Thanksgiving 2020. What a year it’s been. Our traditions may not look the same this year, but we can still celebrate and take time to be grateful. Sometimes little touches can dress up a celebration. Check out the end of this post for Free Thanksgiving Place Cards that you can simply print and cut.
I have always loved Thanksgiving because it’s a holiday all about food and gratitude. This year we’ll be doing a very small Thanksgiving with just my immediate family. I’m still excited about the food and about the decorations.
This year’s place cards are stand-alone cards that are folded over to stand up. There are even a few shape cards, if you want something less traditional. I also created two version of a Turkey Place Card. One is a print and cut place card and the other is a kid’s craft.
Since it’s more important than ever to practice gratitude, please check out my Gratitude Turkey that can be part of your Thanksgiving decorations and can also help you and your family practice gratitude.

Thanksgiving Place Cards Supplies
Visit the end of this post to download the Free Thanksgiving Place Cards. Simply print and cut the place cards. These cards are meant to be tented. The dotted grey line indicates where to fold.
I used white cardstock, but ivory cardstock would create an elegant feel.
You can hand write the names. If you’re feeling fancy, I recently took a course from Becca Courtice at The Happy Ever Crafter on hand lettering. It was so much fun! I’m excited to put my skills to use on my cards this year.
Once the names are on your place cards, just fold and place.
Turkey Place Card Craft
I also created this cute turkey place card. I made two versions, a cut-and-print place card and a kid’s craft.
The kid’s craft version has all the pieces separated. If your child need a craft or wants to help decorate the table, this is something they can do. The craft gives them the flexibility to put the turkey together whatever way they want. My youngest wants to create and extra beak and have the turkey “holding” the name placard in her beak.
I’ve talked a few times about gratitude. Read this post to learn more about why gratitude matters. Now, more than ever, gratitude is essential if we are going to make it through this pandemic with our sanity intact.
I am grateful to have wonderful memories to share and family stories to tell.
I am grateful that my family is healthy.
I am grateful for you, my readers and fellow crafters.
Happy (lazy) Thanksgiving!
