Table names, if you have to seat guests at set places around set tables then you are always going to need a way to name or number the tables. Well don’t have to but it will be much quicker than letting your guests wander around each table until they find the place card with their name on it. So we need a table name or number, it’s pragmatic, almost essential. But it can still be fun. Now this isn’t an article extolling the virtues of names over numbers. I’ve said that plenty of times in places I’m not sure I can remember. See this article on English Wedding Blog.
So taking that you’re going with names depending on the room layout it’s not always necessary to have the table names double sided. So earlier this year two of my great clients decided to have a little fun with it. They each had different backgrounds, one in physics, the other in psychology. So they had decided to use names of famous Physicists and Psychologists as table names. On the back though they wanted to have some fun with facts and so we printed little bits of information they had written. Not all totally true but meant as something to read, maybe raise a little bit of a laugh and get their guests talking.
We dressed these bits of information up to make them look like an encyclopaedia entry. Although we called it a factorium and named it after their surname initials so it is a totally fictional entity, as we were not trying to mislead!
