Party Prepping - Silverware Holders

I am trying to get ready for the next party at the end of April. Planning on about 40 guests so starting work now on scrappy stuff. Color Theme is Pink/Black. {50 and Fabulous}

First up are silverware holders. Part of me wants to tie ribbon and add a tag on these but I have to keep myself in check, remember I need at least 40 and understanding that just by adding ribbon and a tag doesn't necessarily add more functionality..so trying to keep it simple.

I modified a 3 x 4 library pocket card using my Cameo to both lengthen and narrow it. Then I added a birthday cake image so I could have the cake as a cutout and mat some pink paper behind. I think I like the overall look but I am not sure if that is the right placement of the cake what do you think. Should I center it or move it up or move to the other side, I also think this needs a pink scallop border either at the top or the bottom. Opinions are highly welcomed. Oh and I apologize for the photo for whatever reason our weather has decided to be cloudy and muggy when I took this photo.

  1. This is one of my favorite color combos. So pretty! I'd say just a length of ribbon tied around the center would finish it off. Another idea, would be to treat the black background like a chalkboard and write either "50" on them or the guest's names.

  2. I liked the idea of centering it with some pink scalloping at the bottom. It would be cute to get pink silverware too. It would help the cake color to pop.
