With a fresh baguette and a few simple materials, we created an uncomplicated yet polished place setting for our “The World Is Your Market”-themed graduation party. If this place card holder looks good enough to eat, that’s because it is!
What you’ll need:
- Kraft paper
- Baguette (ours is from Panera Catering)
- String or twine
- Black card stock
- Chalk Ink marker
- Small hole punch
Step 1: Cut a 6″ piece of baguette on the diagonal.
Step 2: Cut a 4″ piece of kraft paper just wide enough to wrap around the baguette.
Step 3: Cut an 18″ piece of string. Wrap the kraft paper around the baguette, then secure by tying the string around it.
Step 4: Cut a 2.5″x3″ piece of black card stock. Using the Chalk Ink marker, write a guest’s name on it, then punch a small hole in the end.
Step 5: Thread the string through the card stock, then tie a bow. Place the baguette on a plate for a personalized (and edible!) place card. Repeat for each guest.
