Setting the Thanksgiving table might be as important as cooking the turkey in T.W.O.’s family. Much time is spent deciding on the linens, decorations, dinnerware, stemware, silverware, AND place cards. By having place cards on the dinner table, each guests feels even more special that this setting was created just for them and it cuts down 5 minutes of the seating process since you already know where you are sitting! So this year, we have “T.W.O.” ideas on how we will be displaying our guests’ names on the table.
Gather some autumn leaves of your choice. Take a black sharpie and write the name of each guest’s name on the leaf. Next, situate the leaf, as you would like at the place setting.
Gather “spiky balls” from liquid amber trees, particularly the green ones. Cut long, rectangular labels out of construction paper. Next, write the guest’s name on each rectangle and punch a hole at the end of the paper. String raffia through the hole and tie to the stem of a “spiky ball.” Situate each nametag as you would like at the place setting.
