Found objects such as pebbles, shells, leaves, etc. are great to use as place cards - customize them to your theme or color scheme by using an ink pad and rubber stamps! I love this idea because it allows you to be as creative as you want. What other items would you personalize for place cards? Above are painted pebbles that are stamped and can be used as a chopstick rest and a place card holder!
Another great idea - stamp a seashell like the one above, to coordinate with the theme of your party.
