Placecard and Favor Ideas for Your Next Dinner Party

Summer is over and the children are in school, so it’s time to plan dinner parties with a few friends. Here are a few favor and placecard ideas to make each soirée fun and different!

We chose inexpensive items and added faux flowers, ribbon and a card to each: a fly swatter from The Dollar Tree; a watermelon from Rouses; a lemon surrounded by a tiny oasis ring of galax and parsley; gardening gloves from Big Lots; and for an option that’s a little more expensive, the single Celebration vase from my collection.

For this cozy table, I found the mosquito netting at IKEA, since the mosquitoes are definitely still here.

All of these placecards and favors could also serve as invitations. Just call friends a week or two before the party to get the group you’d like to have, then a few days before, hand deliver the invitation that includes the date, time, place and exactly what to wear. This idea works well if you’re having six to eight people. Keep the menu simple, turn on great music and you’ll have a success every time!
