Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas

Today is the last day of November, so I figured it wasn't too late to show some 
of my Thanksgiving Table Setting ideas.  Plus, my table actually ended up being kinda Christmas"y" 
so the centerpiece could be used as a Christmas Table Centerpiece too.
I had the large vase, added some glass beads, a cream candle, 
tied some ribbon around the vase, and inserted twigs under the ribbon
added 5 small candles, some pine cones and berries & this was my centerpiece
I gave a light coat of champagne gold paint to a few pine cones
and hot-glued them to the middle of the ribbon
another view of the centerpiece table arrangement
I cut the leaf shapes using my Cricut with the Stamping/Estampage cartridge
Stamped the names, added a pine cone & this is what each setting looked like
The table cloth & red napkins are from Walmart, and the gold napkins are from Tuesday Morning.
This is a quote from a card found in my brothers wallet the day he passed away (16 years ago)  
My family had a memory night for him this month, and the quote was found, once again.  
I thought, how fitting for the Thanksgiving Season, so I printed it, added some cute little elements to it, and had my husband read it before we ate our yummy Thanksgiving Feast... 
It now sits on my photo bulletin board (I'll show you that someday too) 
AS A DAILY REMINDER:
To be grateful for all God has done in our lives, 
not to take anything for granted, and to remember:
When God gives it, It is precious!

Hope your Thanksgiving was truly blessed!

  2. I love how you chose to use the saying that we found once again in Jim's wallet. Oh how he is missed. I love how you had your husband read it before eating dinner, very fitting. I'm truly grateful for you & your family. Love to you all! =)

  6. Oh your table is beautiful! LOVE the twigs and I am a HUGE pinecone fan. Made ornaments last year to cover my tree in pinecones and a pinecone 'tree' like one I had seen in Target. I even used them again this year on my mantle. I can't get enough of them. I am loving bringing in nature. I'm a new visitor and can't wait to browse your blog.
