I think for young boys you can write “Master” and for young girls “Miss”.

Are they younger kids and are they sitting at the same table with their parents?

If so, I would put Mr. and Mrs. Bob Smith & Family or

Mr. and Mrs. Bob Smith
Carson Smith
Sally Smith

I put: Mr. & Mrs. Bennet & Kitty……1

But we only have two relatives bringing one child each. If you have many children, I think & Family would work better.

Bumping this old thread because I’m wondering the same thing. Have people had more experiences with this? & If it’s a single mom with 1 child did you just say Ms. Jane Smith & Johnny (Mother and son) or would you list separately? And if so, Master & Miss?

DancinDarlin: Personally for a seating chart, I would address each person separately on a line of their own, such as:

Mr Bob Smith

Mrs Jane Smith

Johnny Smith (boys don’t have a title. I wouldn’t use “master”)

Or if you don’t want to do that, then perhaps you could address them the same way as you did on the invite. I personally don’t like “and family” because children are still people in their own right, in the same way I don’t like “Mr and Mrs Bob Smith” because women don’t belong to their husbands, though traditional etiquette would say that it’s correct.

“Mr Bob, Mrs Jane and Johnny Smith”, or if they’re single with a child:

“Ms Jane and Johnny Smith”, or in the case of a girl:

“Ms Jane and Miss Sally Smith”, or if they don’t have the same surname as their child:

“Ms Jane Smith and Miss Sally Jones”.
