Isn’t November fabulous? I have already been looking at scrumptious recipes to serve for Thanksgiving dinner and enjoying these last moments of fall. Placemats [2] would be the perfect base for any Thanksgiving feast. I’ve created two Thanksgiving placemat ideas to share with you. Download the files and order yours on Shutterfly.

These place mats from Shutterfly are amazing. They are nice and thin with a smooth surface. They are perfect for kids. If there are spills just wipe clean. Way better than cloth placemats that have to be washed.

The first design is a funky fall pattern that reminds guests to Give Thanks.

The orange, brown and yellow hues reflect the beauty of fall inside and out. I love the nod to fall without being too literal.

Add your own dishes and little pumpkins to add an extra special touch to your thanksgiving placemats.

The second design is full of fun fall stripes. I love stripes they are so classic. This design will work for years and years to come. Plus the quality is so great that they will outlast all the wear and tear.

Add some burlap to your place setting as a table runner [3], napkin ring or just between the plate and bowl. This added texture screams fall and adds dimension to an ordinary place setting. Think layers. Placemats, plates, bowls, it all makes it that much more beautiful.

Set out the placemats all November as an easy way to decorate. They could work on an entry table with pumpkins or antique books to enhance the beauty of the placemats. Another great idea would be a vase of fall leaves or flowers next to a pumpkin on top of a placemat.

You can download my two placemat designs here [4] and here [5] and then upload to Shutterfly to order your own placemats [2]. Or create your own using family photos. Happy Creating and Happy Thanksgiving!
