Dear Mr N
We're trying to create our seating and table plans, what ideas do you suggest that’s a bit different?
Escort cards are a fun talking point and really move away from the over-done seating plan. You can present escort cards in numerous ways from trees to moss covered notice boards. Or even have models handing the cards out, along with a buttonhole. Naturally a male model for lady guests and female models for gentlemen guests, this ensures a little cheeky flirt may take place!
But whatever you do please don’t name your tables after places you’ve visited, your favourite pets, or famous people. It’s been overdone and become rather tiresome. Just simply name your tables numerically. Another no-no would be those ghastly tall silver number holders, which will make your venue end up looking like a bingo hall. Instead insert them in table frames, or have waiters hold up a large ornate stand by each table.
