#MeetTheMeowburgs: Table Numbers, Place Cards, & Favor Tags

Hey friends - we're back with another #MeetTheMeowburgs update with Minted! We've been working with Minted throughout our wedding planning process and have LOVED incorporating their products into our big day. If you missed our save the dates or our invitations, be sure to check them out!

We're approximately one month away from the wedding (someone pinch me!), so we're starting to nail down day-of decor and table settings. We still have a lot of DIY decorations on our to-do list, so we wanted to simplify the process of adding table numbers, place cards, and favor tags as much as possible. As usual, we turned to Minted. They have so many offerings when it comes to day-of decor - even dinner menus, programs, and customized cocktail napkins!

We started off by looking for table numbers. We wanted something with green in it, which will match our centerpieces and the chairs in the reception room at our venue. There are hundreds of options to choose from, but you can filter by style, color, and printing type in order to find the design you're looking for. We filtered by classic printing and botanical style and quickly spotted the Simple Pine Branches design and knew it was perfect. The name pretty much says it all - it's simple, but incorporates the greenery we're looking for.

When customizing table numbers, you can change the font, add text, and move text around. While we simply added our names to the front, some of the examples on the Minted website show the wedding date or random facts about the couple (which is such a cute idea!) The back is also fully customizable - we added our wedding date, our wedding hashtag, and a little note thanking our guests for attending. If you wanted you could even add a photo to the back!

Now that we had our design selected, it was easy to add coordinating products. When you select a product on the Minted site, it shows you all of the other items you can create in the same suite (the Simple Pine Branches suite has 18 other options to pick from!) So next up, we created customized place cards so that our guests can find their table when they arrive. The cards come either flat or folded, with your choice of paper and color. When it came to customization, it was super easy to enter guest names and table numbers into the site (the hardest part is figuring out who gets seated together before you place your order, ha.) If you don't want to type all of the names into Minted's site, you can also use their template to upload them.

Finally, to round out our day-of decor, we ordered matching favor tags to attach to gifts for our guests! These tags are small and cute with our just our wedding date and initials on the front. The back of each tag is blank, so we may use this space to add handwritten notes to our guests. The tags are already hole-punched for easy tying, but for an easier option you can purchase favor stickers.

When any package from Minted arrives (only a few days after ordering) we are always so excited to open it up. We ordered both our place cards and favor tags in recycled paper, which is truly excellent in quality. We love that Minted offers recycled paper for most of their products - we seriously can't get over the look and feel of it, so we're always going to choose that when it's an option.

At first, deciding to go with the flat name cards instead of the folded name cards had us a little worried. We didn't want the cards to seem cheap, or like we were skimping to avoid paying the higher cost for folded name cards. (Our typical perception of name cards are folded, but something about the simple flat cards spoke to us!) In the end, cheapness isn't even in the equation. The thickness and high quality of these products make for such an impressive result. We will be so proud for people to see them at our wedding.

Ordering all of these items crossed a major to-do off our list and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Every step of our wedding planning process with Minted has been insanely easy and every product has exceeded our expectations in both speed of arrival and quality - if you're in need of any paper goods for your wedding, be sure to check out Minted!
