    I like using mini pumpkins for nametags! I cut a notch in the top of the pumpkin before resting a placecard in the notch up against the stem.

    Love these plates! I have a plate wall display and love switching them out by season- don’t have anything for Thanksgiving yet, would love to display these. I took a calligraphy class a couple of years ago and put it to good use when I can to do name tags!

    I haven’t thought to add name tags to our Thanksgiving table because we have such a large extended family that comes, but these plates are absolutely gorgeous and I think I’d definitely have to start!

    I’d probably make place cards if I had more free time. Cooking dinner and caring for my infant at the same time is going to be a fun balancing act this year! :)

    Love them! We put down a painters drop cloth for our thanksgiving table cloth and let the kids decorate it with sharpie markers with the theme “What are you grateful for?” Its very creative and makes for nice conversation starters at the table. The kids have a great time contributing to the thanksgiving festive table.

    Usually, I don’t add name tags but I think I will start this year. I saw a cute ideal of attaching the name tag to the stem of a fruit.

    Family members have always hosted for Thanksgiving. The gatherings are somewhat informal, so place cards have not been used. Some year when it’s my turn to host, I look forward to having place cards as a part of the table setting.

    My daughter and I love making pretty name cards. We print them out on pretty paper using fun fonts in Word. It’s an opportunity for her to gain word processing skills and get creative at the same time. Not to mention the fun of working together on a project!

    I do always make some sort of placecard for each person, even though we don’t usually have all that many people. But it’s fun to come up with different ideas/favors for guests to make them feel just a little bit more special and Fall is such an incredible bounty of possibilities as far as ideas go!

    My mom just purchased these plates. They are even nicer looking in person. I would love to win a set as it is my year to host Thanksgiving ; )Yes, some years I do name tags. Every year I do a little “gift” at each place setting. Usually a Fran’s chocolate truffle in a box; sometimes, fancy after dinner mints placed in little nylon bags, etc. I always do candles. We dim the chandelier and light all the candles (tall skinny ones; short ones). It makes it extra cozy!

    I don’t use name tags, because people never seem to like that, here. But I love the turkey plates. Reminds me of the huge turkey platter my mom and grandmother always used for the turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

    Sometimes I write names on fall-colored leaves with a gold gel pen, other times I will take fall fruit (apples, pears, mini pumpkins) & tie homemade name tags around the stems & place in middle of plates.

    We use name tags sometimes. When we do they are part of a gift like a name on a leaf shaped cookie or on a gift popper.

    One of our favorite Thanksgiving table tags was when we collected real fall leaves and actually wrote on the leaves with a fine-tip Sharpie with cursive penmanship & swirls.
    But our real tradition is that we always, always, always have family members and guests write down something they are THANKFUL for… and we read them aloud. Then we feel like we had a Thanksgiving meal, not just another family dinner.

    I never use nametags. I’ve experienced the frustration of being seated between people with whom I have nothing in common and no common ground for conversation. I prefer to have my guests determine their own places.

    I love these small plates and they would be a great addition to my Holiday table as I host family, friends and a family that needs a little help. We don’t do name tages but we go around the table and share what we are thankful for as a way of getting to know our guest as we touch each others lives.
