Happy Thanksgiving!

Candle and leaves centerpiece with Scrabble tiles Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. In our family it’s a day dedicated to spending time with one another, giving thanks for what we have, and indulging in some pretty awesome food! We refuse to allow Black Friday to take over and ruin this special day. It’s a time to gather around the table and enjoy each other’s company.

Every year we have Thanksgiving at my aunt and uncle’s house, and setting the table has always been my job – ever since I was a little kid. This year, thanks to Pinterest, I was inspired to make it extra special. I made place cards and used pine cones as the holders. I made menus and also incorporated scrabble tiles and leaf garland. If you can’t go the extra mile for the holidays, when can you? And you’d never know we were eating on a ping pong table. 🙂DIY Thanksgiving menusThanksgiving place setting with menuThanksgiving menu on plate and napkin Pine cone place card holderBig Thanksgiving tablescape Cozy, candlelit Thanksgiving table Fall candlelit centerpieceI hope your Thanksgiving was filled with as much joy and love as ours was!
