Another Fun Place Card Idea!

Hello there! By now most of ya’ll know I have a thang for entertaining my Holiday dinner guests with fun place cards. Just the other day, along with 14 other inexpensive Holiday Ideas, I shared this favorite of mine:

Fun Christmas Place Card Holder Idea!

Those were from 2013. They were a huge hit AND they cost me hardly anything to make!

Today I’m sharing what I did to my dinner guests last Christmas! (I couldn’t post about it then because I would ruin the surprise for my guests!)

Instead of turning them into Santa’s little helpers, I did this:

He he that’s my lil Sis, Shirley. No I didn’t turn them all into Elves on the shelves, but that would have been funny too. I found holiday characters for each guest that fit with their names.

Here is my son, Jingle Bell Jack:

The photos look fuzzy, but that’s just because the pictures are printed on cardstock and not super high quality.

Here’s my poor Hubby…

He takes a lot of abuse from me.

Once I found fun names for everyone, I looked up each character as a costume. So for my Hubby, I googled images for “Gingerbread Man costume”. I found matches for everyone, then I copy and pasted them to a word document along with everyone’s faces. I was able to size each one appropriately there before printing on cardstock. (*Hint: To find good photos of your guests, try their Facebook pages!)

Here are both my boys…

I found the ornament place card holders at Michaels on clearance a few years ago, but I saw they had them this year as well.

Wasn’t that fun?? Don’t you think your guests would get a kick out of seeing themselves silly? You could also skip the pictures and just label each place setting with a fun name like, “North Pole Nana”. I’ve done that too.

If you missed 2012, you can see that here:

Holiday dinners don’t have to be stuffy, let loose and have fun!
