Natural DIY Place Card Ideas for the Fall

These festive autumn decorating ideas are a wonderfully natural way to dress up your table for the season.


Though they look fantastic, these place cards really aren't hard to create, so give them a try this year for a lovely look that will impress guests!

Savory Succulent

This cut succulent looks good enough to eat. Luckily with all of the food you'll be serving at dinner no one will be tempted to.


Krazy for Kale

This kale is grown to be enjoyed as a cut flower and really makes a statement when placed on a dinner plate. Use one of the leaves as a place card.


The Colors of the Season

Wrap a few sprigs of colorful fall flora and fauna to bring the vibrant colors of the season onto your table. A few leaf shaped cards from craft store (or you can cut them out yourself) are the finishing touch.


Zen Style

Create of sense of peace and calm this Thanksgiving with a Zen inspired holiday table. Keep the look clean and simple with minimal elements. Now let's mediate on all we have to be thankful for!


Holiday at the Shore

Whether you're having the holidays at your place on the beach or you just wish you were, create the mood with sand dollar place cards with a single orchid tucked in for a look that's simple and elegant.



Picture Perfect Place Settings

Give each guest at your table their own floral arrangement with petite colored bottles holding a single flower. For a truly personal touch attach a special note to each bottle telling that person what you are thankful for about them. Add a copy of a photo of them on the front of the note instead of just writing their name. I particularly like the look of photos from the past. It adds a sweet nostalgic feeling that is perfect for Thanksgiving!
