In Edwardian times seating cards were known as escort cards because they contained the handwritten name of the lady each gentleman would accompany to dinner. Today they are still used to take the confusion out of sitting down for a meal. Stamps can be used to create seating and table cards so guests can find their places. Instead of labeling each table with a number, give each a constellation (for instance, Orion). Stamp it on a card, and place in a holder. Then guide your guests to their tables by making them seating cards with their table's constellation inside. Stamp the card and fold it; on the bottom half of the outside, hand write the names, and stamp a few stars in silver ink.
