Let me share with you today a tradition that has been part of our family for as long as I can remember. In fact, I only remember three Thanksgivings when we didn’t have these beautiful Scripture Place Cards on our holiday table. Thanksgiving Place Cards that are filled with thankful scripture verses are a great way to start your meal on Thanksgiving Day.

My mother begin this tradition of writing out Thanksgiving or Thankful Scriptures Verses on cards and using them as place cards for our table.
We each take turns reading our card; usually ending with the “head” of the household who then prays for the meal. Even the youngest family member can participate. Usually it’s just something simple like “Hallelujah” or “Thank you God.”
Blank Gift Cards – or see shopping list below.
Card stock and stickers.
Some form of glue or tape, I used mounting squares.
I start with a master list of scripture verses and who would get which verse because I’m insanely organized.
Now, you can just write the verses out on the cards but I chose to type and print them out on the card stock.
Cut the scripture verses out to fit inside your card.
Using the mounting squares, attach the card stock to the inside of the card.
Now comes the fun part! Decorate the front of the card.
Here they are on our table the last time we hosted Thanksgiving.
When my mother first started this tradition she used index cards and hand-wrote the scripture verses. You can even have your children cut out leaves from construction paper and write the scripture verses on the back with your guests names on the front of the leaf.
