Nature Inspired Thanksgiving Place Settings

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I've been busy putting together three easy place settings for you to use on your Thanksgiving Table.

For me Thanksgiving holds memories of simple pleasures gathered around our dining room table. Every year I look forward to this holiday, not only for the delicious food but for gathering together as a family, sharing, laughing and catching up on our life stories together.

Today I will show you how you can put together three nature inspired place settings without spending any money.  All you need to do is look outside your window.  I searched my back yard for colorful leaves and woody pine cones.  You can even involve your kids in the search.  When my daughter was younger I would tell her we were going on an adventure to search for treasures.

To help you get started, I put each place setting under a different category.
  The first one is simple the second is pretty and the third is country.
Choose which one fits your style and inspires you!
They are all easy to do!

SIMPLE

Make this Super easy Place Card in the shape of a house

I created the place card using paint sample cards.  The cards have a triangular shape of a roof top. To make yours simply fold and crease the bottom & write anything you would like, then stand the little house next to your plate. They are so adorable!  I found the paint sample cards at Lowe's.
Best of all they are free!

Fold a cloth napkin length wise and place utensils on top.
 Scatter hand painted leaves around the place setting for a simple woodsy look.

PRETTY

Roll a cloth napkin and tie with a crochet ribbon.


Paint the leaves with metallic gold fabric paint and tuck a sprig of dried lavender under the ribbon. 
If you do not have lavender you can use any flower clipping.

Place two leaves on the plate and one on top of the ribbon.

COUNTRY

Yellow gingham napkins add a country feel to this place setting.
Simply fold the napkin length wise then flip the bottom up and crease

Tuck two painted leaves inside and tie with a black ribbon.
Use a silver metallic sharpie to write on the leaves.

For added texture and a more woodsy touch add a pine cone.
