Talk Bubble Place Setting

diy talk bubble stationaryAs a lifelong event planner I have a special place in my heart for for unique place settings. It’s such a simple way to add a little flair to a dinner party (or even just a Sunday supper with your family). Since a DIY setting is easiest if you can use items you have laying around the house, or in this case the office ,I dreamed up a cheeky little idea using binder clips and FREE printable that you can download and use for your next party!
