Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego theme song via You Tube
Since our tables are not numbered but instead named after places we have traveled to Mr. E thought it would be smart to give the guests a little help finding their tables. Being the computer wiz of the Elephant duo, he whipped up a floor plan of our venue in Photoshop with a layout of the tables. I took the file to FedEx Office, enlarged it to 20 x 30 and used spray adhesive to attach it to a foam board. This will give the guests a general direction to head once they enter the ballroom.
The heading is a play off of the Carmen Sandiego show (thanks to our planner Kathie for the suggestion!).
We are planning on either setting this map on a stand behind the escort cards, or on an easel next to the table with the escort cards.
And a couple more gratuitous shots of the escort cards. The wine corks may have been brutal, but I didn't realize we would start to hate folding, spraying, and holding the little paper stand until they stuck! It may have taken some time, but I LOVE the look of them standing up.
And a shot from above, how our guests will look for their name.
Since there are only 13 guest tables we're hoping no one gets lost :)
How did you display your table assignments? For those that did not number your tables, did your guests have a hard time locating their tables?
