Author: Jennifer - Internet Sales Coordinator & Team Leader November 2007

Event planning can be a wonderfully difficult task. Whether you are planning your wedding, corporate event, or any type of formal event, the details can make your event even better. If you are like me and need a little help with the small things, then you have come to the right place. Here are a couple of small things that can have a big impact on your event.

Use place cards to add practical style
Not only can you match your place cards to your theme, invitations, flowers, candles, etc. but they are also practical. Anyone who has ever attended a formal event knows how place cards can make the event run smoothly, by giving guests direction on where to sit. Also, it allows you as the event planner to let guests mingle who may not have otherwise socialized. It also helps those who cannot remember names of those that they have met. Place cards also add an element of class for formal or informal events, and come in a wide variety of colors and themes.

Consider an Envelope Seal
Many of our invitations have coordinating envelope seals that are inexpensive and add a fun touch to your invitation. Envelope seals come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, from silver and gold, to pearlized or colorful. Our latest envelope seals can be printed with a photograph of your choice- a great option for wedding invitations!

Use a Menu Card for a touch of elegance
Menu cards are a stylish way to let your guests know what is on the menu for the coming meal. These also have elements of style, from a monogram to a theme. For whatever reason, menu cards will make your guests feel like they are at a red carpet event, and are a great way to add to the atmosphere of your event, and a detail that your guests are sure to notice.

Napkins add a simple touch
Invitation Consultants has napkins in a variety of colors, which can be used for corporate events, weddings, birthday parties, etc. These napkins are a great touch, as napkins can be printed with a design and wording of your choice. Napkins can be printed with a monogram, motif or simply with wording. Napkins are great for cocktail hours or parties, as you can create an artistic napkin spread at the bar. The simple touch of a printed napkin is subtle, but adds to the excitement of your event.

No matter what event that you are planning, do not under-estimate the impact that details can have on the overall feel of your event. In addition to the elements listed above, consider adding favors at each place setting to give your guests a small souvenir of your big event. By adding these small touches, your guests are sure to take notice. These seemingly "small details" can really add up and make an impression on your guests that they will not soon forget.
