. I also can’t live without your sister style photoshoots <3.

  • So cute! This would be a fancy name tag attached to a stuffed toy to be given as a Christmas present!

  • Such a cute idea! I also am loving Brittany’s idea of using them to label food for a party. I host large potlucks at work and am always looking for new ways to (cutely) label food.

  • Great idea! So cute and refreshingly different!

  • I really love the cute creative ideas that are posted on your blog deffinetly going to try this one out. Love what your doing guys xx

  • I personally love to personify inanimate objects, so I think it would be super cute to use as labels for food at a party. Like a tray of cookies – “Hello, my name is Simply Delicious, I am made with apples and macadamia nuts so don’t eat me if you’re allergic!”. I am a huge dork.

  • I love name cards!


  • A great idea for my next dinner in December! Will try this out.

    Have a great evening!

  • Great idea and I LOVE the table runner! Everything looks fabulous!

  • This is such a great idea!! I am loving all the gold elements next to the green stamped name tag, it looks amazing!! I am going to have to try this sometime 🙂
