I use the few days leading up to Thanksgiving to pre-bake desserts, dry the bread crumbs for stuffing, set the table and multiple other tasks to cut down on the work load on Thanksgiving Day.
One of the things I made ahead is place cards. I started using place cards a few years ago more for fun than actual assigned seating.
Along with these leaf place cards another of my favorites for fall is my Scrapbooking Place Cards.
These leaf place cards take only a few supplies are easy-peay to make and look beautiful on the table.
