iced sugar cookies - Gone are the days when escort cards served only as a way for guests to find their seats. DIY escort cards can be interactive and innovative in a multitude of ways. Bake cookies ahead of time and freeze them. You can bake different cookies for different tables or write table numbers on them in icing. If you make cupcakes, create your own pennant flags out of two toothpicks and some recycled paper for a trendy topper.
