Amazing Friends, have I got a super fun place card holder idea for your Christmas table today! I shared this post back in 2014 and it still makes me chuckle!
Every year I host my family for Christmas Eve Dinner, and I always try to come up with a fun way to mark each person’s place at the table. My family always looks forward to seeing what I’ve come up with!
Are you ready?
Drumroll…I made us all Santa’s little helpers!
How fun is that? Just look at my Hubby in his cute little elf shorts! And look how thin I am! My babies are pretty darn cute too.
I found photos of everyone (Facebook was a huge help here) and printed them on cardstock. Then I just cut out their heads leaving their necks in tact…
To find elf bodies in abundance, I googled “elf costumes” and selected images and voila. I copied and pasted them all to a Word document and printed on cardstock as well.
A little glue pen action…
And my whole family has been transformed into Santa’s helpers! Come on, I’ll introduce you to everyone…
Here’s my parents:
My older sister and her family:
My younger sister and her family:
And my baby brother and his wife…
I sat them in these little ornament place card holders I found at Michaels.
I love this one of my brother…
And how about one more peek at my Hubby…that’s a pretty sexy outfit!
These were a huge hit at our Christmas dinner!
Don’t you think your guests would get a kick out of these?? My family always looks forward to seeing how I’ve sabotaged their favorite selfies!
Here’s another fun one from the following year:
They were also a big hit!
I have also dressed everyone up in ugly Christmas sweaters! (Just google images for “Ugly Christmas Sweaters”.)
I hope you’re inspired to give your Christmas guests a good chuckle this year!
