Floral frogs typically inhabit vases, where their job is to keep flowers standing upright. But they work just as well as place-card holders, and their shape resembles tiny tufts of grass, perfect for springtime table settings. You can find the frogs at floral shops, flea markets, or online. Then use our template to fashion cards from glassine or vellum paper, creasing them lengthwise for a naturally leaflike appearance.
