Lets Talk Turkey

Thanksgiving is this week?

Oh, wait....I guess that shouldn't be a question, but seriously
Thanksgiving is this week??


I've been in the clouds lately.... new baby, craft fairs, and everyday life stuff...
But it's time I got serious because everyone will be here and ready to eat!

The menu will be pretty simple.....you know the usual, Turkey, dressing (that's what we call stuffing here in the south), sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, yeast rolls, Derby Pie......

Okay, now I'm hungry!
But what about decor? And activities for everyone?

One fun idea I decided on.... let's finger paint!
Remember when I shared this fun family project




Another fun take on this project.....
paint the form of a tree and let all your guests add a thumb print with acrylic paint to your fall tree....
There we are...prepped and ready to paint
What great family keepsake for years to come!

There are some really fun free printables out there too...like this one from Paper Glitter! 
A fun way to keep the little ones busy while the turkey is cooking :)





Now, for the Turkey Day decor....


A simple centerpiece.....

Or something more.....

Wow...now that's a LOT more!


I love this idea of using veggies as candle holders.....


Now, this is more my style!


Well...it looks like I've got a lot of work to do! I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy spending time with friends and family!
I know I have so much to be thankful for this year!

Stay tuned, tomorrow I'll be sharing a round up of Thanksgiving Day printables to share with all of your guests!
