Hey, everyone. Another Wednesday is here…& Thanksgiving is TOMORROW! For some of you, the kids may be out of school, you have every burner on your stove going, & food dishes spread all over the place! My plans include bringing extra containers for leftovers, & a knife & fork. (LOL) Others, may not have any special plans, or to-do’s scheduled.
So, my wish for you today is…….Togetherness
Whether you decide to hang out with family & friends…or just chill alone, may you feel warmth & comfort, & most of all….. LOVE, this Thanksgiving like never before ❤ 😊
Hey! How are you? Do you have all of your Thanksgiving preparations ready? Well, since I wasn’t able to post this on Friday…I just had to share these great tips on how to present your meal with some extra pizzazz. Enjoy! 😊
Flaming Foliage Candle holders
Give colorful fallen leaves one last chance to shine…or glow, by repurposing them as decorations on glass candle holders. Dress up inexpensive glass candle holders with real fall leaves. The kids will have fun helping to gather leaves for this craft.
This idea, again…only requires a couple of glass candle holders, or you could even use your own large drinking glasses. Add some un-popped popcorn kernels & a pillar candle of your choice. Surround the outside of the glass with nuts or leaves…voila!
Glass Bowl Leaf Candles
A beautiful, simple way to embrace fall’s beauty. A glass bowl filled with an array of colored leaves with candles. You can also use flame-less candles to avoid any mishaps.
Mayflower Ship Place cards
Really neat huh? The pilgrims had a long voyage before hosting their first Thanksgiving. Luckily, your guests only need to walk to the dinner table! These paper ships double as both place cards & an easy way to serve dry snacks like popcorn, nuts, & dried fruit. Perfect for the kids table. You’ll hit a home run with the kids with this one…believe me. 😉
Great ideas right?
Now…my question for you is, What are YOU thankful for today?
Lesson learned, never leave the kids unattended!
Cool breezes & hot cider…
Pumpkin pies & cozy fires,
Freshly picked apples, filling baskets…
Warmed toes under thick blankets
Fallen leaves crumpling under our feet…
