It’s Thanksgiving week! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays (I’m generally a fan of any holiday that involves gathering around a table full of food), and this year I wanted to offer a little something to help make this year’s Thanksgiving dinner even more enjoyable. So before we all go running off to spend the long weekend with family and friends, I’m teaming up with Courtney of Swiss Cottage Designs to create this printable Thanksgiving dinner menu full of Courtney’s beautiful illustrations!
The menus feature illustrations of some of our favorite fall foods and ingredients, including potatoes, carrots, and butternut squash – all essential ingredients of any Thanksgiving feast. Oh, and pie – because Thanksgiving dinner just isn’t complete without at least one pie! Just grab the printable template right here, print on letter size card stock, and use a paper cutter to trim each menu down to size along the provided crop marks. The black and white menu can be printed on card stock of any color to match any Thanksgiving table, but I’m really loving the black and white vibe!
We left a bit of space at the top of each 5″ x 7″ menu so that you could write the names of each dinner guest at the top – making the menus double as place cards! I used my favorite extra fine gold Pen-touch marker to hand letter each name at the top. Or just leave that space blank for more informal seating!
You can write out your menu by hand or use an editing program (I used Adobe Illustrator) to add in your own text. These menus definitely aren’t meant to be fussy, so use whatever method works for you!
Safe travels everyone – and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
