Turkey Place Card Holders

This little gaggle of gobblers is a charming addition to any holiday table!  These turkey place card holders are made of sturdy metal and add a touch of whimsy to traditional dinners!

I was lucky enough to find them at an after-Thanksgiving sale a few years back, and I love using this set in holiday entertaining.  When a place card is put inside the holder, it often obscures the feathers of the turkey so I make feather-shaped place cards out of colored card stock to stick into each one.  The feathers fan out like plumage and add a touch of extra color to my place settings.

If you have children or young guests joining your family, you can have them draw and cut out turkeys from card stock or construction paper to mark each place at the table.

When I was young, this was my “job” each year for Thanksgiving — I guess it stuck with me as I aged!
