DIY: Embellished Place Settings

Wedding season is in full swing, which can only mean that bridal showers are too. So, we thought it’d be the perfect time to share a chic shower DIY that’s easy to make—and easy on any planner’s budget.Embellishing your guests’ place settings is a fun way to add a dash of elegance to your event, and your bride will absolutely love the thought.

Here’s how it’s done…


  • Kraft paper
  • White paint pen
  • Clear glass plates

Step 1: Set the Stage

Turn your kraft paper into a tablecloth. If space doesn’t permit, cut runners or rectangular shapes for each spot.

Step 2: Get Creative

Use the paint pen to write out each guests’ name. Add fun flourishes, delicate dots and more! You can even use this space to play up your party’s theme. Just make sure to keep your handcrafted design within the shape and size of the plate that it will sit under.

Step 3: Add the Finishing Touches

Place your plate, silverware and glassware down. Step back and smile knowing that guests are going to love it!
