Autumn "Place Cards"

Time to start planning your Thanksgiving Tablescape! Here’s one element of the table top that you can cross off your list. Use fresh produce of the season and fashion them into place cards! Apples, pears, mini pumpkins are all great choices but don’t forget about lemons, apricots, and oranges.  Use a paint pen or sharpie marker to write guest’s names directly onto the produce of choice. Or head to the sticker isle of the craft store and spell out the names with adhesive letters.

Cut out some paper leavesand attach them with ribbon or pretty tacks or pins. Write the name on the leaf.

Also simple but clever are these ideas using ribbon (write the name on the hanging ribbon), hang tags, scrolled paper, and little flag (they’re not just for cupcakes!).
Any of these ideas would add such an interesting element to your Thanksgiving table, and they are Eco Chic!

    Great ideas, I love the idea of decorating with fresh fruit too!

    on a side note, I've always wondered – how do you make your collages of pictures? They are a great way to display pictures and steps, I'd love to know if you're willing to share your secret!

  3. Chris @ Celebrations At Home says:

    Kristen, believe me, I am a complete amateur! I use either or to create the collages. I actually enjoy the process of putting them together! : )

    Thanks for reading. Cheers!
