I don't know about you, but I feel like Thanksgiving kind of gets the shaft when it comes to the holiday season. We start with Halloween (which is my ultimate favorite) and after that is over, all of the stores are already stocking up on Christmas decorations and candy. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing all of the Christmas stuff on the shelves, but Thanksgiving needs to have more of a presence as it is a day where we get to show our thanks for everything with which we have been so very blessed. Therefore this Thanksgiving I set up a little table for my family decorated with my "Give Thanks" printable collection.
I created a banner that says "Give Thanks" that I love so much because the photos that rest above the banner display two important people that I am so thankful to have in my life and I am grateful that my husband I were blessed with two healthy babies. The banner also serves as a great reminder, especially when I am in a bad mood!
Water bottle labels adorned with straws with coordinating flags are always an easy and pretty accessory to a table. Your guests can also take one as a souvenir if they like!
After Halloween, all the candy goes on sale, including candy corn! This was the perfect opportunity to purchase the Fall assortment with all of the little pumpkins. They look adorable and don't cost much at all!
One of my favorite items is the combination of the place cards and candy bar wrappers. This personalizes the table and allows you to give a gift that lets your family member or guest know that you are thankful for them! The nutritional facts also reminds them of how much they are loved and blessed, etc!
Remember this Thanksgiving to take the time to "Give Thanks" and show your gratitude for all that you have.
