It’s the holiday we all love and look forward to. So this year, make it more memorable than ever with some extra-special thoughtful touches.
Unique Place Settings
Nothing is more welcoming than a personalized place setting, and it’s easy to put together with a little creativity. Here are some ideas to get you started.
The Pumpkin Place
Buy an array of miniature pumpkins and gourds at your local grocery store. With a sharp knife, cut a ¼” slit towards the top of each one. Print each guest’s name on Avery Clean Edge Business Cards. Place one card in each gourd and set a welcoming and festive place setting.
A Photo Place Setting
Nothing is warmer than a family picture, so how about creating place settings that incorporate a favorite photo? Just print out a favorite family photo on an Avery Postcard, leaving room at the top or bottom to print each guest’s name. It’s easy to do using the Avery Wizard software for Microsoft® Office.
Print each guest’s name on an Avery Postcard. Beneath their name, print the Thanksgiving menu for this year.
3-D Place Setting
Buy some festive and inexpensive Thanksgiving decorations at your local craft store. Look for turkeys, pilgrims, pumpkins or any other symbols of the season. Print each guest’s name in a decorative typeface on Avery Clean Edge Business Cards. Then glue a small decoration to the card for a personalized and fun place setting.
An Artful Idea
Print each guest’s name on an Avery Tent Card. Gather a selection of crayons or markers in fall colors like brown and red and orange. Let the young children decorate the tent cards before dinner. It keeps the kids busy and makes a great memento.
Find some Thanksgiving or autumn images. You can get free images on avery.com. Or, if you don’t find exactly what you’re looking for, you can also download more free images at iStockphoto as part of an exclusive offer for Avery customers. Then use the Avery Wizard software for Microsoft® Office to insert that image, along with each guest’s name onto an Avery Tent Card. The process is easy when you use the Avery Wizard and in no time you’ll have place settings people will want to take home with them!
