Did you know there’s a difference between escort cards, seating charts and place cards?  Yep! While many use the terms interchangeably, there are some big differences between the three.  Today we’ll share eight creative seating chart ideas and provide some tips on how to create and organize your seating chart.

What is a Seating Chart?

A seating chart is a simple and organized way for guests to find their name in one place.  You can easily make a seating chart to fit your theme, color and overall style.  A general tip is to organize your seating chart alphabetically by name, numerically by table number or both.  You do this by listing the table numbers, then organize names alphabetically under each number.  It’s as simple as that!
