Cool Idea: Leaves Placecards

I saw this cute idea for placecards over at Another Shade of Grey and couldn't help but pass it along. I feel . . . what's it called? dumb for not thinking of this first, but that's life. My life at least. Just pick some fallen leaves up from your own backyard or neighborhood, the most colorful ones you can find, and use a paint pen to write the names of your guests. If you don't already own one, you can snatch up paint pens in a wide range of colors and metallics at your local art store for under $3. Or, if you're artistic, you could attempt to paint leaves with real paints: not as easy. I love the way these leaves pop against the white plate, so I'd suggest either laying it on a white tablecloth or napkin, or directly on your dinner plate, although that's not as cleanly. What do you think? Cute, right?

i don't know if i would use fallen leaves. i think you might try some out before hand and see what happens. reason being, we collected some really beautiful HUGE fallen leaves last weekend and we took them home. within a few hours the leaves had crinkled up and were so brittle you wouldn't have been able to write on them and they were literally falling apart.
