DIY seasonal fruit escort cards with Hello! Lucky

Categories   DIY Projects

In the spirit of incorporating simple, beautiful earth-friendly elements into your wedding, Hello! Lucky sent over this yummy idea for seasonal fruit escort (or place) “cards.”


From Hello! Lucky:

“”It was recently cherry season here in California (and I understand that East Coast cherry season is coming up in the next week or so!). We found these gorgeous Ranier cherries at our local farmer’s market, affixed seating tags to the stems, and put them in vintage teacup saucers (these help the cherries stand up and make for a more uniform-looking display). Practically no effort, but beautiful and tasty!”

Rainier cherries are so incredibly luscious and beautiful on their own, they make a smashing little stand for a guest name.

We were thoroughly inspired by the idea that Jillian put together a second version using pears. (For fall/winter brides of course, we do like to go by the season).


Au Natural


Or all gussied up in gold leaf. (All you need to do this is a gold leaf kit from your local craft store).

You can download templates for cherries here, and pears here.

Simple, pretty and inexpensive. You might just need a small team of helpers to affix the labels the morning of the wedding if you’re using something as delicate as cherries. Perhaps over lattes before you start to get ready?

So frickin' cute! Easy, elegant, tasty. I wasn't going to have seating assignments but now I'm going to have to..

Lovely! Is that calligraphy or a printed font? Love it!

It's actually a font. The one used on the cherries is Compendium. For the pears it's Chopin Script.

My daughters are both in serious relationships and I can forsee a wedding in the near future. I love this idea and will definitely be turning to your blog for help when the time comes. :)

Such lovely ideas! We love to use fruit as well and the foil covered pear is so perfect. Have you considered using a stamp on the fruit? It saves paper and has a super cute look too!

Love this idea. I bet the cherries are just as tasty as they are helpful too. And food grade gold leafing would be decadent for all the guests to take the pears home, or slice at the tables. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful and elegant! This is such a dumb question, but what is the best way to affix labels like this to stems and straws?

Sabrina on Jul 10, 2009

The best way to affix this is with either a glue stick or double sided tape. If you're doing a lot, it's worth investing in a 3M Scotch Adhesive Transfer Tape ATG 700 Dispenser and a couple of refills - available at Dick Blick online and framing supply stores. It makes the job go much more quickly and is fantastic for all kinds of other paper crafting projects!

Thank you for the tip!

I think this is a wonderfully understated and chic way to display place-cards. Thank you so much for the idea - I dare say I will try and attempt to do something similar at the next lunch I host.

The cherry idea is amazing! Simple yet effective, and the stem is the perfect spot to wrap a name flag around. I'm going to have to try this for my next dinner party!

Escort reviews on Aug 17, 2009

To make any site popular everyone need to have many banners and reviews. The problem is that nowadays it's hard to find a correct place to set review to. Particularly reviews connected with escort services. Escort reviews is the best place for your escort banners if you want to promote escort services.

Oh, I love this idea! And how gorgeous! I'm not doing place settings, we're having afternoon tea, but I still might find a way to use this... the mark the names of the cheeses on the cheese plate or something!

Amanda Brown on Jan 24, 2010

Thank you! I'm the maid of honor in my best friends wedding and she is going with January Wedding (Exactly 1 year from two days ago). I want to help but it is so hard to find affordable winter wedding ideas that aren't completely kitsch. These will help. Any other suggestions for a January wedding?

so cute! quick question, though. how did you use the provided cherry template? there doesn't seem to be a way to type in guest names on the pdf file. am i missing something? thanks!

100layercake on May 18, 2010

Hi Amy, You should use the template as a guide. Then with one of your computer software programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator or In Design you'll be able to add your own font. Is this something you have access to?

I appreciate the concern which is been rose. The things need to be sorted out because it is about the individual but it can be with everyone. ================================= local escorts

In order to avoid last-minute hassles that can mar the pleasure of the trip, it is advisable that you book a limo trip in advance. Your task of booking a limo is fairly easy, considering the fact that nearly every NY limo rental company has its website to facilitate online limo booking. Limos can be hired both for airport transfers as well as guided city tours. The companies ensure that you are picked up the Airport, once you confirm your flight timings and which of the three New York airports you would be arriving - that's looking after you right from the word go.
