More WAys to Use Your Place Card HOlders

I used these for Thanksgiving, but they’d be totally great for other events too! They’d be gorgeous place card holders for a wedding reception or baby shower. You could even use them to assign table numbers to your guests at a wedding.

If you don’t have a table to decorate, use them as gift tags or toppers. Or just line some up on a shelf or wall and display them as decor without name tags.

Finding Plants for your Mini Air Plant Wreaths

Now I know some of y’all don’t have easy access to air plants, so as usual, Amazon to the rescue. There are links below for you everything you need, from the embroidery hoop to the plants. And these little air plants are super quality; they all showed up at my doorstep happy and healthy. Read on for the full tutorial.

Materials

Make Time: 5 Minutes per Place Card Holder

  1. Remove the inner ring from the embroidery hoop; this is the piece that will form your wreath. Choose a couple of air plants in varying sizes. Cut a length of embroidery thread.
  2. Weave the embroidery thread through the tendrils of the air plant so that the thread is hidden. Wrap the embroidery thread around the hoop so that the air plant is secured on the hoop.
  3. Tie a double knot in the embroidery thread at the back of the hoop to secure the air plant.
  4. Repeat the process with another air plant, directly next to the first on the hoop.
  5. Cut a small rectangle of cardstock and punch a hole in the upper left corner. Use the paint pen to write the names of your guests, one on each piece of cardstock.
  6. Cut a short length of embroidery thread and thread it through the hole in the cardstock. Tie the thread around the back of the hoop to affix the name to the wreath.
  7. Then just put the place card holders at your dining table for the celebration!

Air Plant Care

If your guests need instructions on how to care for the air plants, just tell them to soak them with water once a week, then let them dry thoroughly. Piece of cake! xoxo

  1. I just ordered and realized they’ll likely arrive well before Thanksgiving! Do I need to care for them BEFORE as well??

    Also, where is your flatware from! So excited to style like this for Tday!

    1. Awesome Francesca! That’s perfect! Yes, when the air plants arrive I would give them a good overnight soaking, as they might be tired from travel. 😉 Just soak them fully submerged in a bowl of room temp water and let them dry out in the morning. Do the same thing about once a week and they should be good! Would love to see your final project — be sure to share on social with #thelovelysquad so I can check it out! xo

      1. Received all my Darby Smart goodies and am so excited! Only confusing thing is that when I added all supplies to the cart, it only had 1 air plant with 4 embroidery hoops – turns out I need 4 plants for the 4 hoops! I’d recommend upping that 🙂

        Can’t wait to share the final outcome with you!

  4. Francesca i think i saw some similar flatware at anthropologie.
    LOVELY, lets say i looove your project, byt i have some other air plant ideas. Where can i get some, good quality at a good price?

    1. Hi Bethany! You can get some from Darby Smart without ordering the whole kit! Just search “air plants” on their site. They’re the best quality I’ve found at a really great price.
