Simple DIY Thanksgiving Place Cards The Perfect Details.jpg

Thanksgiving is not that far away (21 days but who's counting??) and you have your menu all figured out right? OK, if you're like me, you want everything to look lovely but also be able to do it quickly, right? Well, here are few great (and easy!) ideas for Thanksgiving Place Cards. Some are a little more labor intensive than others but at the end of the day, having everyone around the table to tell them how thankful you are for them is what really matters.

Rosemary Place Card- cutting slits in a card and then weaving Rosemary through it is simple and elegant. You could do this with other woody herbs or maybe even carefully place winterberry through the card for a lovely look.

Edible Cornucopia Place Card - the idea of using a sugar cone on its side to resemble a Cornucopia is just genius. Filling it with candies is even easier! If you wanted to up the ante, you could make Marzipan fruits and veggies to fill your Cornucopia!

Alphabet Soup Letter Place Card - How many times as a kid did you try and spell your name eating alphabet soup? I know I always tried. This brings out the kid in the adult and also delights the kid! We love the idea of keeping it simple or embellishing the card with a little sticker or artwork.
