Thanksgiving Place Cards to go With Your Place Cards
Research done by The Greeting Card Association has found that 70% of card buyers surveyed consider greeting cards “absolutely” or “almost” essential to them. A quick online search of what to write in a Thanksgiving place cards will give you great ideas for personalizing the cards.
1. Die Cut Leaf Shaped Place Cards
This has to be at the very top of the list. Fall is simply beautiful, and the main reason is the pretty leaves in different colors. Draw inspiration from this and die-cut your place cards in the shape and color of fall leaves. Alternatively, order some die-cuts of plain leaves or leaf arrangements then stick these on regular shaped cards on which you can write each person’s name. This will give your regular cards extra flair.
I have received similar cards and have also sent out a few and they are always received well. The one that was most notable for me was a birthday card with a teddy bear holding a bunch of flowers. The flowers had three layers of die-cut flowers stuck one on top of the other and as you can imagine, it was quite chunky. Despite this, it was gorgeous when placed on my bookshelf where it stayed for months, becoming a common fixture in my room. You can give someone else this experience by making an event card or thanksgiving place cards in the same way.
2. Scented Candle Labels as Thanksgiving Place Cards
You can either buy or make if you are up to the task, candles for each guest. Order a batch of custom labels on which you can print each person’s name. You may use different scents for variety and create a Thanksgiving party placeholder that people can carry home. Lavender and cinnamon are popular scents that you can use. Everyone is bound to love this and you will have set a great creative record to boot!
3. Kraft Thanksgiving Place Cards on Planters
You can go green by getting your place cards printed on Kraft paper. Environmentally conscious guests will be sure to notice and appreciate this. Take the green experience a notch higher by buying tiny planters with succulents in them. You can then put a kraft thanksgiving place cards on top of each planter for each guest. Since succulents are notoriously hardy, there’s a good chance that these little green gifts will thrive in their new homes.

While this place card will call for some extra expenditure, it will be well worth it. You may go for miniature bottles or regular-sized bottles depending on what you can afford. Next, design and order some custom bottle neck tags on which you will print or write each guest’s name by hand for a more personal feel. Everyone will feel appreciated and will be completely glad to be a part of your event.

Thanksgiving place cardholders
So much talk about cards, so here are two ideas of place that holders you may use:
Shot-Glass place card
For an event that will have adults, this can be a great idea. Print out some pretty custom place cards then use a toothpick or cut skewer to balance the card on top of.. a shot glass with your choice of spirit. These thanksgiving placeholders will serve both an aesthetic and refreshing purpose.
Tiny Pumpkin With Thanksgiving Place Cards
Another great idea of holders for your place card is getting tiny pumpkins and wedging the place card with a name on each. You can buy real pumpkins if you want to take this theme the whole way, but synthetic ones will work great too. This will be in perfect tandem with Thanksgiving and the bright colors of orange pumpkins will liven things up.
