Place cards are a great way to not only inform your guests where they are sitting for the evening, but if you do it just right, they can serve as a piece of memorabilia for them to remember your party by. For the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, turn your idea of a traditional place card (i.e. a boring, plain piece of paper) upside down with vibrant, colorful photo place cards instead.
Give the season's guest of honor—the turkey—a prime spot on the plate without having to cook him!
Some fruits, like cranberries and pumpkins, are immediately reminiscent of the season, and the color of these cranberries could easily be woven into the rest of your table decor.
Isn't this carved pumpkin beautiful? Imagine it printed on a cream, gold-rimmed card and placed next to a colorful cloth napkin.
Who says dessert needs to come after dinner? Whet your guest's appetite with a vision of the food they're about to enjoy. (Who doesn't have at least ONE kind of pie at Thanksgiving?)
