Turkey day.

Only 2 days away!

I'm soooo excited to be having Thanksgiving at our house this year! Even though the guest list will be short (just my family, grandma & grandpa G, and hopefully some cousins for pie), I'm gonna do it up right. I've been looking online all night (during class!) to find cute thanksgiving-ish decor that is cheap and easy, since I am neither crafty nor rich. Here are some ideas I've found...

Cute little turkey guys.

And these are the place cards I'm gonna use. One of the bottom 2, probably the one with the acorns cause acorns are cute.

A thankful tree! Except mine will be a little (alot) less purple and alot more browns and oranges. Everyone writes things they are thankful for and hangs them on the tree. I found this cute template for the little leaves.

These are cute and simple napkin holder/rings.

I'm also excited cause I'm gonna make a floral arrangement, which is something I love to do. These are my inspiration.

Oh and these are some adorable placemats for the "kids table". I think I'll be sittin there so I can color on these.

And wouldn't it be fun if THIS was your tablescape? Maybe someday...*sigh*

What are some of your favorite ideas??

I'm not sure how much of this will come into frutation but hey, I've got good intentions. Hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving!
