Making elegant place cards for Thanksgiving offers you a great way to add beautiful table decorations, as well as showing your guests where they are supposed to sit. You can make your own Thanksgiving place cards this year, with a few simple tips.
First, if you are not particularly good with calligraphy, don't worry. You can actually print out a number of excellent Thanksgiving place cards from the Internet. However, if you really want to add beauty and elegance, hand lettered cards are the best way to go. Start by choosing the right paper – it should be something elegant and timeless. High quality stationary is available that will work quite well, and you can find paper specifically made for this purpose.
For a very simple, yet elegant, Thanksgiving place card, you can simply write the individual's name on the card in cursive and underline it with a flourish. You can also combine your place cards with the place setting. For instance, you might have an elegant beverage awaiting each guest. You simply lean the Thanksgiving place card against the glass or goblet to complete the look.
You can also add to the beauty of your Thanksgiving place cards by using ribbon on them. You can tie the color of the ribbon into your placemats, or into your centerpiece if you like, to give it all a cohesive feel. Making beautiful place cards for your guests is a great way to add decorations that serve a purpose and welcome your guests into your home during the holiday season.
