This table plan looks stunning but is straightforward to create. Remember you can change the colours and flowers to perfectly match your wedding theme.
|To make a table plan for 9 tables you will need.
Print the names of the wedding couple and the date on the A4 Linen card and trim to size. The size will vary depending on the lengths of your names. This is your title card.
|Print the table numbers and the guest's names onto the A6 Linen cards. Align the text to the right hand side of the card in your word processing program. You can find the template we used at the foot of this page.
Make 9 single shoebuckle bows using the organza ribbon following the instructions here. Make one double bow by adding another layer to the initial shoebuckle bow.
Place a strip of organza ribbon on each printed card as shown. Use sticky tape to attach to the rear of the card. Add the shoebuckle bow with a Mini Glue Dot.
Taking 3 roses at a time, twist the stems together tightly so the rose heads sit together in a small posy. Cut a small hole in each card to the bottom left using a craft knife or scissors and put the rose stems through. Tape them to the back to secure in place.
Cut 9 pieces of Pink Handmade Paper slightly bigger than the A6 cards and mount the cards onto the paper with PVA glue. This will give an elegant border. Do the same with the Title card. Keep the off cuts for your Thank You cards.
|Mount all the cards onto the Mountboard using PVA glue as shown in the photo. You can now place your table plan on the easel provided by the venue or you may wish to have it framed.
Help I don't have 9 tables!
If you have six tables or less an A2 Mountboard will be big enough for your Table Plan. If you have 8 tables put 3 table cards along each side of the plan and two in the middle. If you have more than 16 tables, you will need to make each table card smaller to fit them all on or consider having two table plans.
