Place Cards

Card or paper, leaves or lemons, dressed up or dressed down; place cards are the best way to let your guests know where to sit!

From luxury cards to plush leather and everything in between. Place cards and escort cards are excellent ways to bring order to your event. Depending on your theme and vibe, there are many options for how to guide your guests to their seats before the feasting begins!

Considering how you can bring a sense of wonder to your tablescape is a great way to elevate your guest's dining experience.

There's an old saying that the first bite is with the eye. This is of course in reference to food. This is due to you probably taking a stab at what it will be like before you even take a bite. But I think you can take this thought one step further and apply it to the surroundings and company you're in before you eat. After all, what might be the most delicious food in the world might be hampered somewhat if it's severed to you on a bin lid while you're sitting in the gutter.

So how do you go about delighting the senses prior to the first course being served? You'll take the time to pick out flowers, napkins, crockery and cutlery. You've probably agonised over the table plan. But what you must keep in mind is the delight people find in their own name. A sound that both resonates and defines a being. And that is how a place card can be a marvel of your tablescape. 

While it's of course possible to have these small slips of card printed, it can be a missed opportunity with so many options at hand. I've known people to keep their calligraphed places cards from an event for a long time, and cherish them! While it might not be recommended to keep personalised fresh fruit or other botanicals for a long time, calligraphed handmade paper, silk, and tassels will last an age and be a way of recalling fond memories for a long time afterwards.

Are you ready to do this?

The possibilities are endless when it comes to place cards, let's explore your options together.
