Throwing any dinner parties this weekend? We think that even simple place cards can add a touch of fun formality to a sit-down supper. And how about this whimsical name card idea from reader Jess? Jess threw quite a housewarming party for herself and her boyfriend; we love the sound of the menu! It included fresh figs, heirloom tomato bruschetta with grilled ciabatta, an arugula salad, roasted salmon, and homemade strawberry ice cream! What a summer feast! (Love the flowers, too.)

But we especially loved this little touch: place cards made from Scrabble tiles. Cute! It also shows how you can set a fun, special table without buying anything new. Little place cards like these can bump up a casual dinner party with just one special touch. Do you use place cards at your dinner parties?
