We love the idea of using these pretty pierced creamware plates as an alternative to a traditional paper table plan.


The set of nine decorative plates from Borrowed Blue Boutique come ready-strung with ribbon, so all you need is a china graph pencil (and a steady hand!) to write on the names of your guests. Use one plate per table. Then after the wedding, simply de-ribbon, wash and hey presto! You have a set of beautiful creamware plates to show off your culinary efforts.
