A seating chart is a great way to tell guests where to sit. Unlike escort cards, a seating chart requires minimal set up (usually just an easel, though some are free-standing). When listing table assignments, you can either do alphabetically by guest’s last name or by table. Alphabetically is easier for your guests to find their names (so they won’t be standing in front of the sign for too long), but by table often looks more aesthetically pleasing.
Check out some of our favorites below:
Ollie’s Breakfast-themed Bar Mitzvah seating chart played off of his logo. The oversized letters alphabetizing guests names mimic the “O”in his logo.
Jake’s hockey-themed Bar Mitzvah had a seating chart that was part escort card display. Guests could remove their jerseys from the chart to tell them at which table they were seated.
Lily’s Hawaiian Luau-themed Bat Mitzvah seated guests at tables named after the Hawaiian Islands.
Sammy’s Bar Mitzvah had an awards show theme, so his VIP seating chart let guests know at which awards show table they were seated. The frame gave the chart an upscale feel.
