I always forget one important thing during any type of big event.

Last Minute PlacematIt’s easy spend so much time focusing on food and centerpieces that you forget something important like placemats.  Placemats are also freaking expensive, so here’s a quick way to DIY some stylish disposable ones.

Easy Thanksgiving Placemat

Run to Target or the nearest grocery store and grab a pack of tissue paper.  I like grey or camel, they’re like amped up neutrals.

Stamped Placemat

Find an old stamp, or make one!  It’s easy to make potato stamps.  If you don’t have one, you can use the end of a pencil eraser to make polka dots.  You can also use metallic sharpies or gold leafing pens to draw designs (like arrows or feathers).

Thanksgiving DIYGet your stamp on.  Tissue paper feels fancier than paper plates, but it’s kind of the same idea.  This is awesome if you have a lot of people coming over… easy clean up!
