Tiny salt and pepper shakers can be used for individual place settings. When entertaining, place one tiny salt shaker and one tiny pepper shaker at each place setting so that each guest has his own shaker. Further decorate the table by making place cards and placing them between the tiny salt and pepper shakers.
Tiny salt and pepper shakers are also used for bulk entertaining. Wedding receptions, banquets and office events require large numbers of place settings, so catering companies and banquet halls often use tiny salt and pepper shaker sets in bulk.
