Thought I'd share my Thanksgiving table place settings with you. I love using simple, organic, and not too over-the-top items to create a welcoming place at the table. Fresh herbs and fruit, things you can either find in your yard or at your local grocery store, work perfectly.
This year I took an element I used a few years ago, but always love, rosemary sprigs. Not only does it look good, it smells amazing! Just as Thanksgiving should be. I tied each napkin with a pretty silk ribbon and a paper tag with each guests name.
Under each napkin is a little conversation starter. This year I found Tabletopics
Family Gathering set. Have you heard of Tabletopics? It's a lot of fun. I placed three cards under each napkin for them to answer. Here's a peek of what's under my sister's napkin.
I also love fresh herbs in a small vase instead of flowers. While flowers are a great option, herbs just seem fitting for the holiday. This year I added thyme in some small glass vases I brought back from France. Simple and elegant.
For another place setting idea, this is what I did last year. I used pears and tied a simple leaf-shaped tag for each guest's place setting. I also found these 'I am thankful for' cards at Paper Source
I am so thankful for all of my readers who have welcomed me into the blog world! Happy Thanksgiving!
