This year is all about simple living for me. I challenged myself to create the Thanksgiving table decor for FREE…yes free. I have a load of craft and creativity supplies in my stash…so I decided to use them to create this fun and natural table decorations for my Thanksgiving feast.
I had the silver tray…I love to use my silver on a daily basis. Why have it if you keep it stored away? Enjoy your beautiful possessions!!!
I filled the tray with split peas, but any legume would do for this display. Hubby and I went for a walk in the woods and gathered the southern pine cones. They are larger than most. I also picked up some fall leaves to sprinkle among my tray. It is simple, but beautiful.
Thanksgiving Gratitude Place Cards
I created a gratitude card on my computer. It says Thanksgiving 2011 – I am grateful for… Each member of your family can write their thoughts. Include a pencil or pen. I am sharing them with you. Just click on the image and download the PDF.
I glued the card onto the green cardstock and cut around it with the decorative scissors. I then place it in the grooves of a pine cone. I will place this on top of the plates and each person at my table can write what they are most grateful this year. This cost me nothing to do!!! For that I am very grateful.
Let me know your simple ides below…
