Thanksgiving Place Cards

From picking a turkey to assigning side dishes to cleaning house, few obligations toe the line of exciting and stressful quite as well as hosting Thanksgiving, so — to help you along — we dug up some of our favorite fixings for a grateful table. With the help of a paper kit or one of our Thanksgiving How-tos your guests can savor the color of the season along with the feast.

Centerpieces & Table Accents
Try your hand at creating something unique using a fall wreath or paper leaves. Last year, Paper Source Designer Karen showed us three table accent themes built from our kits. This lovely Leaf Light How-to is another great option.


Bring a hint color to your table with this festive Printable Place Card How-To. Our new Turkey Shapes (also featured in our Garland of Thanks How-To) and Reindeer Place Cards serve as wonderful backdrops, especially fitting for those who celebrate hunting season.

Cards & Favors
Customers often tell us charming stories of our Thankful Cards and the lasting impression left at their gathering. Try this favor box variation to create a keepsake that will mark the occasion. Or, for those who prefer handmade cards, check out our card making recipes for Thanksgiving.

DIY Cards

It’s amazing how simple paper accents can transform your table into something inspired. Party Planner Rachel Hollis recently transformed our die-cut leaves into an elegant table accent for holiday entertaining.

    I used the Paper Source die-cut leaves to implement an idea from Better Homes and Gardens. Each Thanksgiving guest (and we had a motley crew, including a shelter dog who wasn’t expected) wrote what they were grateful for on one of the leaves, and we posted them on a bulletin board near the front door. Given the myriad religious leanings of the participants (adamant atheist to Christian to Buddhist to neo-pagan) this served the purpose of giving thanks in our own way without causing offense. It was a lovely display, and very meaningful.
