Simple Place Card Settings for Holiday Entertaining
Here are some simple place card settings that you can make in a jiffy.
This pear place card is perfect for a Fall party or for Thanksgiving and extremely easy to make. I bought inexpensive foam pears and pinned a black and white picture of each guest at their place setting. I embellished them with ribbon and scrapbook paper. There’s no need to spend money on photo paper, as plain white paper works well. Additionally, your guests can take them home as a favor.
Tip: If you are lacking photos of your guests, look for recent photos of them on Facebook or other social media sites.
Here’s another version of this idea.
For all you winos, you can also use recycled wine corks and scrapbook paper. I cut a slit on top and cut off the rounded bottom with a sharp knife so they will stand straight… super simple and inexpensive! I used them as food labels for a Wine Tasting Party, but they will also work nicely for place card settings.
Using natural elements makes a great table scape at this time of year. Use fruit or vegetables from the refrigerator tied with twine or foliage or flowers from right your back yard. Use a festive pretty ribbon from your craft or gift wrapping closet. Also consider using a branch of berries. For some pictured below, I used a craft punch for the tag.
