Reserved Signs

At almost every wedding I do, there is always one or two reserved tables. They are usually tables reserved during cocktail hour for grandparents or other elderly guests or tables for family at events that do not have seating for everyone.

I love this free, downloadable reserved sign from a great blog, Blush Printables. What a quick, easy way to make an elegant sign!

Who doesn’t love free things? Especially when they are both practical and beautiful — which is exactly what these downloadable 2011 calendars from Red Stamp are. I love them! Their idea to frame them and give them as a gift is brilliant. Perhaps to an office colleague? Or to a best friend, just because?

Now the problem is, which one to choose….
