Not everyone loves assigning seats. I actually do. I think it takes a burden off your guests for you to select their seat. You can place people next to or across from one another that you know would love to catch up. You can seat someone next to a person they admire, but have been to shy to talk to. You can draw the conversation in by placing the chattiest people in the center. It’s truly fun to orchestrate seat assignments in a way that you believe will create a meaningful dynamic.
And, as long as you’re assigning seats, you might as well do it with style! Whether you have a gathering of 4 or 24, giving everyone a special place card ensures they know they were expected and that you are excited they are there.
A place for everyone and everyone in their place.
