AR­RANGE THE SEAT­ING

Country Sampler Holiday Homes December 2018 - - Holiday Basics - DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY LAU­REN SHAVER OF BLESSERHOUSE.COM.

Seat­ing cards or place tags are a nice touch re­gard­less of the event’s for­mal­ity. Unique seat­ing cards make your guests feel spe­cial and pro­vide di­rec­tion so they won’t have to make any de­ci­sions. In­stead, they can fo­cus on sim­ply hav­ing a good time.

PLAN AHEAD.

A seat­ing plan can pre­vent awk­ward sit­u­a­tions and pro­mote up­beat con­ver­sa­tion. Note each guest’s per­son­al­ity and place them next to oth­ers they will likely click with.

GIVE A GIFT.

Seat­ing cards can serve dou­ble duty as place tags and party fa­vors. At­tach each card to a small gift or treat for each guest to take home as a re­minder of the lovely evening.

Get Crafty

Be as cre­ative or sim­ple with the seat­ing cards as you’d like. A small tag with an at­trac­tively writ­ten name will do, like these sub­tle cards from Lau­ren Shaver of Bless’er House. Or let them shine as larger con­tribut­ing pieces to the ta­ble decor.

KEEP IT CO­HE­SIVE

Be sure the seat­ing card and party fa­vor stay within the theme of your ta­ble to cre­ate a co­he­sive look.
