Bird Place Cards

I hope you are not disappointed by the reveal. These are my little bird place cards for our Thanksgiving table.

I really enjoyed making them. I love to mix and match all the patterns. I could do it all day. Sometimes, I think I do! A little pretty paper, toothpicks and wine corks, who knew?

I put a small round piece of paper on the bottom of each cork to make sure that the birds did not fall . They were getting a bit top heavy.

They may not be your typical Thanksgiving place cards, but I love the colors. And you know how I just love to cut out birds!

The last little detail, the pretty off white beads, were an after thought. How can something so small have such big impact?
Thank you to all the wine lovers out there, these would not be possible without all of you!
Thanks for visiting!

Please take a picture of your table when you have it set for the meal. I'd love to see everything all together. Adding the bead to the piece was the perfect finishing touch.
