And part of giving a great party means great planning.
If you're going to be giving a party of any size, you'll want to send out invitations and have some kind of RSVP included so you'll know how many guests you'll have.
You'll take the time to decorate appropriately for the type of party you're having.
You'll take the time to get the food and beverages for the affair.
And, to add just that extra touch and to take care of one more detail, you'll use unique seating cards so everyone will know where to sit.
While some smaller parties probably don't need them, if there's going to be more than 10 or 15 people there, then seating cards can make a big difference in how your party turns out.
Regardless of how informal the party is, having a seating arrangement can accomplish several things such as preventing people who don't like each other from accidentally winding up next to each other.
Also, if you're playing matchmaker, you can place people together in a dinner arrangement that may not have naturally occurred.
And there are tons of ideas you can use for unique seating cards.
While a formal occasion would require seating cards with a more formal flair, having them outfitted with lace or scalloped edges adds a unique flair.
But for more informal occasions, you can be very creative with seating cards.
For instance, at a Super Bowl party, you can use little football shaped cards for seating cards.
And the same goes with most other sports as well.
A World Series baseball party, you can use baseball shaped cards.
World Cup soccer playoffs and championship games would be great for a soccer ball shaped card.
Even birthday parties for children can use place cards that go along with the theme.
Balloons, clown faces, cake shaped cards or even flowers for that little girl's birthday will give you a totally unique and very decorative way to put together a seating arrangement.
The kids will think they're totally cool and it gives them a memento of the occasion to take home.
Most parties will definitely gain something from having unique seating cards because of the fact they are unique.
Seating cards often don't mean much to anyone, but having them extra fancy for formal events or theme based for fun parties means they'll become part of the great memories of the evening.
