Serving Trays: Imagine the surprise when your guests first see tree slices used as platters for butlered hors d’oeuvres at cocktail hour.

Cake Stand: A large tree stump or tree slab is a base that brings attention to that beautiful tiered wedding cake.

Station Set-up: Tree stumps in varying heights create a captivating display at your food station at the reception. In fact, large tree slices can be used as charger plates for a sit-down dinner.

Ring Bearer Pillow: Soft satin pillows can make wedding rings slide off without a vigilant ring bearer. However, rings can rest easy down the aisle on a sturdy slab of wood.

Place Card Holders: These guest place cards will not only direct friends and family to their seats but are interesting enough to be a conversation piece. Guests will enjoy their souvenir to take home as well.

Decorative Table Numbers:  Fancy stamping or decorative skills on a tree slice can bring table numbers grand appeal for a rustic wedding in Philadelphia.

Guest Book: Have each guest sign one large slab to display at home where you can admire inspirational words without having to open a page.

Signage: Interested in directing your guests to what menu items are at your buffet or signature drink station. Wood slices make truly unique signs when most signage consists of chalkboards.
