I like to add little extra touches to the table when having guests over. I don't usually do big center pieces or fancy place settings. However, a personalized place card or a nice little tag labeling the food items is something easy we can all add without much extra work. I've designed a printable place card you can use to create your own custom labels and name cards. Just download the art file, print on whatever color paper that you choose and add extra embellishments if you'd like.
Bonus! These place cards can be edited to use a typed label or name just by editing in Adobe Reader.
I love the brown and white home decor accents, so I just print out my place cards on a nice white card stock. I added a little glitter and ta dah! You could print on brown paper or patterned paper or whatever you like. Use a metallic marker and trace over the lines to create a hand drawn accent. You don't have to use these cards for Thanksgiving, they sure would make an nice added detail to your table for any occasion!
These place cards also include editable fields you can fill out using Adobe Reader so you don't have to hand write your cards. You can use them to make food labels or name cards or maybe an inspirational quote.
Printable Place cards for Fall
The printable comes with 6 mini leaves you can use in your decorating too. I added glitter to these and just placed them around the table like big confetti.
I'm sharing a little trick over at The Country Chic Cottage for how I like to add glitter to decor accents like this. Check out the Thanksgiving place cards. This project also coordinates with the Fall Leaf Garland and Autumn Leaf Decor (napkin rings too!).
I also have a set of printable label shapes you can use as is, print as stickers you cut out or even use them as stencils to make labels and other decor.
