I am doing assigned seating. We will have painted windows holding the escort cards at the front of the reception location. My issue arises at the actual tables. I am having round tables that seat 8 with lace runners. each place setting will include a big and small vintage china plate, silverware wrapped in yellow napkins, a menu card (on top of plates), a chocolate army favor (on top of plates) and a mason jar to drink out of.
Here are my two questions-how do I display the place card at each spot. I already have so much at each place setting. I was thinking of tying them to the mason jars but Im afraid that they wont be seen. There is already so much on top of the plates Im not sure if it would fit. The second question is regarding the table centerpieces that I designed (pic attached). The mason jars will have hydrangeas in them and the chalkboard frames will have the names of each table (named after Army bases). My concern is once the drinking mason jars etc are placed on the table that the table names wont be seen. Should I elevate the entire centerpiece and if so any suggestions on what to use that wont clash with the colors used in the centerpieces
