Thanksgiving isn’t just another dinner party, it’s the meal of the year. Thanksgiving rivals (and sometimes wins over) Christmas in my house. I love the fall colors and the spiced scents, of course the food includes something for everyone. It’s the time for everyone to come together, but sometimes that means the crowd gets a little crazy.
Whether you have separated spouses, awkward in-laws or more children than supervisors, a seating chart provides several benefits. Seating cards can also add a beautiful element to the table décor. Here are some of my favorite Thanksgiving seating cards to impress your guests.
I love this idea of creating custom napkin rings with just a little bit of cardstock. A beautiful inexpensive place card that plays double duty as a napkin and flatware holder.
If you’ve got trees, you’ve got seating cards. Use a little metallic spray paint and a black marker to glam them up a bit before the big day.
Keep it simple and rustic with a beautiful card and a single sprig of wheat for added style.
How cute are these personalized candy-filled boats? My kids would love these, and it gives a nice homage to the pilgrims and their important role.
Curb hungry appetites by giving everyone a clementine to start out with at the table. Wrapped up beautifully and easy to put together for a crowd.
I love this idea of beautiful metallic paper cut out to mark each seat. This would be easy with access to a Cricut or Silhouette cutting machine.
Skip the name and find your face instead – what a fun way for everyone to find their spot I especially love this idea for the kids table.
Paper isn’t the only way to create a seating card, tie white fabric to the stem of each glass and use permanent marker or fabric pens to ink each name.
Who knew that rocks could be so beautiful. This is a great project for kids to gather rocks of similar size and shape, wash them up, and paint names on with a brush or paint marker.
Use what you have by making great use of pinecones that are probably already lying around the house.
Metallic spray paint transforms a basic clothespin into a beautiful holiday accent.
How cute are these little pilgrim hats?! These definitely require a little time and planning ahead, but I absolutely love the idea.
