Time to make the placecards

This year I thought I would use Whitman Samplers for our place cards. Let me just say we are not that fancy a family, I just love place cards. They have become a tradition in our family. I think they would be missed if they were not made.

I love using brown wrapping paper. Mom, that's me!

I think the raffia makes a great trim for the brown paper.

I love the colors of fall.

I am very happy with the results. I like when that happens, it is not always the case when I make something.

The table is starting to take shape. All it needs is flatware and a candle or two. It won't look like this for long soon it will be covered with a turkey and all the fantastic trimmings. My favorite side dish is Memphis Corn Pudding!
Thanks for visiting!

Mmmmm, that's a nice take home as well...if your guests can bare to open them. I love the paper leaf and the button with the raffia bows. You are too clever Denise. That Memphis corn pudding recipe sounds yummy.

Happy Thanksgiving!
