Whether you're hosting a dinner party with friends or celebrating an engagement party, bridal shower, or rehearsal dinner in the coming months, it's important that your guests feel special at any event you'll be hosting. One way to ensure this is to elevate your celebration with place cards in order to add a level of formality and attention-to-detail to the event.
While "tent" place cards can stand on their own, many hosts and hostesses choose to provide place card holders. While simple styles exist and are perfectly acceptable to use, we suggest selecting a look that will make a statement or fit with the theme of your gathering to add some personality to the tablescape. For example, consider using flamingo-shaped place card holders for a tropical-themed bridal shower or animal-shaped designs if your wedding is taking place at a zoo or you just love animals. The materials should also be considered and complement the rest of your décor. Will centerpieces featuring flowers in blue-and-white chinoiserie vases be placed next to copper flatware on a marble table? Go with a ginger jar-style place card holder or a style in either marble or a rose-gold or copper hue.
While your wedding planner will likely recommend place card holders provided by the rental companies who will be supplying your dinnerware and glassware, we've compiled some options that you can purchase and use for parties for the rest of your lives together.
