I love the Graphics Fairy site. Love, love, love her stuff.
The other day, I saw some of her vintage Thanksgiving images and thought to myself, “Self, those would make fabulous name place cards for my Thanksgiving Table.”
So, I made up some. And, I’m sharing them with you, Dear Reader.
Here is the Vintage Thanksgiving Dinner Place Cards PDF file. Simply click on the link, print them on card stock, cut them out, write the names on the cards, fold them, and set them by the dinner plate.
Smashingly easy, eh?
Of course my creative juices didn’t stop there. Oh no!
I decided I wanted to have some centerpieces. They had to be easy and inexpensive because I know that if they weren’t I wouldn’t get anything created by Thursday. Which is just 2 days away.
Well, I had some glass thingies from Ikea. I put candles in them and sprinkled some candy corn around them. Quite festive looking if I do say so myself.
(However, I do think that I will add a tad more candy corn to them on Thanksgiving Day.)
My creative juices didn’t stop there, either!
I had saved some interesting shaped bottles that were whining to be used. I decided to fill them with popcorn and add some candles to them and use them as a table centerpiece, too.
I wish I had some raffia to tie around the tall skinny bottle. Maybe even the tall round one. I thought I had some but I couldn’t find it. (Organizing my craft supplies ought to be on my to-do list . . .)
