Pine Cone Place Card Holders + FREE Printable

This is the first holiday in our house where I have actually felt up to cooking and decorating. I was pregnant for


 of the holidays last year and forget about eating last Thanksgiving, I had way too many aversions. I plan on making up for lost time but putting together a beautiful, cozy Thanksgiving dinner table....for Seth and I. On the Tuesday before Thanksgiving I will be cooking a "mini" Thanksgiving dinner for just the two of us and then we will go to my parents' home on Thanksgiving day for the last holiday in my childhood home since my parents move the week before Christmas. Anyway, while Seth and I enjoy our little Thanksgiving for Two, William will get to eat a sampling of applesauce, squash, sweet potatoes, and green beans. Those are all of the Thanksgiving-y foods that he's tried so far. Despite the fact that it will only be two of us at our home for dinner, I still plan on decorating just because it will be a lot of fun. 

It's probably silly but I am going to put those adorable pine cone place card holders on our table for Seth and I. Maybe next year I will get to host our family dinner and it will make more sense to have these cute little place card holders out on the table. These place card holders are super easy to make and only take a few supplies.

and cut out the place cards. If you're artsy or have nice handwriting, you can write the names right on the cards but if you're like me and have terrible handwriting and fail at hand lettering, you can type up the names using a pretty font. Print the cards on cardstock and cut on the lines.

Then, using your sharp knife, carefully make a slit on the top of the pinecone. It doesn't need to be super deep, just enough to hold the place card.

Put the placard in the previously cut slit and you are good to good. See, easy! Place on your table and enjoy their adorableness!
