Fun with Place Card Holders


 

A dear friend once gave me these Purse shaped place card holders.  I’m not one to use place cards for my dinner parties, so what else might I use them for?  In my travels I found some super fun Insect place card holders and knowing how I like to do Summer Garden parties, I instantly knew how I would use them.  I would use them on my buffet tables to label my food dishes. 

How often do people ask, what is this dish?    When you rather socialize with your guests then stand by the food table to answer questions, consider using place cards.  For those that have food allergies, this is a terrific way to let them know if it contains nuts, or if the dish is spicy. 

I was delighted to see how receptive my guests were with being able to know the name of the dish they were trying.    They had fun reading the names and yes, drooling over them.   Why you can even be creative in naming something as simple as a veggie tray, now known as the Garden Harvest tray!   Give this a try at your next party!   It’s sure to be a hit!
