Fess up. Have you had a pumpkin spice flavored something yet in the past week? Or gotten just a teensy bit excited at the thought of crunching leaves under your fall boots that you’ve been dying to pull out of your closet?
If you’re still in summer mode, this post is going to completely throw off your mojo, y’all.
I’m already starting on a few fall projects around here. Shhh! Don’t hate me. After Labor Day, it’s fair game, right?
Over the weekend, I had some fall fun decorating our kitchen table and decided to whip up some cute little place card printables to place on these cable knit plates I got for 80% off during an after Christmas sale at Michael’s last year.
I think they still work for fall though, don’t you?
We always have big family events in the fall, usually with several random Saturday night dinners when we invite nearby friends and family over, Olivia’s birthday, and at Thanksgiving, we typically end up with over 20 guests at our house for the big feast.
It’s total chaos but the good kind of chaos.
But even though it’s lots of prep work getting ready for company, I get completely giddy every time. Because it’s one of the biggest reasons Robert and I take so much time to work on our house; it’s so we can invite our loved ones over and make them feel as welcome as possible.
I love that a simple little place card, just a simple paper leaf, can maybe, in a way, communicate that we’re glad they’re here.
I’ll be sharing more fall goodies over the next couple of weeks!
For now, you can download this leaf placecard printable here:
And there’s a blank set too in case you’d rather write your guests’ names on them. Print them on parchment paper and you’re all set. 🙂
