This idea makes me think of a globe guest book (they did that, too!), so it’s a whole package deal with the travel theme.

Kristen and Bryan‘s New Year’s Eve wedding had a whole lotta fun, geeky details, but we are loving the LEGO minifig place cards. They’re easy to make, easy to grab and take, and totally a fun way to seat your guests, nerd-style.
