Thanksgiving is a holiday where we share our appreciation for life, love, health and family.  What better way to do that then to customize individual name cards for each of your guests?  You can make drink tags with your guests name on them, candle place cards, and even notes of appreciation that your company can take home with them and cherish forever.

Once everyone has located their seat, a creative idea would be to have each guest fill out a gratitude card.  A gratitude card can be made of any paper material.  You can include and envelope if you chose and these notes can be shared during dinner to bring the spirit alive or placed in a basket where each person randomly selects one to read out loud over coffee and dessert.  You could also use leaf shaped paper and have each guest add their leaf to a tree, constructed out of twigs from your backyard and hung with inexpensive yarn from the craft store.

Lastly, if time doesn’t allow for the extra crafts ideas, pick a local charity to contribute to and ask each of your guests to bring a canned good or non-perishable item and drop these items off while running errands.

However you decide to spend time with your family, Stanley Homes would like to thank you personally for making us a part of that experience.  We are greatly honored you chose us to build you a home to share your life and love for family in.
