Fall Tablescape – Seven Days of Tips 7

Fall Tablescape – Seven Days of Tips 7

What about the kids?
Love My DIY Home
Until now, I've shown you MY fall tablescapes. Today I'm going to share some links from other sites.
 
I just saved you a couple of hours searching online for ideas.
 
You're welcome.
I don't want to give away my plan for this year but suffice it to say that our kid's table is going to be as interesting as the adult table – and much more fun! It will be my focus this year and I'll show you after the deed is done.
 
Let's consider "kid boredom."
 
While we are finishing up the mashed potatoes and whipping out the gravy lumps, the kids are thinking, "I'm going to starve to death!" I suppose the big kids (our DHs) are probably thinking the same thing.

If you give them some appetizers and games all their own, you will not only make them happy, but give you a bit of peace while you finish up dinner prep.
 
It's OK to play with your food on
Thanksgiving Day.

  4. […] Candles work well with the outdoors because they are made of natural products.   Who doesn't like candles?   Look through your serving pieces and pair them with your candles and lanterns filling in with the natural things you scarfed from your yard.     I found this "pumpkin" at Goodwill for $3.00. The berries were clearanced at Jo-Anns for under a dollar. Pine boughs – front yard.   You can even spice up nature with a little silver spray paint. I painted these leaves last year.
