Escort Cards are commonly tented cards with your guests' names and table number written on it. Commonly placed at the entrance to the reception on a table, pinned to a board, or hanging from a decorative or natural structure, these cards escort your guests to their table. When they get to the table... the guest can either place their card at any place setting at that table if you don't have a preference to where they sit. However, if you have assigned seating at the table, they would then see their Place Card at their place setting, usually on or near the plate or stuck into a place card holder. This card shows your guest where to sit. If your guests have pre selected entrées, a small identifier as to what meal they have chosen may be placed in the corner. A Table Number is a larger card which indicates the number or name of the table. It can coordinate with your existing artwork or theme and can be placed in the center of the table, identifying it. It can be placed in a frame, holder or nestled in one of the floral arrangements.
