If you have a large family like me, Thanksgiving is always a great time of year. Family members from around the United States come to one central location to eat delicious food, play football, and then partake in the mad rush of Black Friday shopping. The bigger tradition in my family has always been the adult and kids table. I graduated to the adult table a few years back, but since I have so many young cousins, I still like to visit the kids table. In the past few years I have taken on the role of creating fun table settings for both the adults and kids so I thought it might be helpful to get you inspired with a few decorating ideas. From sophisticated and mature adult table settings, to the fun place cards and activities for kids, I hope that your Thanksgiving has tons of things to give thanks for. =)
The Adult Table
Who says we need to eat like the pilgrims? I love the modern warmth of this table setting.
Using chocolate bars with homemade wrappers as place settings =)
A fun DIY addition to the center of any table
The Kids Table
My grandmother did a great job of teaching me what Thanksgiving was all about. Have your kids put what they are thankful for on a feather and display this as their centerpiece.
Yummy treats that will convince anyone to eat all of their turkey first.
Edible place cards are always a winner with my cousins. Learn how to make these here.
