The wedding ... vintage inspired, merlot, plum, silvers, glamorous. We tossed around handfuls of ideas and decided on a custom tufted pin board. Oh, it is amazing. The pics really do not do it justice. At 4ft by 2ft - to hold the 125 mini square envelope escort cards - it is an impressive piece of decor as well.
With swatches of Devon's linens (from La Tavola Linen - a fav linen company of mine) in hand, I headed off to the fabric store finding the perfect compliment to the table linens she had chosen. The fabric I found was pin-tucked so there was no need to over complicate the design with a ribbon criss-cross pattern. I ordered vintage inspired rosette rhinestone buttons to tuft the board. Floral pins with a clear crystal on the end will be used to attach the little cards and ... voila the result simple elegant perfection.
Custom tufted boards can be made in just about any shape and fit any number of escort cards. Devon's board was $275.
