Why Every Tablescape Should Include A Name Card

Whether for a formal occasion or a casual one, adding personal touches throughout a dinner party is important. It makes your guests feel as if extra care was taken to welcome them into your home; it makes them feel warm; and it sets the tone for what is to come. One of the most common ways to personalize a table is a name card. It may seem like a simple touch, but it is one that will light up every invited guest.

Glorious Giftable: Another way to personalize your table is to allow the name cards to also act as favors. Tying name tags to a small vase filled with seasonal flowers makes for the perfect keepsake from an event. Or, purchase small name card holders and add a few faux florals or fun accents to create a name card that guests will be excited to bring home at the end of the evening. Another great idea? Let your guests take home a piece of the party! Fill mason jars with candy, homemade dip or even a batched cocktail so they can reflect fondly on their night the next day.
