I got to host Thanksgiving at my house this year!
I actually really was looking forward to decorating the tables for an actual dinner party! I’ve never been able to do that before!
Here was the Adult Table: I used polka dot wrapping paper I found in the $1 section of target for a table runner. I had the orange placemats already, but I used argyle pieces of scrapbook paper on top of them and under the plates. I got the yellow floral plates at a thrift store a few years ago. I already had the basket (Pick Your Plum) and the pumpkins (Walmart) and the leaves (walmart). I printed off these utensil holders.
I also got to do a fun kid’s table since my niece and nephews were coming (as well as my own kids). I got these plates at Target last year and this is my first time using them! They are perfect for kids because of the different sections. I decorated their table with thanksgiving stickers and leaves and coloring pages. The table was covered with paper so they could color on it, too, if they wanted to. I made these cute suckers for all the kids. I just covered the suckers with brown paper and then glued on leaves for tails, googly eyes and felt beaks and gizzards. The kids LOVED them. And then of course all the yummy foods…
Don’t forget the PIE!!! My sister brought pumpkin pies and then I made an apple pie. I made the crust for the chocolate pie, too, but the filling I had Brenda help me with that! The chocolate pie was SO GOOD. You can find the recipe here.
It was so fun to hang out with my sisters family and with Scott’s mom on Thanksgiving! One of the best ones we’ve had in all the years we’ve been married.
