These simple and modern Thanksgiving Place Cards couldn’t be any easier!

  • Download the LillyMae font to your computer.

BONUS TIP! Use this same Place Card page to make food labels for your Thanksgiving buffet! Instead of guest names, type in each food you’re serving. Print and cut just as shown above, and then secure each one onto a serving dish with a clothespin or label holder!

Idea 2: Menu Place Cards

Take your Thanksgiving Place Cards up a notch by using the Menu Place Cards Template alongside some of the printable patterns.

Whether you mix-and-match all 6 colors or stick to a more cohesive palette, these pages allow you to make really chic and unique menu cards for every place setting quickly and easily!

Idea 3: Menu Card + Napkin Ring

Another option is to pair the Menu Place Cards Template with patterned paper to make an all-in-one napkin ring combination! Instead of cutting the patterned paper down into 6″ rectangles (as shown above), keep it in longer, wider strips that can bend around a folded napkin.

Idea 4: DIY Thankful Cards

If you don’t want to fuss with place markers, Thankful Cards are another sweet element to put at each place setting. Pair a printable Thankful Card with a pencil and encourage guests to reflect before the big meal. (This also makes for cute and easy party favors!)

Printable Thanksgiving Placemats

To make your own Thanksgiving Placemats:

  • Print 2 sheets of the exact same pattern.
  • Slice off the long white edge on one of the pages.
  • Place a line of adhesive on the underside of the trimmed edge.
  • Layer the cut edge over the other page, matching up the pattern repeat.

TIP! Laminate the placemats with extra-large laminating sheets or self-laminating sheets to make the placemats waterproof…especially for the kids’ table or backyard celebrations!

Printable Thanksgiving Napkin Rings

To make your own Thanksgiving Napkin Rings:

  • Print out your preferred pattern(s) onto white printer paper or cardstock.
  • Use a paper trimmer to slice the page down into 1.5 x 6″ strips.
  • Place adhesive along one edge of the strips.
  • Roll the strip into a coil with a 1-1.5″ girth (depending on how heavy of napkins you’ll be using.)

TIP! Decorate the napkin ring with coordinating printable stickers, metallic ribbon, or other decorative elements!

If you want to show off more pattern at your place setting, cut the paper into wider strips. Instead of rolling up the napkins and rings, bend the longer strips around folded napkins. With more surface area exposed, this is a great place to add a glitter monogram or letter stickers!

Table Confetti

The patterned pages can also be used to cut some “table confetti” in your favorite Fall shapes such as acorns, leaves, pumpkins, and feathers. Use a punch or your favorite electronic cutting machine (such as a Cricut or Silhouette) to cut out the shapes. You can then scatter them across the table…

…or even use the shapes to make quick place cards with a Metallic Sharpie!
