Place cards are the heart of intention. To celebrate that, National Place Card Day™ was created in 2018 by Karen Suen-Cooper and Martin Cooper, the co-founders of The Punctilious Mr. P's Place Card Co. National Place Card Day™ is celebrated annually March 20th, the first day of spring when nature hints at birth and renewal that fuels our desire to gather with those we adore and sit together for a meal.

Our bigger mission is to collectively raise awareness around the benefits of 'meaningful gatherings'— using the place card as the call to action, where one literally and figuratively... has a seat at the table. There's lots to talk about there.

If you share the same passion for entertaining and gathering as we do, we encourage you to join the gang on March 20th, as we celebrate all of the gatherings that have been meaningful to us over the year on Instagram.
