Thanksgiving Collection | Acorns, Velvet, Berries, Kids Crafts, Thankful For Placecards & Organizing Tablets

Last year I didn't do a proper Thanksgiving Collection.  It is easy to sort of sweep Thanksgiving in with Fall decor, or just move right on to Christmas - but I LOVE Thanksgiving.  The traditions, the pretty tables, the menu, the schedule of the day, the crisp air, the crackling morning fire, pies baking... all of it.  So this year, I will not move on to Christmas, we will fully celebrate all that is Thanksgiving.  

"We Are Thankful For" Placecards, an Everyday Occasion annual tradition.

Vintage Turkey Prints, $4-6

The New "The Plan" Planning Tablet, 25 sheet tablet, $12

I've been thinking about this concept for a while.  Finally, I've come up with this simple tablet that helps me to get organized for dinner parties, holidays - even home projects.  Here, you can see, I've listed some items to help get me organized for Thanksgiving.  I'll show more examples of how I use this soon!

Is there anything better than a "Kids' Table" at Thanksgiving?

This one set like a bit of a nature hunt + craft table.  Lots to see and touch.

Place settings don't have to be complex - just something simple and special.

Paperwhites are classic Holiday.  They bring a fresh scent and stately life to homes during the winter months.  These bulbs are extra large and a beautiful chestnut color.  They will bloom tall, white blooms.  I begin forcing them indoors in October, then they are the perfect gift for Thanksgiving and Holiday Parties.  They take about 5-7 weeks to bloom.  

I hand-stitched a little "H" on our Hemstitch Napkins.  It took about 5 minutes and gave so much charm to these simple staples.

Pies : )

Mini Leaf & Acorn Cutters easily give a classic pie a new twist.

This collection focuses quite a bit on table settings.  Really, besides making sure your home is cozy and comfortable, setting the table really is the centerpiece for the holiday.  I have created seven individual schemes based on Napkins and Table Linens I have available.  By combining a print with a velvet ribbon, coordinating candle and little sprig of this or that, each scheme is the essence season.
