Four Festive Place Cards for the Holiday Table.

I spent Saturday at the Wayfair + Boston Bloggers‘ Home for the Holidays event and it got me majorly into the holiday spirit. I’m fine waiting a little longer until we start chatting about Christmas, but Thanksgiving is just 3 weeks away so you better believe I’m starting to scheme up holiday  tablescape decorations. I started to test  a few ideas for place cards using natural elements — first, a big fresh artichoke centered on a plate with a small hand-drawn paper banner that I lettered in gold. For the next  place card I tied a silk blush ribbon around the stem of a tiny pumpkin (I love the golden and green colors in this one!). I used a deep red pomegranate and a gold permanent marker to create some faux-calligraphy for another option. And my fourth and final test was a small wreath that I made out of fresh thyme sprigs. A small piece of peach ribbon covered up where I tied off the wreath and I personalized it with a gold glitter monogram sticker. This one was my favorite because it smelled so fresh and rich! So what do you think, any favorites?

    Yesssss! And so it begins…the holiday DIYs, as you know, are my favorite! I love the pumpkin for Thanksgiving. The ribbon gives that extra punch of color which I love.

    These simple additions are absolutely precious and lend a note of intimacy to the table. The guests can feel honored that they were anticipated. I love the pops of metallic for this season.

    I love the tablecloth you’ve used–is there any chance you might be able to share where it’s from? I’ve been looking for some plaid table linens and it’s so hard to find ones with those hues.
