You design a beautiful dinner table, but there is something you’re missing: place cards. Don’t be convinced that these are unnecessary details for your dinner party table. While they won’t affect the meal, they can help keep your table and your guests organized. Place cards help direct people where to sit at the table, removing the confusion of guests trying to seat themselves. It also allows you to have some control of the party dynamic. You can seat guests who may have things in common or get along well next to each other when they might not choose to do so themselves. Plus, place cards can add a stylish piece of decor to your tablescape. Here are Yellow Bliss Co.’s favorite Thanksgiving place card ideas.

Calligraphy on Leaves
Pretty leaves are a quincentennial part of Fall, so why not incorporate them into your Thanksgiving tablescape? Use real or faux leaves as the base of the place card. Using a metallic calligraphy pen, write the names of each of your guests in the center of the leaf. You can also use metallic paint to color the tips of the leaves to create a glamorous effect. Leaf place cards will also pair well with Yellow Bliss Co.’s Autumn party box!
Mini Pumpkin Pie
Who doesn’t love pumpkin pie at Halloween? These adorable place cards look just like a pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream on top. The piece slices are made from cardstock, so they’ll be sturdy enough to sit up on the plate. Write your guests’ names at the top in a pretty script and place them on their dessert plates to get their mouths watering.

Pumpkins are another symbol associated with Thanksgiving that will make great place cards. You can use real mini pumpkins bought from the store or search for ceramic or plastic ones from a decor store. You can decorate them with paint or leave them natural before writing each guest’s name on the side of the pumpkin. Plus, this will be a cute piece they can take with them and display in their home during the fall.
Fall florals will make stunning place cards on a Thanksgiving table. You can press your own flowers or purchase them already dried. Try pressing delphiniums, strawflowers, and cosmos, along with greenery. You can then glue flowers to place cards or tie them into a little bouquet with a name tag and set them at each place. Guests will love taking these home with them at the end of the night.
