With so many details to consider when planning an event, escort and place cards are one that is often overlooked. If you do pay attention to this small detail, it can be a clever way to tie in your theme and personalize your décor. Combining your place cards with the party favor serves a dual purpose and helps make your guests feel special. Occasions Catering & Special Events can handle this detail for you, creating something unique for your guests to remember your event by.
People often confuse escort cards and place cards with each other or use them interchangeably. There is a difference between the two of them. Escort cards are located in a centralized place, usually a table and they indicate which table each guest is seated at. Guests typically receive their own, or one to a family or couple. Place cards are located at each place setting on the table to indicate where the guest should sit.
Don’t feel limited to using standard paper cards as your escort or place cards. Think of them as one more way to decorate the venue, especially the table. Anything from small plants (succulents would work great for this), to decorative wine stoppers, vintage keys and even feathers help create the atmosphere that you want for your celebration.
And by using small desserts or beverages in lieu of the typical cards, we are sure your guests won’t mind one bit.
