So Many Choices for PlaceCards!

This year, we are hosting Thanksgiving Dinner at our house.  Both Mike and I come from very small families... he's an only child;  I have one sister.  So, inviting BOTH sides of the family to come only doubles our number... our six, my sister and her husband, my parents, and Mike's parents.

Nonetheless, we want to be festive and set a pretty table.  I've been trying to find a cute idea for place cards for my kids to make.  Wow!  The choices!

Here are a few of my favorites I've found on Pinterest.

Use pumpkins (why not... they are everywhere!):

You can use the pumpkin as a pinboard to pin the name card.

Just write the name directly onto the pumpkin....

... or just an initial.

Tie on a paper-tag name tag.

Use Found Items around Your House:

Spraypaint a clothespin and attach a simply berry sprig.

Slice corks to lay flat and put a slice at the top for the card...

 A toothpick-flag in a clementine?

Use nature and attach a tag!

Get Crafty:

For the Kids' Table:

Make a Mayflower.

Fill a container with M&Ms and decorate...

 Make a paper pumpkin.

 ...or this way.

Make a 3-D Turkey.

Make pilgrim hats from pots.

Make a wheat stack.

Do you have any other ideas?  
Too many adorable choices!!!


  1. I've made the little pilgrim hats with the terra cotta pots before...they're really cute!!

  2. All of these are super cute! Can't wait to see what you decide.


Please leave a message... I would love to hear from you!
