5. Gratitude Place Cards
Your place cards can be as simple or as fancy as you like. An easy way to make your own place cards is to pick up a pack of recycled, unlined index cards, and fold them in half. Voila! Little tented cards that you can set at each place. At the Thanksgiving table, instead of telling folks where to sit try writing a small thought of gratitude on each place card. What a fun surprise for guests!
You can set the cards at each place and keep it simple, or try some of these variations!
Punch a hole in each card, and tie it to a gourd.
Use stamps, stickers, and stencils to decorate your place cards.
Use a decorative hole punch – did you know they come in all kinds of cute, tiny shapes??? – to add some interest.
