Using square napkins, arrange letter stamps on an acrylic stamping block (prefold if you want to ensure stamping on a certain panel). Slip silverware into pocket made by folding. For place cards, stamp names on lightweight paper or old book pages; cut into leaf shapes and attach with colored string to miniature pumpkins or gourds.

    • Recipe Card Favors

      For a gift that really does keep on giving, send your guests home with a notebook of recipes from the Thanksgiving meal.

      You don't have to spend hours toiling over a hot stove to send your guests home with a flavorful reminder of Thanksgiving. Simply buy a few large jars of your favorite preserves or sauces; decant into smaller containers and wrap with pretty ribbon, adding a distinctive serving spoon for a final flourish.
