Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas
I absolutely love this time of year. It seems that everyone is in a more humble and grateful mood. Facebook and Twitter are full of people sharing what they are thankful for, my home is decorated in gorgeous burnt orange, golden yellow and earthy brown colors and the Vikings are on the TV. It is time to start planning for my favorite festive family get together, Thanksgiving.
Like every year, my table will be decorated with the colors of the season and I will have a delicious turkey roasting in the oven. However, this year I thought it would be fun to add a personal touch to my table setting with personalized name tags. Not only are these name tags crafty, rustic and oh-so-autumn, but they will make your guests feel special too. It’s such a simple touch to tell someone that you’re thankful for them. Simply add them to the napkin decorations that already adorn your table. The nice thing about these decorations is that you can make them weeks in advance in preparation for your Thanksgiving feast so the morning of is not as stressful.
It’s easy. First Click Here and print the tags on Kraft paper. If you don’t have Kraft paper, white paper will work just fine, however, I would suggest you use a thicker paper. Print and cut out as many tags as you will have guests and write their names on each tag. You can take it a step further and write a simple note to each tag as well to tell them why you are thankful to have them in your life. Attach the nametags to your napkins to add to your festive décor. You can add these to your place settings around the table or place them all in a basket at the end of your buffet line so everyone can find theirs and seat themselves.
Another option we have tried is leaving the nametags blank at each table setting. Then, when each person sits down at their place setting, they would fill out what they are thankful for. After everyone has written what they are thankful for, simply place all the tags in a hat and pick them out one by one during your meal and share them with all.
I hope that you have an amazing Thanksgiving with your family and don’t forget to tell them why you are thankful for them!
