A Thanksgiving Table

Happy Thanksgiving weekend!!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! We had a fabulous Turkey Day! It was so relaxing...full of family time! It was perfect. We didn't have any visitors and we didn't go anywhere it was just us and we loved it! I thought I would share our Thanksgiving table since it was very crafty. I have been working on it here and there over the last few weeks. I like to keep things simple when it comes to the table so that the clean up is that much easier. I have never been big on "real" plates...cuz it's just more dishes to wash. I always find cute square paper plates and then we pull out the fancy wine glasses so we can have sparkling cider! So...under the flowers is a placemat type thing I made. I got the idea from Mary Jo's blog. It was so easy...you just cut out the large pennant die in different coordinating papers with your Big Shot and tape them together. The confetti circles are just extras from cutting out the pennants. I made some paper pumpkins for the center too. Each person got a pillow box with Andes Mints in them. I punched a big scallop circle from my giga scallop punch to put under the sparkling cider glasses. I used some dsp from last year that I had for the place mats under the plates...the colors just happened to match my Autumn Vine paper. The last thing is the name cards...I posted those awhile ago...I used some Doodlebug Rub-Ons for the names.
Have a wonderful rest of your holiday weekend!
chat at ya later!
