Thifty Idea: Place Card Holders

November 21st, 2007 at 03:51 am

I'm hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year. My menu is set, but I haven't had as much time to plan the place setting and table decorations as I'd like. I did have a moment of inspiration this evening while I was eating dinner this evening I glanced up to the shelf and saw a bunch of wine corks:

These name cards were simple to make. I printed our names on piece of ivory paper, sliced into the cork and threaded through a leaf. To add a little splash of color, I tied a burgundy piece of ribbon (originally intended for Christmas packages). If time allows, I'll look for more vibrant colored leaves outside tomorrow.

    I save corks to give away on Freecycle. Last time they went to a guy who was making such name cards for his wedding reception. Do you think anyone would be interested in the plastic corks that look like real cork? I usually only save the natural ones.
