Thanksgiving is a time of family and friends, of sharing a great meal with people you love and appreciate. It’s a time to let those you care about know just how much they mean to you and while I’m sure that means a lot to most people to me it means even more. You see, my birthday always falls right around or on Thanksgiving. So for me not only do I spend the day with people I love giving thanks but also I spend it with people I love celebrating that I was given life at that time too. This year my birthday not only falls on Thanksgiving but it’s a big one for me. This year I turn the big 4-0 and to say that I have spent a lot of time dreading this I have recently come to realize that this day should be a celebration instead and so I am going to give Extra Gum to my family with these festive Thanksgiving place card favors.

I thought a great way to show some thanks to everyone in my family who has been there for me would be to make their place cards this year into a little gift. I created these leaf print place cards that fit perfectly on the packages of Extra Gum so that every member of my family will know that they are special to me and that I appreciate them because while it may be my 40th birthday, I would not have been here without my parents and everything they have done for me and how much they have cared for me. My life without my siblings would have been lonely growing up. Who would I have had to play with or fight with? My brother-in-law and soon to be sister-in-law I am thankful for because they have brought such happiness and completion to my siblings. My nieces and nephews I am thankful for because I love them to bits and am blessed to have each of them in my life. My husband, who I have been with nearly half of my life. Who I have grown and changed into the person I currently am with and who has helped me raise some pretty great kids. Finally, my children who complete me in a way that I could never possibly have imagined before them and who I love to the moon and back. Basically, this is a way for me to thank everyone in my family for putting up with my brand of crazy for all of these years.

To make your own #ExtraGumMoments this Thanksgiving you can print these Thanksgiving place cards and attach them to a package of Extra Gum with some double-sided, sticky tape.


To make the place cards even more festive, wrap the napkins and silverware in some burlap and scrap fabric for a rustic look. Then place the Extra Gum place card favor on top of it.
