Thanks a Lot! Thanksgiving DIY

I love Thanksgiving!  It is absolutely my favorite holiday. Why?  Because it’s all about gratitude.  Oh, and FOOD….and you don’t have to buy any presents….and it’s only ONE day unlike Christmas which is now an entire month!

Anyway, I’m looking foreward to my turkey, my stuffing and my family.  Here are a few things you can do yourself to make the day joyful, fun and yummy!

Super cute and easy to make..gobble gobble indeed.

Dollar/Thrift store plates and stickers???  I kid you not.   Some people are brilliant!

A Kid’s Table  that I want to sit at.  I don’t see why this can’t be an ‘adult table’ idea, but here ya go!

Okay, this looks delicious!  I might have to run out and buy myself a deep fryer just for the occasion!

Why is pumpkin anything so tasty?  I think it’s because pumpkins are ORANGE!
Pumpkin Pie Pudding…oh my.

If you’re having a big bash and need people to sit where they’re told, check out these cute easy place cards.  I always have a ton of pinecones by the end of winter…now I have an idea for them.  This would also be cool to label dishes so people know what is what.

Hand painted plates again!  Dollar store, here I come….(again!)

Lots of fun with this one.  Large or small frames with painted chalkboard.  Use it like this as a menu announcement, or use it as a greeting.marian parsons handmade thanksgiving ornate chalkboard frame thanksgiving entertaining holiday hgtv design happens design blog
