Last Minute Thanksgiving Ideas

Thanksgiving place card

November has really flown by and I’m not sure how I feel about saying goodbye to Fall. Although I’m excited about Christmas and looking forward to decorating our tree with the kids next week. I have a few last minute Thanksgiving Ideas to share that I didn’t get a chance to post earlier.

A few days ago I made this Happy Thanksgiving place card. Looking at it makes me happy! The colors and simplicity embody my style perfectly. I’ve said it many time times before but I like simple!

I made the place card by folding a piece of brown cardstock then using a Martha Stewart punch to scallop the bottom. The two center pieces are Lifestyle Crafts die cuts and the stamp is from Hobby Lobby.

Speaking of Martha Stewart, here are a few craft ideas from the expert herself to help decorate your Thanksigiving table:
-Decorate bottles or jars with Doily Lace labels to create a coordinating theme throughout your tablescape
-Martha Stewart also has “Woodland Wine Labels” that you can use to cover existing bottle labels. Add a little glitter or rhinestones for extra pizzaz!
-Another fun idea is to create doily lace coasters for your glassware.
-Create custom place cards by using punches and cardstock
-For a simple, classic look wrap napkins with bakers twine. I found a package of 6 Martha Stewart twine spools at Michaels. Use the brown and white for Thanksgiving then the red and white spool for Christmas!

Thanksgiving Place Card Ideas: Metallic Walnuts

Thanksgiving Place Card Ideas

Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? I’m not prepared for the year to come to end yet, it seems like Fall is the quickest season to pass. Or maybe that’s only because we don’t actually have Fall weather and colors until November here in central California. It bums me out every year. I should probably move to another state where cold weather lasts a lot longer than a couple of months. As much as I’d like November to stay a little longer I am looking forward to spending time with our family next week.

While searching for quick and easy Thanksgiving Place Card ideas I thought of a cute place card that can be used for a variety of holiday meals. This metallic walnut place card is right up my alley when it comes to decor. I love metallics, shine, glitter you name it!

My inspiration for the Thanksgiving Place Card came from no other than my fab idol Martha herself. If you know me personally than you might know that Martha has been my idol since I was a child. I remember staying home on sick days, eating soup in my mother’s bed, while watching Martha Stewart. My husband totally doesn’t understand my absolute admiration for Martha, but that’s OK. I also happen to be arguably her biggest supporter when it comes to buying Martha Stewart products. Every time I see something new I can’t wait to try it. The Martha Stewart liquid gilding is my latest favorite craft item.

I used the gold liquid gilding to cover walnuts to use as place card holders. On the Martha Stewart website they place the name cards slightly inside the walnut, but since I used the gilding it filled the crevices and prevented me from doing that. I also didn’t want to slightly open them and risk ruining the gilding so my best option was to add a very small amount of hot glue to hold them in place. You can’t see the glue and it worked really well holding the name tag in place.

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I have yet to decide what dish I’m going to contribute to the meal. Any awesome dessert dishes you’d like to share?
