thanksgiving table

for those of you celebrating thanksgiving this week, are you in charge of anything? luckily no one will be subjected to my cooking this year -- a perk of being an out-of-towner -- but i am quite looking forward to eating it [my FAVORITE is the turkey & stuffing, but i'm also super excited for my mom's homemade pumpkin bread this year].

if i were hosting this year, i'd dress up my thanksgiving table a bit. this placecard from ferntree studio is sweet and simple and a cute way to let people know where to go:




here's a fun diy craft -- use fun autumn stamps to decorate paper napkins for a little added touch before guests arrive:




or you could get really crazy and make little individual menu cards for each person. so cute!

so what's your plan? are you dressing up your thanksgiving table at all? or are you like me and just there for the family and food? :)

  1. I love TG decorations!

    This year, Brian is doing the turkey and Green Bean casserole, and I am doing a chicken pie, potato gratin, a few flavors of homemade ice cream, and my girlfriend is doing Deviled Eggs and pie. Yay for TG food!
