Happy November Everyone!
Thanksgiving is all about family, friends, and gratitude. Of course, setting a great table helps too! In everything I design for private clients, I like to make sure there are lots of personalized touches to their events. This is definitely true for a holiday like Thanksgiving!
I always suggest putting centerpieces together as a collection, including different colors and texture. I have put together a few fun, personalized, and stylish ideas for your table this year!
- Print the image on vellum paper. TIP: Make sure you are printing the image on 8″ x 10″ paper, so it wraps properly. (If you’re not comfortable printing, places like Kinkos and Staples provide this service to ensure the perfectly printed image.)
- Take the printed image and wrap it around a 9″ or 10″ glass cylinder. Simply tape the picture with flat scotch tape, drop in a candle or votive and voila, a gorgeous centerpiece that is meaningful to your family and all the people for whom you are grateful! 🙂
Vegetables as “Flowers”
In my family, every Thanksgiving we always go around the table and say for what we are grateful that year. Why not document our gratitude? These note cards are a really beautiful way of expressing for what you are grateful.
The best part is that they can become part of a tradition. Keep the cards and read them throughout the years. I think it’s a new tradition we’ll be starting this year. 🙂 Try these sites for gorgeous cards:
When you have younger children, a kids’ table is a must! I always suggest making the table vibrant and fun. Set crayons at every place setting with Thanksgiving-themed coloring placements and a few other activities to keep them occupied for as long as possible.
