Give Thanks in Style: Thanksgiving Place Cards

By -

Looking for a way to style your Thanksgiving table this year?

 

Let Kris guide you through the creative process to wow your guests!

 

Create place cards for your guests to both organize your seating and add a new element to your table design this year. From wine corks to fruit to pine cones, you can find items from around your house and yard to make your Thanksgiving table stylish without headache or expense. Here are some ideas to get you started:

1. Stationary Cards

A lot of craft stores including Michael’s and A.C. Moore sell place cards for weddings and other events with easy to follow instructions for printing at home. Or you could purchase paper to make your own cards. By adding different elements like leaf cut-out or a turkey image, you can make your cards a little fancier than a regular place card.

2. Fruit

 

During the fall season, lots of beautiful fruits are in season. Adding apples, pears or oranges to your place cards can be a great way to give you guests something healthy to take home with them and dress up your table for the season. 

3. Pumpkins & Gourds

Going along with the fruit idea, use what is in season! Pumpkins and gourds are perfect place card additions for Thanksgiving and you can usually find them for cheap almost anywhere! Instead of the traditional orange color, try to find something different to match your table like these miniature white pumpkins or glitter pumpkins in fall colors.

4. Berries, Branches, Pine Cones or other Nature Supplies

A lot of items that can be used for your place cards can probably be found in your yard, woods or neighborhood. Using old branches, berries or wood can give your Thanksgiving table a rustic feel and is very inexpensive to put together.

5. Wine Corks

Having a wine & cheese kind of Thanksgiving? Use old corks to display your place cards! You may have to enjoy a couple bottles between now and next Thursday to collect the corks or head to the craft store to pick up a bag.
