Simple Thanksgiving Place Setting

I have seen so many cute place cards and table settings for Thanksgiving all over the internet but they take up too much space for my table. Once I have food on the table and people at the table, it's pretty crowded so I wanted to come up with something that was still cute and decorative but didn't take up much room. 

So, I decided to make a little pocket to hold the utensils. I used fall themed scrapbook paper and used the utensils as my guide for how big to make it. Then I secured it in the back with sticky strip. 

I added a tag to each pocket with ribbon so the utensil holders would double as a place card. The tags are from the David Tutera Celebrate card line. I simply wrote "Thankful for" and each individual person's name on the tag. I added a little leaf to the bottom of each tag that I punched out using my leaf punch. 

I just used a piece of cardstock as a place mat and punched a leaf out of each corner. 

I like how it turned out. It's cute and doesn't take up any extra room! 


  1. I love the way those turned out! I may have to borrow this idea from you. ;)

  2. Love these! What an awesome idea! :)
