If you wait until after Thanksgiving to start decorating for Christmas then a simple Thanksgiving table is perfect. Pull together your left over fall finery and create one last harvest table before you start decking the halls…
I used the tiny velvet pumpkins at each place setting (Tutorial posted HERE) along with a little mercury glass votive (these are $2.50 at Walmart!)
Cut squares of paper bags and gave each guest a tree branch pencils…a fun thing to do at dinner: have everyone write their names on the paper then pass the paper to the person next to them…that person writes one thing they are thankful for about the person who’s name is on the paper, then pass the paper around until everyone gets back their own paper…everyone can either read their list during dessert or take the paper home for reading in private…
Pumpkins…burlap wrapped candles (posted HERE)…clips of an autumn garland and a burlap table runner…beautifully simple.
The Thanksgiving table is a means to an end, a way to create atmosphere for celebrating family and friends and all the blessings bestowed on us during the year.
So keeping it simple is a very good thing…
Here’s another Thanksgiving table I did: (Posted HERE)
And here’s a fun autumn table with Woodstock Outlet! (Here)
I hope you got a little inspiration!
