Celebrations: tart tin place cards

I have a set of vintage tart tins that I haven’t used in years. When you don’t have time to bake, the next best thing is to use your tart tins for place cards.

Here they are in the original box. My mom passed them down to me. She still makes pies and cakes and other goodies but I don’t remember her ever making little tartlets. But based on the condition of the box, it looks like they were well used. 

The little tart tins come in a variety of shapes. Just looking at them makes me want to make some berry tarts. 

In the meantime, these little tins will be used for my holiday place cards. 

I used craft glue to hold down the moss. That way, when I’m done, a good soaking will clean up the tins. I added a few decorative floral berries, a sprig of evergreen and simple black and white place card.

Sweet little tart tin place cards – but not nearly as sweet as homemade berry tarts.

  1. Carolyn these are stunning indeed... Well done and Happy Christmas

  2. Those are super fabulous! I am going to have to pass this idea on to my Mom. Thanks for sharing.

  3. How creative! I love all the place card ideas you always come up with!

  4. I have two tart tins that I found at a garage sale and I love them! I'd been kind of unsure of how I could use them, but you've inspired me. Instead of printing guests names (since I only have two), I will print labels for the food/drink. (Ex, sweet tea, unsweet tea....) Merry Christmas!
