We were asked to bring placecards for Thanksgiving dinner this year, and Emily thought these turned out so cute! She cannot wait to show them to all our family and friends. If your child is old enough to write, this is a great way to get in some handwriting practice. Emily enjoyed learning how to spell all of our relatives names.
Festive Thanksgiving Placecards
November 25, 2009 by
I found votive candles (both the candle and the glass votive holders) came in packs of 12 at Big Lots for $6. They were intended to be used for weddings, but I thought they would work perfectly for Thanksgiving dinner too.
We used card stock in fall colors, and Emily wrote out the names with black marker.
Then, she wanted to decorate the names to make them look fancy!
I used pinking shears on the edges, and a hole punch at the top. Threaded through some ribbon and they were done!
Wishing everyone a very safe and happy Thanksgiving!!
