My parents are hosting Thanksgiving this year. It's a big job - we're no small family. My siblings, their spouses, and kids add up to 18 alone. So add a few aunts, uncles and cousins into the mix, and it becomes an event. Naturally, Mom delegates jobs, and one of mine was place cards. I came up with the easiest, cheapest solution: spray painted leaves. Even got the kids in on it - we went outside and hunted for leaves on our walk. I had some gold spray paint on hand, a string of jute and a slip of paper, and now I have place cards:
Thankful Tree project. I used my fancy-shmancy scissors to pretty them up a bit, punched a hole and tied a little piece of jute through it. Tie the jute around the stem of the leaf, and you're done. Easy peasy.
Now if you'll excuse me, I better get to work on the rest of them! ;)
