HELP!! I just found out that at our sit down dinner we need to indicate to the wait staff what each guest ordered. We are NOT doing a seating chart and on our RSVP’s it is just indicated how many of each entree for each family/guest is needed. I need a simple way to have each guest have something at their place setting to let the wait staff know chicken or fish. Any suggestions??

I am doing place cards and the boarder indicates the choice; black line for beef, pink line for chicken, dotted line for kids meal. I did not have each guest put their name and choice, so I don’t know who wants what. I just know that the Smith’s want one chicken and one beef. Hope this helps. I have also seen a ribbon color used and tied to the place card.

Colored ribbons or a single colored flower on the plates? Different color something!

That’s tough. Normally I would say that you should use escort cards without table numbers on them and color code to signal menu choice to the servers. However, if you don’t actually know who is doing what, that becomes impossible.
Can you make a pile of cards that say Beef and fish or whatever the entree choices were and have guests grab them and take them to their seats? That may not be the best solution, but it’s all I can think of at the moment.
