Friday Favorites–Thanksgiving

I’m sure I say this every year, but I can’t believe it’s nearly Thanksgiving.  Halloween just happened.  We won’t even get in a deep breath and it will be Christmas.  I love this time of the year, but this ride goes a little too fast sometimes.

With the time frame allotted to it so short, sometimes it’s hard to actually decorate for Thanksgiving.  That makes this Chalkboard Bunting from The Scrap Shoppe perfect.  Put it up early, write a cute Halloween phrase on it, erase, Thanksgiving, erase again and Christmas.


This Letter Banner from Parents magazine is quick and easy, making it a good option for a colorful last minute addition.

If you’re planning ahead for next year, check out this Give Thanks silverware decoration from SpoonerZ on Etsy.  The spoons just feel so appropriate for Turkey Day.


Thanksgiving is all about showing your gratitude, and I Heart Naptime shows you how to incorporate it into your décor with this printable.


It’s a great time to teach the little ones to be thankful as well, so make it fun with these Thankful Dry Erase Placemats from Baby Jayne’s.


When you’re hosting a big crowd for the holiday, sometimes it’s challenging to make sure everyone gets their utensils.  Solve that problem with these Be Thankful Utensil Holders from The Idea Room.  Let the kids color them while you cook!

I don’t think I need to say much about Tom the Turkey from Kiki Creates.  I mean, just LOOK at him.

This entire Thanksgiving Kids Table from Fiskars is adorable, but I’m very partial to that paper turkey leg.


These Gobble Latte Coffee Spoons from SheKnows look a little more complicated than they actually are, and there’s caramel under that bird.


I don’t know if a turkey has ever made me do the “Aww!” head-tilt before, but it happens every time I look at this Beaded Turkey from Craftily Ever After.  So cute!


Be sure to come back next week...I’ll be sharing a special discount code for my Etsy shop, my gift certificate giveaway on Sew, Mama, Sew and a Black Friday special from Silhouette on their electronic cutting tools!
