Retro Escort Card How-To

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2010

Cultivate this palette in your floral arrangements by intermingling plums, black grapes, ball dahlias, and begonia leaves with more familiar pink floral fare. To work the elegant combination into your dinner decor, opt for escort cards with a design as crisp as navy itself.

Use our tented cards as escort cards, place cards, or even favor tags.

Download our PDF, and type in guests' names and table numbers. (You can also delete the letters, print the cards with blank spaces, and have the names written by hand.)

Print the cards onto white or cream card stock or cover-stock paper. Use a bone folder and a metal ruler to score the paper between the dotted crop marks; this will make folding the cards in half easier and cleaner.

Then use a craft knife and a metal ruler to cut between the solid crop marks (do not cut all the way to the edges of the paper; this will leave the crop marks intact for subsequent cuts). If you've printed the cards blank, leave them unfolded for writing on.

Just before placing the cards on the tables, fold them along the scored lines, creasing lightly so they will stand up.
