Making simple dessert cups with Cuplettes

Cuplettes are unique silicon baking trays that come with attachable smaller cups that snap in place after filling the larger cup. They come in two sizes. I'm using the smaller ones for these dessert cups. You have to get these, they're so cool, easy and fun. You can buy them here

DIY: Herb Scented Place Cards

Here's a simple, last minute Place Card DIY project.

You'll probably have all the materials on hand come Thanksgiving Day. Like card stock or heavy paper and your typical holiday herbs like Rosemary, Thyme and Sage...even a sprig of dried flowers will do.

I created my cards in a design program and printed on white card stock, but you can simply use card stock in any color and cut into 3 1/4  x  2 3/4 pieces, then fold in half. (I scored mine for a cleaner fold.) Use a hole puncher or poke a small hole in the middle of the fold with the tip of a scissor or knife. Write the name of your guest on the front.

Try using a gold marker for a touch of sparkle.

 Insert your sprig of choice, place your card on the table and enjoy the aroma of the holidays.

TRY THIS on the BACK of the CARD
• Have your guests write what they're thankful for. 

• Write why you're thankful for their friendship.

• Write their name on both never know if the person sitting across from them has the best memory!

• Or simply write "Give Thanks".

Happy Thanksgiving!
