Pine ConeFor some families, place cards are essential for holiday dinners like Thanksgiving. They can help make sure any family members prone to bickering are seated at either end of the table. If you haven’t used them in the past, place cards and place card holders can add a simple, elegant touch to any table décor. We’ve come up with a few frugal, all-natural place card holders ideas for any fall get-together:

Mini Pumpkins

Have you been using those mini pumpkins as decorations this fall? Why not use them to assign seats? Simply, cut some paper into a desired shape and write the name of each guest. Tie the paper to the small stem of your pumpkin and voila! You can also just write on the pumpkins themselves with a permanent marker. Consider buying one in silver or gold for a nice touch!

Pine Cones

Pine cones are an easy way to add a touch of the season to your home! Simply, put a pine cone in front of each setting and set your placecard between the prongs of the cone. You can also dip the pine cones in paint or simply paint the tips of each prong for a nice touch!

Fall Leaves

This might be the easiest option. Simply find some beautiful leaves outside and rinse them off. Use a silver or gold permanent marker to write the name of each guest. You can simply put them in front of each setting or place them on top of each plate to tell your guests where they’ll be sitting.

Wine Corks

This works if you save your corks after finishing a bottle of wine. Wine corks can be used for all kinds of fun crafts. To make place card holders, simply cut a small slit in the side of each cork with an Ex-Acto knife or serrated knife. Slide your placecard into the slit and you have yourself a nice place card holder.
The best thing about this option is that they can be used year round! Check out a tutorial here.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
