Getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday is not just about the delicious foods, it’s also about setting a gorgeous table. So, after you have decided whether to roast your turkey or deep fry it and you’ve found the perfect mashed potatoes recipe, you can start thinking about ways to spruce up your house and table for your impending guests.
Welcome family and friends with this Thankful Banner by All Free Holiday Crafts which would be great hung on a wall or on a mantle. This would be a great project that you could use your computer to create the lettering or maybe your die cutting machine to make the whole process quick and simple.
This adorable Felt Leaf Garland by A Beautiful Mess would be great for an accent around a kids table or on your entry way. The warm autumn hues will set the tone for your whole day and create a whimsical atmosphere.
Dress up your table with this Fall Leaf Table Runner by Curbly or Pumpkin Quilt Tablerunner by FaveQuilts. These are two great DIY Fall projects that will certainly grab the attention of your guests besides your Sweet Potato Casserole.
Once you’ve got the table cloth set, you can consider adding a simple centerpiece like this DIY Thanksgiving Centerpiece by Nibs, Nabs, and Knots. Tell your guests exactly where to sit and add a little sparkle to your table with these Painted Metallic Mini Pumpkin Placecards by Making Lemonade. Paired with some candles, this would definitely set the mood. And if you want to add a little cute to the holiday this year, consider these Turkey Napkin Ring Holders by The Hybrid Chick, that are just so cute you will want to gobble them right up.
Then you can use these Paper Bag Flowers by 52 Mantels on your table in place of real flowers. It will cut the cost of decorating and be a great way to recycle your brown bags into something beautiful. And as a finale to your amazing Thanksgiving meal, add this Banner Pie Topper Tutorial by Oh Happy Day to your favorite Pumpkin Pie or if you are me, Apple Pie. The cute little lettering done with alphabet noodles, can be a sweet touch to a very thankful day.
Besides the meal, do you make anything else for your Thanksgiving table? Please tell us how you make your meal special every year.
