I am (sort of) hosting Thanksgiving dinner at my house this year, so I wanted to make something cute for the place settings. Since I knew that we would either HAVE a new baby or BE HAVING one at any moment I asked my family in early October if they would want to bring the food to us. (wink, wink) I’m still going to clean the house, host the meal and make a side dish or two but I would rather do that than drive around from house to house with a newborn or severely pregnant belly. Everyone agreed to come here so my side and Mike’s side of the family are going to bring the main dishes, a turkey and a ham, and some other sides/desserts. Since I am getting off pretty easy I at least wanted to make things pretty. I used some things I had on hand and items from Le Box Boutique (one of my favorite ETSY shops!!) to create place setting boxes filled with after dinner mints.
I stamped a pumpkin onto the lid of each box and then folded them. I wrote the name of my guests on the kraft tags and embellished them with a leaf gem. Then I attached the tags using twine and a clothespin. The final part was to add a strip of washi to the front of each box and fill them with the dinner mints!
