Dragonfly Name Cards with a Twist!
I'll start with the twist. So you know how you go to a wedding and sometimes you don't know the people at your table and it takes about 15 minutes to warm up to each other? But by the end of the reception you're almost like long lost pals from high school?
In order to expedite this process we printed the name and a random fact or two about each guest on the BACK of their name card so that those sitting at their table could:
A. Remember their name
B. Have a conversation starting clue
For instance some of the tidbits were quite detailed as they named the persons occupation, favorite video game, hobby or where they met the bride or groom. The guests loved it! Some got creative and even wrote in more information by hand.
Now onto the ornament. I made 73 hand beaded dragonflies and attached them to each name card. Red for the men and fuchsia for the women. They actually doubled as the favors.
At the end of the night all but three guests had taken their cards home with them. The dragonflies were wired to the card so could be easily removed it anyone wanted to tie a ribbon or piece of fishing line to one to turn it into an ornament.
