{Entertaining} Vintage Key Place Cards

Miss High School's Sweet 16 party was Vintage Glam Halloween-Hollywood Tower Hotel themed and perfect for her October birthday. {See her Repurposed Bird Cage turned card holder here.}  She liked the idea of keys as place cards for her guests.
We ordered the keys on ebay in bulk because of her large guest list. They arrived quite rusty, as in get all of over your nice outfit,rusty.  We wanted to keep the vintage look but not ruin everyone's clothing.
 I sprayed them with a matte acrylic sealer. I gave them a couple of coats and turned them over to coat each side.  That did the trick!
She attached the keys to the gift tags we found at Ikea and added her guests' names in gold Sharpie. As the guests arrived, they found their "room key" and picked where they wanted to sit at the tables. They also got to take them home as a sweet memento from her party.

Let's Keep in Touch!

Great idea. I think the rust only added to the 'vintage' feel of the party. Great idea to keep the rust and acrylic seal them
