Thinking about Thanksgiving

Posted by  ·  November 14, 2009  ·  Last Updated: November 14, 2009

Needing some inspiration for you Thanksgiving celebrations?

Keep the kids busy with the fun table ideas:

No Fuss Fabulous has a darling “Nuts About You Table.”

I posted some free “Color Your Own Table Decorations” printables over at Alpha Mom

Ideas for a lovely adult table

A beautiful table can be made simply with pumkins and fall leaves.


More ideas…

Simplified Bee show you how to set a formal table.

Creature Comforts shares some free printables. The circle tags placed on wire hoops would make great glass markers.

Erin Vale has some beautiful cards that would make a nice activity for everyone to record what they are thankful for.

Blog n’ Tell shows how to make some awesome candle holders!

It is never to early to start cooking!

From the Herald Tribune instructions for a make ahead meal.

Fine more food and table ideas here.

    These tables are so pretty! We have about 40-50 people for Thanksgiving so, we never have place settings :)

    The pumpkins make your table look so festive. And the maple leave and oak leaves have been so beautiful this year. I am sure the food will be enhanced by the lovely table.
