Free Printables: Thanksgiving Place Cards

Free Printables - Thanksgiving Place Cards

Since Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, I wanted to share a holiday freebie with you. I created a sheet of free printables – Thanksgiving place cards that you can use however you’d like during your Thanksgiving holiday.

The download is a JPG file, so you can open it up in your favorite image programs and add your own text to them before printing. Or if you prefer, you can print first and then hand write or stamp names or words on them.

Thanksgiving Name Cards

You can add names and use them to assign seating at your Thanksgiving table…

Or, you can create cards that can be used to label your various Thanksgiving dishes.

Thanksgiving Place Cards (Tented Table Cards)

This is particularly helpful if you will be having a buffet table.

–I print on white or light colored cardstock. You could print on regular copy paper, but they won’t stand up as well.

–I recommend using a paper trimmer to cut these out, but if you don’t have one, scissors can work too.

–You will see a very thin grey line above the Thanksgiving place card design — this is a cutting guide so that you will cut out a “back” to your place card so that it will stand up on a table like a tent.

–After cutting, you will be folding the entire card in half — the blank side will be on the back and the design will be on the front. Before attempting to fold, place a ruler along the top edge of the design and use the corner of an old plastic card (like a gift card) to line along the top of the design, along the edge of the ruler, depressing down into your cardstock. This will make a much neater fold at the top of your place card.

–For an activity on Thanksgiving day, have each person right something that they are most thankful for on the back of their place card

    Great idea, but when I was a kid, my sister and I were tasked with making the place cards. Looking back on it now, I think that added a great touch to the holiday meal.

      Thanks JoAnna…I actually think kids making Thanksgiving place cards would be quite preferable. Unfortunately, my kids would probably do one and lose interest. But in their younger days, that would have been the most perfect addition to our Thanksgiving table.
