Mitzvah Inspire: Where Are We Sitting?


When your guests enter your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration, one of the very first things they will do is to check on their table assignment. They want to know who will be sitting at their table and where their table is located.

We recently stumbled upon such clever solutions to table cards and just had to share.


Please enjoy these examples below and get inspired…

Every few months we come across some very creative ideas for seating cards, some are even DIY ideas. Take a look at what we recently found below:


Ana Dolan

We found pictures of guests in lollipop form coming out of mini cupcakes on Ana Dolan’s Website Invitations by Ana. The photo is by Jen Huang, cupcakes by Nine Cakes and it was styled by Tammy Golson Events

This chart was Melangerie’s answer to the escort card table. Why not have your family in purple, Mitzvah child’s friend’s in brown, your college friends in green, etc. Customize the chart with colors your child likes and you have a keepsake!
