Is it Thanksgiving yet?! Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday – spending time with the people you love and reflecting on all the things you have to be thankful for. One of our favorite traditions is to go for a walk Thanksgiving morning (you know so we can eat a lot of pie and not feel as guilty about it). I have the kids collect the best fallen leafs they can find, then we come back home for some hot chocolate. Once it’s time to set the table we take the leafs we collected and scatter them on the table. It’s a beautiful (and free!) way to decorate your Thanksgiving table! I threw some Flair Exchange Confetti in the mix just for fun!
The one thing I don’t like about Thanksgiving (and well, pretty much everyday) are all the dishes! I love that at Fancy That we carry some really lovely (and sturdy) paper plates and napkins. If you want to get a little fancier, wrap your silverware in a napkin, tie it with twine and add a small leaf. It looks amazing and is super easy!
So there you have it – a fun family activity, free table decor and a cute and easy place setting!
What fun family Thanksgiving traditions do you have? We’d love to hear about them, so leave them in the comments below!
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, ’cause all the cool kids get to sit at their own special Thanksgiving table!
Make this years kids table the place to be! Get your kids to help with the decorations and table settings – they’ll feel super special and they won’t be asking to sit on your lap while you try to eat your dinner (okay, they probably will, but you might get at least 5 minutes of adult time!).
I had my little darlings help make a Pumpkin Turkey! It turned out so cute and we had fun putting it together!
Here’s how we made it…
We placed our Pumpkin Turkey, who we affectionately call Joey, at the head of the table – he will keep an eye on the kiddies to make sure they eat all their food, even the turkey (so sad…)
Do you have a designated kids table? We’d love to hear what you do to keep your little ones, or not so little ones occupied while the grown-ups do boring grown-up things at their table.
Everyone knows that the best part about having a big Thanksgiving dinner is having leftovers the next day! This year send leftovers home with your guests in style with Fancy That’s FREE “Thanksgiving Leftovers” printable (scroll down to the bottom of the post for the printable)!
