No, Thank You – Printable Thanksgiving Place Cards

Thanksgiving Squirrel

First things first. Reader, I married him. (A post for another day but I couldn’t return to this corner of the blogosphere and not mention it.)

I wrote my last blog post on November 24, 2014, and I find it funny that I sit here writing the next post 365 days later. Literally. Quite a bit has happened in the last twelve months and I’ve been swimming in gratitude for some time. So, I suppose it’s fitting that I am posting this two days before Thanksgiving.

My family is far from formal but we have a thing for place cards with our parties. And as the resident calligrapher, I have been in charge of them for ages. Some people have a signature dish. I have paper goods. Here are the cards I am placing around the thirty-plus chairs at our feast this year. I thought maybe you could use them, too. Just click the link below, save the PDF, and print them on your paper of choice. I’m using white card stock but I think they’d look fabulous on kraft paper, too.

Wishing you and yours love, laughter, and leftovers (grab leftover labels in the post from a year ago today). xo A

Leftover Labels: The Thanksgiving Edition

I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. – Henry David Thoreau

Holidays are complicated. I like to simplify things a la Thoreau, or more precisely, I’d like to simplify them but haven’t quite figured out how to do so, and until then I like to simplify things for other people. Very Emma Woodhouse of me, I know.

A friend asked me to design holiday leftover labels last Christmas, which I thought was a great idea and I shared them on le blog. When I decided (yesterday) to make some again for Thanksgiving, I knew I either had time to design labels or do a photoshoot of labels but not both. So yes, the image above is a total Photoshop from last year and few would probably notice unless I pointed it out, but there you go. That’s simplifying-ish, right?

So, simply click the TYPE A Thanksgiving labels below to download and you’re all set to assemble those leftovers you send home with friends and family Thursday night. Print them on full-sheet sticker labels (for the graphics-free ones I’d opt for kraft paper ones) or use cardstock for tags on bags of leftovers. Happy care-packaging. Because the only thing better than food on Thanksgiving is that same food the very next day.

P.S. November 29th is Small Business Saturday. Whether you do the Black Friday thing or not, consider supporting a small business or two on Saturday. Small business owners, like me, would be thankful for your visit.
