escort/place cards, clothespins chalkboard paint metallic sharpie printed names on cardstock (we used Housegrind, a free font from Dafont.com)
1. Start by spray painting your clothespins with chalkboard paint. For even coverage they might need two coats of paint. Follow the directions on your can for dry times.
On your computer, print out simple escort and place cards for each guest. Cut them accordingly
2. For the escort cards: use the larger clothespins and a metallic Sharpie to write each table number and then add each guests name card. *For mess ups; since we are using a Sharpie you will need to repaint.
3. For the place cards: add each guests name card and possibly a flower or stem of greenery. Different flower stems could possibly communicate the guests choice of meal to the servers.
