Table Name Signs!

I spent most of yesterday in my basement craft room working on these four little signs for the dining tables at the wedding.  I always feel kinda bad when I go to a wedding and the tables are numbered and I'm at like Table 17.  The head table is usually table 1 and the parents of the couple are at 2 and 3... and then there's me, the cousin or the friend or whatever and I'm like the way afterthought.  I didn't want anyone to feel that way so instead of numbering our tables (we only have four so far!) so I'm naming them after Disney characters.

Prince Charming, the munchkins and I will be sitting at Mickey.  Duh.

There's also Minnie, Donald and Goofy.  I have Pluto and Daisy on reserve if we need them!

I made these using my Cricut and the Mickey & Friends and the Accent Essentials cartridges. The frames were easy once I worked out the sizes.  All of my time investment came from piecing together the tiny components of the characters after getting them to cut out properly.  I think I need to replace the blade on my machine.

Anyway, here they are:

For the record, Goofy, was the hardest.  His pieces were the most complicated to cut and the smallest to handle.  My fingertips were covered with glue when I was done!


  1. How pretty!! You did a great job and they look awesome!

  2. They look great and I'm also a fan of table NAMES rather than numbers. I never thought of how a guest would feel about being at a numbered table, but I guess you're right. I think your guests are going to LOVE sitting at a character table. I know I got pretty excited about being at the "Pluto" table at a recent wedding I went to. :)

    I'm also so amazed by your skills with the Cricut. I really need to open mine. It's been like 3 years since I got it! Ha ha! Your table name cards look so awesome!!!

  3. How funny, I got comments from Faith and Hope. Don't think I know anyone named Charity!

    1. LOL Maybe there's a "Grace" out there to round out the comments? ;)

  4. Adorable and I love the sparkle paper!
