place cards
Place cards
  • The name of each person should be written on a separate card
  • The place cards are usually put above the plate on the tablecloth, but some people put them on top of the napkin because they are more easily read.
  •   The place cards are usually about 4cm in width (height) and 5 cm in length, sometimes slightly larger.
  • A family crest may be placed on the place card
  • Nothing other than a crest must ever be put on a place card; and usually the crests are plain.
