birch bark place cards for barn wedding

our friends, wendy and john, got married this weekend at a gorgeous barn in buckland, ma.  they asked reclaimed crafts to help them create place cards that would fit the day, their earthy aesthetic and be relatively inexpensive.  we created these birch bark place cards by cutting pieces of birch bark, drilling them to create a hole for the raffia to pass through, carefully writing all the guests’ names and table assignments (in this case, because wendy and john are avid skiers, the tables were named for ski mountains), and then hanging them all from some twigs that we placed in reclaimed sap buckets.  we think the results are stunning.  it was wonderful listening in as guests grabbed their cards and commented on how cool it was that it was “real” birch bark.  we hope and expect that these cards will dangle from many a guest’s fridge as a terrific reminder of a perfect autumn day on the farm.

reclaimed crafts would love to help you with all aspects of your wedding or event.  send us an email!

  1. Hi Delilah – Thanks so much for your positive feedback! We don't have an Etsy shop because we are primarily teaching other folks how to create things out of reclaimed, vintage and salvaged items. People who are interested in a green wedding can email us at We'd love to talk to them about creating amazing favors and/or place settings using only recycled and natural. Thanks so much for emailing!
