Magnetic Seating Charts & Escort Card Boards – Think Decorative Tin Tiles!
We so loved Ceiling Tile Ideas concept of using tin ceiling tiles as magnetic seating charts or escort card boards for weddings, mitzvahs, quinceaneras, sweet sixteens, anniversary and every celebration, we decided to feature it here. The best part is that the tile can be painted to coordinate with your party decor. The pictures below, featured on Ruffled , are great for a manor or vintage style wedding, but the decorative metal tile idea is extremely versatile and will work equally well with any style even an art deco or modern look.
Simply paint this tin ceiling tile any color you wish (or leave it natural) and make your own vintage looking magnet by attaching stick-on magnets to these elegant diamond filigree connector links >> Queen Victoria #1204 Tin Ceiling Tile | Diamond Filigree Conncector Links | Stick-On Magnets
Just one caveat and a few details – be sure to order the tin plated steel tiles and then paint them yourself. (The aluminum tiles will not hold a magnet). Also, I just spoke with Milan over at DecorativeCeilingTiles.net and he said not to worry about the order minimums – he will take good care of Party Idea Pros visitors. These tin tiles measure 24″ x 24″ – the perfect size for a large magnet board with three hung or lined up against a wall probably enough space for seating for a medium size wedding. Additionally, many of the tiles are also available in 24″ x 48″ if you are hosting a large event or have a particularly long and thin vertical or horizontal space.
