Adirondack chair favors / place cards


Our dear friend Karen approached James and I regarding her husband's retirement party.

You see they have the cutest YELLOW adirondack chairs on their deck.
They retire there in the evenings to watch the sunset over the lake.

I couldn't resist.

Their invites featured yellow adirondack chairs motif with blue wave board representing the lake. The place cards were miniature yellow adirondack chairs.

When the guests were finished eating they joined together at Karen's house. They really enjoyed seeing their TRUE life size yellow adirondack chairs on the deck.

I truly feel a THEME is necessary for EVERY party. A party without a theme is like a cake without icing. It is just wrong.

When throwing a party or wedding, think about what REPRESENTS YOU or the guest of honor. Incorporate the theme / motif on the invite, favor tags, menus, place cards, table cards, thank you cards, and more!

Isn't making memories fun!

ENJOY.

  1. These placecards are adorable! Very creative. If I were interested in getting them for a party of my own, how would I go about that?

  2. Hello Mel! I made them myself. YOU can too! It is super easy to print on your computer your guests' names then use a cutter to cut them. Have fun! xo

    The chairs are absolutely adorable! Where did you find the miniature adirondack chairs? They are beautiful replicas! Do you mind sharing the name of the company or manufacturer? Thanks so much

  4. Hello Pam! A local craft store use to carry them. I do see this baker using them. You could ask them. Good luck!
