Christmas decorating is one of my favourite things ever! We aren’t allowed to decorate until after Yanksgiving (the mister’s rules not mine, though I agree), so I’m eagerly anticipating the upcoming weekend. Our decor is a bit all over honestly. The tree is pinks, silvers, whites and reds, while the decor is more natural. Everyone likes to style a bit differently so I found 3 different Christmas decorations looks: gold and black, natural, and colourful.
Pine cones are the perfect place card holder, which is why I’m not the first to think it up. Just do a simple search on Pinterest, they’re everywhere. The little notches are perfect for nestling in a piece of paper with your guests name neatly written on, making it a festive and easy DIY. I, of course, couldn’t use a regular pine cone (though they look lovely on their own). Nope, I had to spray that stuff gold. Oh yes.
- Pine cones
- Gold spray paint
- Card stock
- Calligraphy pen and ink
2 Cut out pieces of cardstock paper (approx 1.5×2 inches), one for each guest, and write their names on each one. You can use gold calligraphy ink or, if it’s not your thing, just the neatest hang writing with a regular pen.
3 Nestle each name card in the pine cones and place on the place settings.
Happy spray painting!

And I’m loving the thanksgiving printables. Anything to add a little personality to the dinner party! And don’t forget, there’s also these printable napkin designs.
Have a great weekend everyone!
