5 Thanksgiving Place Card Ideas

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Is your turkey ordered, your grandmother's silver polished and the centerpiece selected? Here are 5 great ways to further personalize your table:

1. Pine cone perfection
We wrote the name on a natural colored tag and tied it with double face satin ribbon.

2. Tea for two
An ornately shaped sticker imprinted with a name and glued to the back of a Tea Forte Hazlenut Truffle Duo is a seating card and favor combined.

3. Place card menu
We printed the guest's name at the top, added a turkey image along with the menu listing and finished it off by gluing the menu to a patterned backing.

4. Rustic chic
Wood grained paper, kraft card stock and a simple sticker are all you need to whip up an easy napkin wrapper.

5. Mark your seat and your book!
This place card doubles as a book mark to be used while curling up by the fire with a good read after the big meal. It couldn't be simpler - patterned card stock printed with a name and tied with ribbon!
