Gold DIY Place Cards & Thanksgiving Tablescape

Pretty tablescape & DiY placecard

Hi friends! Michaela here again to share with you my monthly entertaining ideas. It’s mid-November– say what?!– and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I wanted to give you a simple tablescape idea for Thanksgiving dinner, along with the easiest DIY place cards to add that special touch to the table top.

Materials: Mini canvases (found at Michael’s), black marker, gold paint, paint brush.

Step 1: Write the names on your mini canvases. Let dry.

Step 2: Using gold paint, lightly stroke the brush across the canvas, adding just a touch of gold on top of the lettering.

I just leaned these adorable canvas-turned-name-card up against an ivory pumpkin. I think ivory and white pumpkins are classic, and can definitely last without looking too Halloween, all the way through Thanksgiving.

For the tablescape, I put down a new gold runner, collected pretty candlestick holders, fall colored candles, larger pumpkins for the center of the table that I spray painted a metallic gold/silver color, natural looking placemats, china, a wine glass and pretty gold goblet (complete with an orange straw for sipping!), gold flatware, and a cloth napkin.

Most of these goods were found from around my home, which proves it really is that simple :) Since both gold and silver are “in” this year, don’t be afraid to mix metallics, creating a sparkly table for your guests. I hope this post put you in the mood for a little Thanksgiving decorating!
