For some reason, I am obsessed with placeholders.
Never mind the fact that I rarely use them, or the fact that I usually don’t have a firm guest list until an hour before the party starts (“Hey, when does it start? And do I need to bring anything?”) I still think there’s something really cool about having a spot reserve just for you. It really dresses up the occasion and makes it something a little more special.
These placeholders are all also adorable, and not too hard to make. Warning: The following is really Martha-heavy (we are a Martha-worshopping home after all)

The blue-green ribbon is a nice touch. I’d probably go with a more natural pinecone coloring, but this is cute as well. via hgtv
