I’m usually worse than a safe box when it comes to keeping things a surprise for events, but this time it’s been harder than ever because for the most part, the things I make are for random people so I can do #CraftingWithKathy episodes on Snapchat/Instastories or ask my friends for opinions, but since it’s all for Michelle’s shower, I can’t show anything to anyone because they’ll be there too. Since I’m kind of dying inside not being able to share what I’ve been working on for months now, and the shower is already this week, I wanted to show you just one little detail of what you’re going to see for my best friend’s Moroccan Bridal Shower, so make sure to look out for the recap post next week!
Trying to keep in line with the theme in all areas of the party, one of my favorite details is the place cards, or rather, place tiles that we’ll be using. Michelle’s mom Marta is taking care of putting together the seating chart, and since we’ll be putting the plates/napkins/cups already on the table, the place tiles will serve as 1. seat assignment, 2. weight to keep down the plate and napkin, and 3. a favor for attendees to take home.
I found an idea for the Moroccan place tiles on Etsy, but theirs showed the names in writing, and when I attempted it I didn’t love my penmanship for this, as you can see in the pictures below. I tried a few different markers and color swaps, none that I liked.
Because of this, I decided to stick to my tried and true: my Cricut. Cricut and vinyl never ever fail me, and the best part is I made a video (I’m getting better at documenting!) to showcase the process for anyone who may be intrigued as to how to put this together:
I am OB-SESSED to no end with how these turned out ❤
For the materials, I used:
- Moroccan Tile from Home Depot
- Rose Gold Vinyl (purchased mine from an Etsy shop that recently closed)
- White Adhesive felt sheets from JoAnn
