Ceramic Place Cards...This Week's Find

This week’s find is this sweet set of place cards. They are ceramic with lovely, delicate porcelain flowers in pink, yellow, and blue. As with so many things I have uncovered, I never remember my mother using these. That’s not to say that she didn’t, it’s just to say that I don’t recall if she did.
What these have me wondering, though, is whether or not people still use place cards?  I can actually envision myself using them, but I’m wondering what type of non-permanent marker would work on ceramic. If any of you have any suggestions or ideas, I would appreciate knowing.
To my great disadvantage, these are rather small, only about 2½ inches wide. To my further disadvantage, my hands are quite large, so I think it would be tricky for me to use these to write a name longer than three or four letters. Still, I will not be deterred! You can expect to see these at a table setting at some point in the future.

I would think a dry erase marker or grease pencil (china marker) would work. Those are quite sweet!

If the marker does not work you could use the small peel on letters by the stencils at your favorite craft store. If the name is too long you could just use their initials.

Pattie those are precious. I looked on Amazon and in the many results that popped up, these had good reviews: "The Original Wine Glass Markers - Set of 5 Wine Markers" for 9.99, and the the description reads "easy erasable".

What sweethearts you all are for your wonderful suggestions! I am definitely going to make use of these place cards, and in addition to getting markers, I am going to try the suggested “peel on/off” lettering. Now I can’t wait to use them. Stay tuned!

So adorable!! Maybe you could use them for initials?

Initials are a good idea too, Debbie. You all are so clever!
