If you follow me over on Instagram, you know how much I LOVE escort cards. There’s something about orderly, straight lines that get me all heart eyed.
Before I share some of my favorites, I wanted to talk about the difference between escort cards and place cards. It’s common for people to refer to place cards when they really mean escort cards. Escort cards tell guests at which table to sit and place cards tell guests at which place at the table to sit. The vast majority of Bar Mitzvahs do not have place cards because they are not assigning their guests to specific places at each table.
These starry night escort cards from Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah had the table number assignments on the inside.
A lovely way to accent your escort card display is with photos of the guest of honor like from Shoshana’s Bat Mitzvah.
Don’t feel like you have to display the escort cards on a table! A vertical display like the one from Olivia’s Bat Mitzvah is unexpected and fun!
Is there a way for your escort cards to be on-theme? These bookmark escort cards were a perfect fit for Lindsey’s book-themed Bat Mitzvah party.
And these bone-shaped escort cards were on-theme for Lexi’s dog-themed Bat Mitzvah party.
How cool are these bandana wrapped escort cards from Ilene’s Color War-themed Bat Mitzvah? Each of the bandanas assigned guests to their color war team.
And if you want a place card? These caligraphied paint sets tell all of Talia’s friends where to sit.
Get creative with your escort cards! They don’t have to just be plain, folded tent cards on a table, they can be on-theme, displayed in a creative way or in interesting shapes.
