Thanksgiving Place Cards


It's always fun to do a little project to make the Thanksgiving table a bit more special...
other than getting out the good tablecloth and napkins
and Granny's gravy boat...which I don't have
This year I thought...why not make some place cards?

Using old graphics is one of my favorite things and you really can't
 duplicate the charm of old illustrations

We have pine cones

and Puritans

Houses 

and Hens

But I decided I really like this little Oak leaf

Here is how the place card laid out for printing....
I printed out mine on heavy card stock brown kraft paper

If you would like a set for your own table
just click here
 and print it out!



I used my table top paper cutter for a nice clean edges...

The cards seemed to be missing a little color so I added a little sprig from the olive tree
 but raffia or ribbon would be great too

Happy Turkey Day

  10. You read my mind...I was going to look for good clipart today to do just that! Thanks for saving me the time. By the way I am glad to see Millie gets her own proper place setting! Happy Thanksgiving I bet your table will be beautiful! It is supposed to be in the 70's here so I bet it will be heavenly in Ojai! Dinner in the garden?

  11. Hi there, so sorry for the problem...I think it's now fixed and should pop up as a printable PDF file, but I'm new to this file sharing thing so I might just give up!

  12. Kelley,
    Thanks for this. I didn't have any trouble but you have to save the image as a PDF file before opening it to print. I think your ideas are always wonderful and I truly appreciate you're generosity and sharing.
    Enjoy your Thanksgiving.
