Quick and Easy Thanksgiving Place Cards

Thanksgiving is hands down my most favorite holiday.   I love everything about it!…the warm and wonderful smells coming from the kitchen the parade on television and most of all, the gathering of friends and family around the table to share good food, laughter, and our thankfulness for the blessings of another year past.

We always set the table in the dining room for birthdays and holidays, as it was an opportunity for our sons to practice their table manners.

I love cloth napkins!  There’s so much variety and they’re eco-friendly as well. Adding a pretty wrap and name tag makes them even more special.

Since we live in the sub-tropics, autumn leaves aren’t readily available but it you have them, do use them!

To save money, I used a craft store coupon to purchase a fall garland.  This gave me lots of beautiful leaves and embellishments for just a few dollars.

I simply clipped off some of the leaves/embellishments, then wrapped them May Arts Paper Cord.  Another wrap around the napkin, a simple handwritten tag and done!  Beautiful, easy and economical thanks to May Arts Ribbon!
