Whether you're having six people join you for Thanksgiving dinner, or sixteen, I think it's always nice to make place cards. It shows your friends and family you especially thought of them and it allows everyone to quickly find their place at the table so you can enjoy your delicious Thanksgiving feast.
For our placecards this year, I saved the grandest of my acorn caps to create a velvet acorn for each guest. I have never seen acorn caps this large before, but I'm smitten. Each guest's acorn is a different autumn color. I chose chocolate brown script on ivory card stock, which was cut and shaped into a simple tent form.
For the favor bags, I hand-stamped small muslin bags which will be placed on the guest's plate next to their velvet acorn.
Inside the favor bags are milk chocolate caramel leaves wrapped in gold foil, by Lake Champlain Chocolates.
We have so much to be thankful for this year and I can't wait to have our girls home to celebrate next week. Now I'm off to plan the menu and make a very long grocery list.
