Some of our favorite place cards for the Thanksgiving table are so simple that they require just one tool. Can you guess what that tool is?


Sakura Pen-Touch Paint Marker, around $3 at Dick Blick

A gold paint pen! The gold ink is opaque and will write on almost anything. Simply select a seasonal object or something that's going on the table anyway and go to town writing everyone's names in your neatest hand. A few ideas (as pictured up top):

  • leaves
  • burlap napkins
  • mini pumpkins, or fruits like pears or tangerines
  • napkin rings
