What is a vignette?

Simply put, it is a business card that we place on the table. Most often, it contains the guest's name and surname. Thanks to this, event participants do not take a random seat at the table, chosen by the host. At larger receptions (for example, organized in premises), the vignettes are accompanied by a board with the table layout.

During special events, such as an eighteenth birthday party, we often face the challenge of meeting and integrating people who have not met before.

Organizing a place at the table with business cards allows you to seat guests with similar interests or passions next to each other and can help get the party going.

Advantages of vignettes:

  • No competition for a good seat at the table. Guests can focus on the birthday person and not on choosing a place among their friends.
  • The choice of place imposed in advance may also be a good opportunity to integrate guests who have not had a chance to get to know each other before.
  • Place cards are also useful for the guests themselves, who may not remember the names of all the people at the table. These types of business cards will be useful when addressing unknown guests.
  • Beautifully made and matching the style of the interior, vignettes can be a table decoration in themselves.
  • They can also be a souvenir for guests after a birthday party.

What materials can we make business cards from?

In fact, we can use anything to make vignettes. It is important to match the style of business cards to the main theme of the event (if there is one) or the decoration of the room. We can choose more elegant vignettes, rustic (when the party takes place in the garden) or funny and creative.
