Tuesday's Tip


When having guests for dinner, it is wonderful to use place cards. One of our Tampa friends turns his place card so that his name faces the other guests at the table once he has been seated. This is a wonderful idea in a situation where you do not know the names of all of the other guests and they may not know yours. Another delightful idea is to write Mrs. Robertson on one side of the place card and Elizabeth on the other side of the card. The "Mrs. Robertson" side should face your guest and the "Elizabeth" side should face others so that they may call Mrs. Robertson by her first name. I just love this divine idea!

What a great idea! It's always nice to have a visual cue like that, especially in situations where you have just met people.
