Apple Place Cards

Can you believe October is already here? It’s time to start gearing up for holiday entertaining, believe it or not, so I wanted to share a really simple but pretty idea I came up with for place cards to decorate your table. These are natural, inexpensive, quick, and your guests will love them…

Apple Place Cards for Thanksgiving

– apples
– chalkboard labels
– twine
– scissors
– white paint marker


Step 1: Place a chalkboard label on each apple and use a paint marker to write the names of your guests.
You can cut your own labels from chalkboard vinyl, or you can just buy pre-cut labels like I used. They’re easy to find in craft stores as well as places like Target, Walmart, etc. If you prefer to use real chalk to do the writing, you can, but I went with paint marker because I knew it wouldn’t rub off and make a mess.

Step 2: Wrap your apple with twine, tie a knot, and cut off the extra.
I like the rustic feel this gives, and it’s easy to do {well, except for when it keeps trying to slip off the apple while you’re tying it…}.

That’s it! It’s seriously that easy. It’s also inexpensive and your guests can totally disassemble them and eat the apples later if they want! There’s no glue involved; just slide off the twine, peel off the sticker, give the apple a good rinse, and voila, it’s tomorrow’s snack.
