When Halloween is over, Christmas is kicked into full gear. However, for people who live in the United States, you must not forget about Thanksgiving (and of course, Black Friday!) Although it is healthy to practice gratitude daily, Thanksgiving becomes a more special time to reflect on what you are grateful for, especially when you are surrounded by loved ones and delicious food. If you are hosting a holiday meal, and need some ideas to make it a little more special, then we have the perfect easy ideas for you.
After planning many events of all kinds, I realized that when you add a little personalized touch to something, your guests notice and really appreciate it. Name tags are something that is super easy, especially using our editable printables. Name cards are a nice touch for smaller, intimate gatherings, Friendsgivings, or even an event you are organizing at work. With our editable names cards, you can change the fonts, colors, and text however you want. Our free Thanksgiving themed name cards come in leaves and gingham, but there are no limits to the style you choose for your dinner.
Another customizeable item are menus that make your guests drool before they get to start grubbing! A menu is not so traditional, so it will add another wow factor to your dinner. Like our name cards, our menus you can download free editable, and customizable to your needs. Again, you have so many design options to choose from. Whether you are traditional. simple and modern, or rustic, there is a style for you. Don’t be afraid to list out ALL of your food items or add a special message to your guests. Let them know that they are in for an awesome, eat-til-it-hurts, put-you-to-sleep meal!
Water bottle labels are all print-ready – all that is required is you choosing which design you want to use. We have great designs specially designed for Thanksgiving. Take your pick!
Planning out your menu and cooking is the most important part, but let your crafty self shine through!
***Printables are easy and fun for all your special occasions and something you can do at home! You can always go to your nearest FedEx Kinkos, Staples or local print shop to have your decorations printed out, but if you want to make an investment for yourself to print at home, here are some suggestions for you.
I currently use this Canon Color ImageCLASS MF644Cdw All-in-one printer – it is perfect for the office because it scans and faxes (if people fax anymore?) The best thing about it is that it is FAST because it is a laser printer, and wireless. There is no need to hook up any cords anymore. For replacement toners for this printer, it is always advisable to use Canon products for most effectiveness. However, another alternative is Uniwork’s compatible toner cartridges. Having cardstock at home is always useful for printable projects like these. Neenah is a trusted brand for paper and 65lb card stock weight is suitable for name cards and menus. A brighter finish also makes your prints pop up a little more.
