Last Minute Thanksgiving Ideas

November has really flown by and I’m not sure how I feel about saying goodbye to Fall. Although I’m excited about Christmas and looking forward to decorating our tree with the kids next week. I have a few last minute Thanksgiving Ideas to share that I didn’t get a chance to post earlier.

A few days ago I made this Happy Thanksgiving place card. Looking at it makes me happy! The colors and simplicity embody my style perfectly. I’ve said it many time times before but I like simple!

I made the place card by folding a piece of brown cardstock then using a Martha Stewart punch to scallop the bottom. The two center pieces are Lifestyle Crafts die cuts and the stamp is from Hobby Lobby.

Speaking of Martha Stewart, here are a few craft ideas from the expert herself to help decorate your Thanksigiving table:
-Decorate bottles or jars with Doily Lace labels to create a coordinating theme throughout your tablescape
-Martha Stewart also has “Woodland Wine Labels” that you can use to cover existing bottle labels. Add a little glitter or rhinestones for extra pizzaz!
-Another fun idea is to create doily lace coasters for your glassware.
-Create custom place cards by using punches and cardstock
-For a simple, classic look wrap napkins with bakers twine. I found a package of 6 Martha Stewart twine spools at Michaels. Use the brown and white for Thanksgiving then the red and white spool for Christmas!
