Hopefully, by this time next week we’ll all be spending time with family and friends, stuffed to the brim with turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie â€“ and any other favorite Thanksgiving dishes. I love Thanksgiving for so many reasons: family and food, of course, but also the chance to rest, reflect, and feel thankful as we head into the season of giving. I wanted to do something a bit special this Thanksgiving, after a long and tumultuous year, so today I’m teaming up with illustrator and pattern designer Juliet Meeks to offer printable floral Thanksgiving dinner stationery to dress up your Thanksgiving table!
I told Juliet I wanted something colorful and whimsical â€“ and I love what she came up with! I love the touches of pink and red in the color palette, and the floral details are perfect for a late fall holiday table. We’ve got place cards, a 6.5″ x 9.5″ floral frame that can be used for menus and signs, and the cutest hand lettered gratitude cards. You can download the full printable set below, then print onto white card stock, and cut along the crop marks. You can even have everything printed at your local copy & print store to save time â€“ just make sure it’s on 110 lb matte white card stock and you’ll be good to go!
The place cards can be folded and tented to rest directly on the table, or cut off the top half and use them as a flat card on a plate or with a place card holder. The place cards also double as little menu cards where you can write the name of a particular dish â€“ or even use them to label the different kinds of pie! I wrote out the name of our favorite holiday punch, because that’s how we roll at Thanksgiving.
If you’re planning a more formal Thanksgiving dinner, you can use the large floral frame to write your menu and place it at each individual place setting. Or use it to make a welcome sign for guests telling them to grab a drink and make themselves comfortable. So many options!
And I’m absolutely loving these darling “I’m Thankful For…” cards that Juliet designed! Does your family go around the table to list the things that you’re grateful for before dinner? Writing them down is so much better!
