happy thanksgiving

November 26, 2009









Though I am a self-professed hater of cooking, there's one thing about Thanksgiving I can do well: the table. It's my favorite part of the preparations. I found some great downloadable "give thanks cards" at up up creative's blog. I printed them on craft paper and tucked a pencil along with the card in a folded napkin. The oak leaf place-cards took all of 15 minutes, cut with my favorite of all crafty tools...the X-acto, super sharp. Even little miss Polly gets a fancy table setting with her own oak leaf, a silver spoon and her fanciest bib. I also downloaded some fun speech bubbles and mustaches from Elsie Flannigan's blog. I think I'm going to stick a 'stache on the turkey, and the speech bubbles are going to be labels the other plates. I wish you all: good food, good times and good memories this holiday. Cheers!

Loved. Nobody could believe I simply printed them. I loved seeing what my parents wrote especially, and my husband. This was the first Thanksgiving that we hosted, I want the "thankful for" cards to become our tradition. Thanks, Julie.
