Simple Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea

Simple Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea

Having a beautifully set table just makes a meal that much more special. And what meal is more special than Thanksgiving? I’m showing you how I made this simple Thanksgiving place setting for your guests. It’s mostly free, and you can put it together very easily, even if you’re someone who isn’t super crafty.

I like going with a neutral, warm color palette with mostly whites, tans, oranges, and browns. Add some fresh greenery down the middle of the table and a few candles throughout to add a glow.

You will need:

  • Leaves (1 for each guest or place setting)
  • Gold push pins
  • Gold pen
  • Paper or cardstock
  • Twine

Simple Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea

Start by writing each of your guests names on a separate piece of paper or cardstock.

Take each name and use a push pin to push through the leaf.

Gather your linens in the middle and tie with a piece of twine. Place on top of each dish and place each leaf on top.
