This is the Formal Box
So I just ordered these chalkboard pots from Pottery Barn. I think they would make great Escort Cards, Place Cards and Favors. 3 in 1! You can write your guests name and table number/name on each pot and fill with herbs or any other small plant. I bet the pictures of all of these lined up at the entrance to your reception would look amazing.
I used these Place Card Holders at my wedding and they looked fantastic. You can buy them at several different stores but I got mine at one of my favorite stores Uncommon Goods. They also have the wine cork candles that fit inside the wine bottle.
