Cabinet of Curiosities Escort Card Display

A collection of shells and ocean-y elements, arranged like a cabinet of curiosities, sets the tone for a shoreside celebration and makes getting guests to their seats a breeze. But this idea isn’t limited to coastal events; if your venue is inland, you can just as easily fill a display case with other location-specific treasures, such as rocks and ferns for a woodland fête, or vintage coins and mass-transit tokens for a city affair. Whatever you choose, use our editable tag to add attendees’ names and table numbers.
