I love hosting Thanksgiving at my house each year! The first thing I do is send out homemade invitations. Here’s the invitations I sent the last two years.
The second card is much prettier without the X’s, but since I already have around 25 people coming to Thanksgiving, I didn’t really want to invite anyone else! 🙂
I also like to make a set of place cards for the adult table and a different set for the kids table. At our house the oldest 12 people are at the adult table and everyone else is a kid, or kid at heart. Sorry Sean…there are so many people coming this year, you may get demoted.
The adult place cards all had leaves, but you can see each place card was a little different.
The kids all had turkeys, but again each turkey was unique. I love the googly eyes on the turkeys.
Last year I decided to make place card/treat combos. The adults got my husband’s delicious homemade fudge. At the State Fair Steve always wins second place in every fudge category he enters, so I tease him he’s the Second Best Fudge Maker in Iowa. Even second best is honestly quite a feat in Iowa!
Last year the Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin (Monthy subscription craft box) included these pie shaped boxes. We poured Steve’s fudge into pie pans and everyone got a pie shaped slice of fudge to take home.
The kids got these Curvy Keepsake Box turkeys filled with Reese Peanut Butter cups. I think most of the turkeys went home empty, but they loved having their names on the turkeys.
I also enjoy making little treats at Thanksgiving for my kid’s teachers and friends. Here’s a box that fits a full size Snickers or Milky Way.
You can find the directions to make the Snickers Box Here
Another box I’m giving away this year, is made with the Square Pillow Box Thinlit Die.
Please subscribe to my blog and come back next Wednesday when I’ll show you what I’ve come up with for Thanksgiving 2015! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
