I’m so excited to be hosting some of my family for Thanksgiving Dinner this year. My mother-in-law is in the country for the first time in years. Her, my parents, and some of my siblings along with their children, and maybe even a few family friends will be coming to our home for Thanksgiving Dinner and I’m so looking forward to it. The food preparation is of course a big part of getting ready for hosting a dinner like this but with just a little extra time and some simple supplies, your normal dinner table can be transformed into an extra special place to share your holiday meal. These Thanksgiving Place Setting Printables are free and make a beautiful addition to the dinner table plus the interactive placemat will remind guests to give thanks for all they have! I hope these free printable Thanksgiving place cards and placemats provide your table with that extra special touch and help complete your Thanksgiving decor.

Instructions For The Free Printable Thanksgiving Place Settings:
Begin by printing out each of the free printables. You’ll need to print enough of the placemats for each guest, one or two of the signs (depending on how many you want), enough place cards for each guest (there are 6 per page), and enough napkin holders for each guest (there are 5 per page). Click on each of the following images and select the print option in the top right corner. Choose your paper size and print! Make sure to select “color” if you want to print them in the beautiful shade of brown they are shown in.
Place the “Give thanks” print into a photo frame and use as a Thanksgiving table centerpiece with pumpkins and gourds or other decor.
Free Printable Thanksgiving Place Cards
Use card stock to print the free printable thanksgiving place cards and hand write each person’s name. I used a paint pen with a fine tip in gold to write the names of my guests. Place next to each place setting.
Free Printable Thanksgiving Placemats
Place the free printable thanksgiving placemats under each plate, setting the plate off to the side slightly. This will leave the “I am thankful for” area open for your dinner guests to write down what they are thankful for. Place a pen or pencil at each place setting for guests to write with. Guests can fill these out while waiting for the Thanksgiving meal. Encourage guests to share what they have written during the meal.
Cut the “So Thankful” napkin holders into strips and fold them around your folded napkins. Place the napkins on each plate and carefully tuck a knife, fork, and spoon into each one.
This simple, elegant place setting and Thanksgiving Dinner table can be created with paper you probably have on hand, or at minimum by grabbing a few sheets of legal size paper. If you didn’t want a white background, you certainly could print it on any color paper you like. White went best with my dishes and cloth napkins! I hope you enjoy these free printable thanksgiving place cards, placemats, and napkin holders and that they makes the dinner table feel extra inviting and special!
