Pretty paper and cursive calligraphy is nice, but if you are really looking for something special to liven up your dinner table display, try these ceramic place cards from PlaceTile Designs. Available in a variety of styles (and sizes) these little inventions were born from the mind of Kristen Bowen who debuted them at her wedding almost 10 years ago. Now, her company has expanded to include menu cards, bottle stoppers and tableware—all that can easily be written on and erased! Medallion PlaceTile, $33 for 6, placetile.com. —Cari Wolfert
Wedding Wisdom: Too costly to get for all of your wedding guests? Use a few to display the names of the dishes at your buffet station, and place the larger version at the bar with a list of your signature cocktails. Remember to take them home with you after the reception and reuse them for your first dinner party.
