To share the holiday in true blogging style, I thought I’d leave you with a snapshot of our table yesterday… all inspired by this fun little brown and orange remnant from the local fabric shop.

The orange and brown solid burlap fabrics (from Ikea) made the perfect complimentary runner — no need to sew, the unraveling edges looked great as is. White milk glass bud vases from around the house made the perfect taper candle holders.

Creating the ‘Fun’ Table! Thanksgiving for Kids

Creative DIY Kids Table Thanksgiving

Don’t forget the kids this Thanksgiving holiday! We all remember holidays spent at the kids’ table playing and laughing with cousins. To create those special memories today, set up a kid-friendly space and keep it the ‘fun’ table by adding games, coloring, projects and creative decor. Here are a few inspirations that will make everyone excited to sit down! Country Living’s paper covered table is an excellent start (above).

Clever Idea! Thanksgiving Doggie Bags

Thanksgiving Doggie Bag Box

Here’s a clever little idea I found over at Country LivingThanksgiving to go boxes ready for your guests and all of their yummy leftovers! It’s as easy as a standard cardboard box (try your local bakery to purchase a dozen or so) and a cute handmade label (see adorable example below by MCC Designs on Etsy).
