Place settings don’t have to be just for the holidays, they can be for any gathering around the dinner table. They can also range from small paper cards to something more elaborate. For a fall dinner party, I’m opting for these simply adorable Burlap Pumpkin Place Settings. They are so easy to make and update, depending on who you have coming over.
small burlap pumpkins (Old Time Pottery)
brown organza ribbon
green linen ribbon
green cloth-covered wire
small paper doilies
black Sharpie marker
Cut off ~4 inches of the green ribbon. Fold the end 2-3 times then insert a corsage pin. Ungather the ribbon, keeping the pin inserted and write your guest’s name on the ribbon with the Sharpie (note: a fine point Sharpie will bleed less). Cut a triangle at the end of the ribbon so it looks like a banner.
Take the cloth-covered wire and wrap it ~5 times around the Sharpie to form a coil. Cut off coil with wire cutters then wrap the end around the corsage pin. You can make 1 or 2 coils per pumpkin.
Place the pumpkin on one of the paper doilies on top of the plate. Arrange your silverware and you are all set!
And, ps., my Fall Harvest Centerpiece is the perfect accent for the fall dinner table!
