I love this idea for your wedding, but you could also adapt for your next dinner party, potluck dessert gathering, or thanksgiving table: Recipe Card place cards. Kelly from Nimble Well was producing a photo shoot for upcoming spring and fall trends in table decor, and we collaborated with Julia Franzosa to produce this autumnal spread. Kelly even made this incredible German almond-topped cake (I know because we ate it afterwards) from Smitten Kitchen's recipe to showcase the idea of individual cakes per guest table at a wedding reception.
This is a great way to have Family Style service at your wedding. Each table gets an individual cake, maybe even different cakes for each table. These can be made by family members, or ask your local bakery to create them for you. Then, turn the recipe into a place card / take away for each guest. Family style service is a great way to get to know your table mates, and is my favorite way to serve at a wedding. We served our food this way at our long rectangular tables at my own wedding, and everyone loved the intimate and casual vibe.
