and see what I’m bringing to the table ®
FOR THE LOVE OF FAMILY . . .
Ahhhh family gatherings . . . you ALL know how that goes . . . No matter how close . . . or not . . . it all boils down to the pecking order! Come on, you know the pecking order, as in who gets to sit where. Not to mention those few skirmishes, involving a few of the relatives that are on the ‘not speaking to so and so’ list.
For one dinner party, I used the Kings, and Queens from the four suits in a couple of decks of playing cards. Matching up guests to the coloring of the different suits, as in blond to hearts, grey to diamonds, darker coloring to spades, and medium coloring to clubs. The guests’ names were then printed in my best of the best printing across the top … of course!!!
It would be far worse if . . . everyone is left standing, needing to fend or fight for their preferred place. This is where the jockeying begins . . . as a few desperately try to avoid one or more persons . . . while at the same time attempting to secure . . .’THE’ coveted seat of choice. As to the coveted seat of choice for some . . . the far and few between lefty. Yes, the lefty who when put in the middle of the pack finds it all but impossible to eat . . . So please be kind to those who need a little consideration and TLC!
Place cards, while a bit regimented, do serve an obvious stressless purpose. To move from the stiff and stuffy . . . I offer a few tried, and true, out of the box alternatives. For one dinner party, I used mini note cards with envelopes. Each card had person’s name, as well as, we are happy that you have joined us this evening. I tucked part of the mini note into the envelope, allowing the message with guest’s name to stick out.
