Though food is one of the biggest highlights of Thanksgiving (mmm, turkey and mashed potatoes!), it’s truly about gathering together with family and friends. And nothing makes a person feel more welcomed to the table than a personalized place card holder with their name inscribed on it.
There are so many different options for creating a festive place setting, everything from fancy to fun, so we rounded up five we think are down-right adorable. And best of all, they’re easy to DIY yourself or as a great project to get the little ones involved.
Using a mini pumpkin is simple, yet pretty and can be easily personalized in a variety of ways, like this example we found on Recipe Girl which uses twine to tie on a cut out paper leaf with each person’s name handwritten on it. Another idea is to create a slice near the stem and insert a name card.
And we think our Falling for Fall Greeting Card is a perfect match!
We absolutely loved everything about this super fun table setting we saw on Sweet Designs by Amy Atlas, but the personalized paper bag turkey leg filled with goodies has us drooling wondering what’s inside – candy corn, popcorn, chocolate??
Pair with a personalize Give Thanks Greeting Card to continue the Thanksgiving fun!
