Sweet Thanksgiving Day Place Cards

Ever since I was little, my sisters and I were always in charge of setting the Thanksgiving table. I think that at a very early age I begin asking my mom about what we could use to decorate the table. My older sister would make place cards and as the years went by she would use her design skills to make personalized family tshirts and oven mitts. Yes, us D'Amato's love decorating for the holidays.

This year I am heading to Virginia to spend Thanksgiving at my parents house. I am not sure what my mom has planned for the table, but if I was hosting Thanksgiving this year, I think I might add a simple sweet place card to every one's setting. Caramel dipped lady apples.

I used the easiest recipe on these lovely little apples, you can find it here. However, because these little lady apples are so sweet and small, you can half the recipe to make 8-10 apples. Add a little gold sparkly tape as a decorative flag and place one by each guests place card.

I added granola to a few apples for a little bit of yummy crunch. My favorite place cards I use are from Kate Spades stationary line. How cute is this saying "Playing footsies is encouraged."I would place this one at my Beau's place setting for sure.

Simple and sweet. A nice treat placed beside your sweet guests. Enjoy! xoxo~Rebecca
