Questions for Stacy: Escort Cards versus Place Cards

Question:

What is the difference between an Escort Card and a Place Card?

 Answer:

Good question: this is a common misunderstanding.  An Escort Card, which lists a guests name (and sometimes their date), is used to direct people to their assigned dinner table.  A Place Card, which lists each guests name individually, is placed at a specified seat at the assigned table  to indicate each guest’s seat.  When a guest has pre-selected their dinner entree, it is particularly helpful to use Place Cards at the event.  Place Cards indicate their entree choice to the waiters, who will easily know where to place each dish.
