Who is ready for the holidays?

It seem like just yesterday we were hanging by the pool and now we are getting the house ready to be full with family. Though I am always sad to see summer go, I do look forward to visiting with family and friends at holiday parties.

For the past few years I have held Thanksgiving at my house and this year came up with some fun items I thought I would share.

When I was a kid my dad would have me and my sister make name placecards. Even though this was probably my parents way of keeping us busy it became one of my favorite chores to do for the holiday. Since my kids are still young I made fold over name tags for them to color and write in the names. Feel free to download and copy away.

I also created these buffet food name plates.  We have about 30-40 guests so it’s just easier to serve our food buffet style. I like to find little ways to dress it up. I used a panel style card and made little ‘picture’ holders with an alligator clip attached to a gourd to make it festive. I also included a fold over style PDF if you wanted a simple fold over card. You can use this instead of the panel ones or make making name tags.

Wishing everyone a safe and wonderful holiday!
