Here's what we're thinking:
Each table will be named for a city or place in California that has meaning to us. But instead of simply printing the city names on cardstock, we'll use postcards to identify each table.
So far on our list, we're including Disneyland, Stephen's hometown of Sacramento, and Napa - one of our favorite places to visit on vacation.
To get a table assignment before entering the ballroom, each guest will find a postcard with his or her name on the back. To personalize things, we're planning to also include a special message of thanks to each guest on the backs of the cards.
And to add even more of a twist, rather than using traditional escort-card holders, we've decided to go with wine corks, since we've always loved visiting wineries.
Check out these samples we put together, and let me know what you think!
