We have never, ever used placecard holders in our own home, but understand the draw, especially for large dinners with guests that may not know each other. These nickel-plated brass 2" fortune cookies might just be some of the cutest we've seen. Another plus? They're pitched as having multiple uses, such as holding photos and notes.
If you need many because you like having the largest dinner parties possible, the cost may get you:
$38 for a set of 4 (available at Chiasso).
Any great DIY placecard holder ideas out there? Or other good finds?
