I am LOVING our Southern escort card challenge so far, aren’t you? Up next we have a super-creative entry dreamed up by Sarah of daisies & pearls and photographed by Meredith Perdue. I love that they used something so Southern — so Carolina, in fact — but also unexpected. These escort cards would be sure to get your party moving!

From Sarah:

“What is a Southern fete without Carolina Beach Music? This series of escort cards celebrates the music of yesteryear and the famous Carolina Shag. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s Dance Diagrams, the basic Shag step is broken down for both male and female guests. The titles of Carolina Beach songs take the place of traditional table numbers. Perhaps the actual song albums could designate each table in an entire design scheme. The escort cards are hand drawn on cotton card stock using a graphite transfer technique. They are befittingly arranged on the quintessential Southern house shutter.”

    This idea is SO creative, I love it! Not only does it capture the essence of the Genteel South (dance cards!!!), it uses the escort card to set the stage for the festivities ahead. Kudos to Daisies & Pearls and Meredith Perdue!

    Being from New England I had no idea that the shag was an actual dance! Shag has always been one of my favorite movies. I love that Sarah incorporated something so fun, retro and something all party guests could enjoy. This one is my favorite!
