Table Planning Prettiness

We love this glamorous use of washi tape! You can use these little bad boys for virtually anything and we love how they've been used here to create little frames as part of a table plan. If you're having a large wedding this might take a little too long, but you could always create one large frame and print off the table plans and glue them inside it.
