Instant Thanksgiving Place Cards with Just One Tool

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
