It may not be Halloween yet, but it’s pretty darn close, which means I think it’s cool to start thinking about my favorite holiday— Thanksgiving! My family has never been big on assigning seats on Thanksgiving. In fact there are so many people that you are lucky if you even get to sit down at all! Nevertheless, I know that there are families and groups of friends who are a bit more formal and would make good use out of this month’s free printable— some lovely place cards!

These place cards can be customized by typing in your guests names using Adobe Acrobat, or you can feel free to handwrite the names for a more personal touch. I ran a tutorial awhile back on how to add text to a PDF, which you can find here, if you need any help! The font I used to type my name is called AW Conquerer Slab Light, and it’s free to download. You can find it here.

The back side of the card has a place for you to write in what you are thankful for, so it can be displayed to the entire table. What am I thankful for this year? The success of this blog, made possible only by all of you wonderful readers. Thank you, thank you!

    These are really pretty! Can I ask what the top font that says give thanks is, I love it!

      Thank you Bre! That font is one of my favorites! It’s called “bombshell” and I just added a link to where you can find it, at the bottom of the post (unfortunately this one is not a freebie). Enjoy!

    How do I add the names of my guests?

      Hi Laurie! I have a feeling I’m getting back to you too late (apologies!), but all you need to do is open the file in Adobe Reader (free download) and type your names in. If you’re running into problems, I shared a little tutorial on how to add your own text to a PDF here.

    These are great! These will definitely finish my table! How do I remove the grid lines from the document? It prints with the margin lines…Also, am I able to change the font or font color of the spot where you put the names?

      Hi Jamie! I’m super behind on responses— I apologize. I hope you were able to figure it out and that you had a nice Thanksgiving! There shouldn’t be grid lines showing up on the file, but there are lines to indicate where you should trim and fold. And yes, for future reference, you can change the font and color for the names. Please check out the instructions in this blog post (starting at step 3):
