I know most of us likely have Halloween on the brain (are your costumes done yet?!?), but today I want to get you thinking about the big occasion happening in just about a month: Thanksgiving! A few weeks ago, I released my Printable Thanksgiving Planner, and with it, a 30-page companion kit of coordinating printable patterns. Today, I want to give you a closer look at my Thanksgiving Place Cards and Patterns Companion Kit, and show you some really fun ways to use these colorful pages to make printable thanksgiving place cards, menu cards, thankful cards, napkin rings, table decor and anything else you might need for your table!
This really fun 30-page kit include 9 multi-color patterns, 3 different tone-on-tone patterns in all 6 colors, as well as ready-to-print place cards, menu cards, and thankful cards!
Whether you want to use the patterned pages to make simple decorations…
…or create and array of coordinating paper items for your table…
…these colorful mix-and-match pages allow you to quickly and easily create a festive tablescape with just your home printer and a stack of white cardstock!
Printable Thanksgiving Place Cards
If you’re in a hurry or just want some simple details on your table, these printable place cards couldn’t be any easier. Once you have the LillyMae font downloaded to your computer, you simply need to type in all your guests names into the editable file and print onto sturdy cardstock…
Then just slice along the grey lines to have place cards ready in minutes!
Menu Place Cards
You can up the simple place card concept a notch by using my Place Card + Menu template (also included) alongside some of the printable patterns.
On this editable template, you can type in your guests name, as well as whatever menu you are serving. Since the text is black, you can pair it with any patterns included or ones you already have to make custom menus for your guests.
To make the ones shown, I simply sliced down four of my patterns (below left), some solid cardstock (below right), and my printed place cards/menus in 6″ wide rectangles.
After layering them together with craft adhesive…
…they became the perfect way to add a functional splash of color to each place setting!
Printable Thankful Cards
Creating coordinating thankful cards for each guest to write on couldn’t be any simpler!
Just print out the included thankful cards sheet onto white cardstock and slice down the grey lines.
If you want to make them a little more colorful, cut rectangles from the coordinating patterns and use a corner punch in each corner. (My corner punch is super old, and I can’t seem to find it online. This one is similar.)
Slicing out the corners allows you to slip a thankful card right in without any tape or adhesive!
Place one on each plate or pass them around in a basket to help friends and family reflect on the “reason for the season”!
The printable and editable templates in this kit sure make for quick and easy table accessories, but it’s the printable patterns that really provide so many options to enhance your Thanksgiving decor! Since everything mixes, matches and coordinates, you’ll be sure to have a gorgeous looking table with minimal effort!
From banners and invitations to napkin rings and food placards, just pick a few colors you love and build your whole Thanksgiving scheme around them!
Pair the papers with die-cut shapes and pretty pens to make understated place cards…
…or cut and fold the patterns to bring an oh-so-simple touch of whimsy to your table!
The possibilities for creating a festive Thanksgiving table really are endless!
