Six Last-Minute Place Card Ideas for Thanksgiving

If you have no idea what to do for dinner place cards, we have the simple and cute solution for you here. We found these ideas from At Home and thought we should share this with you!

+ Pine cones and acorns are in abundance at this time of year. Pair them with a note of gratitude – either handwritten or printed on card stock – for a thoughtful place card option.

+ Simple is often the most sophisticated. Crisp leaves get a glittery touch by writing your guest’s names in gold ink in these two very different tabletop looks. The high contrast of sculpting your own conifers against a brown leaf – like Kate Pruitt did for Design*Sponge– is fresh and contemporary.

+ Miniature pumpkins are a versatile option for festive Thanksgiving decorating. Use a harvest-hued marker to write guest names on chic miniature white pumpkins, they layer them at each setting with a pretty napkin and scatter a few leaves. Alternatively, guests can claim their spot at the table with personalized flags created from festive ribbon or card stock. Cut them to size, glue them to a toothpick and stick in a gourd or pumpkin.
+ The Pilgrim caps were done by painting little miniature terracotta flowerpots.

+ The warm, tone-on-tone approach of writing the name on a simple leaf is more suitable for a casual gathering with friends.

I really love the idea of painting little terracotta flowerpots and leaves as place cards for a Thanksgiving dinner. Decorating for Thanksgiving just gets more fun and crafty! Which idea would you take?
