Yesterday I shared a few tips for last minute Thanksgiving entertaining. Today I am super excited to share some tips on how to create a fun, festive, stylish, kid-friendly table. It’s really quite easy and cheap! Kids love color and they love activities. Put both on the table and you have won their hearts. Together with Target, I created a fun table that any kid would love to sit at.

 

I used the same flowers from the adult table and layered them on top of a Thanksgiving themed paper tablecloth. On top of the tablecloth is chalkboard paper and activity placemats. Everything is markable and writable. Kids never stop so keep the fun coming with games and puzzles. I also used turkey name cards that the kids are able to make. (Everything should still be at your local Target. I’ve also listed items available online down below this post.)

Kids love straws so I displayed a jar of paper straws. And of course a small pumpkins completes the look.

When it comes to the kid table, do not be afraid to use all paper products. Because my kids and their cousins are a bit older, I used some dinnerware and silverware. But when they were younger, I did all paper. It’s easy to use and completely recyclable.

Have fun and be creative. Kids except nothing less!!

Products available online- Straws, Chalkboard Paper, Owl Salt and Pepper, Small Mason Jar.

This post was created in partnership with Target. All opinions are my own.

This DIY is so pretty and Stephanie Sterjovski makes it so easy to achieve this fun thanksgiving table decor. Select this print (out of her many others) from her print shop and complement with your favorite greenery, a few mini pumpkins, and washi tape for a simple and gorgeous table top.

Happy weekend friends!! I wanted to show you some pictures of my Thanksgiving tablescape. It was fun hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year. Shane’s family made some delicious food while I created the ambiance. It was a good trade off!

My set up included bright yellow mums placed in a variety of vases and bottles, brown postal paper, my Grandma’s china and silverware, cute little hedgehog candles and polka dot napkins. It turned out fun and festive without being too cliche.

And then there was the kids table…

I used cute gold paper plates and cups just in case of accidents. The turkey name card holders were a fun craft project from Target that my kids and I did the night before Thanksgiving. The kids had a blast using the brown paper as their coloring book for the day. Cheap entertainment as the turkey was cooking.

Now it’s time for CHRISTMAS!!

Budget takes an important role in our holiday decisions.  With everything that needs to be purchased, most people can’t throw money into their tablescape.  Here is inspiration for a budget friendly Thanksgiving tablescape.  In this design, it’s all about mix and match.  Nothing matches but believe me, that’s a good thing!

Here’s the look:

Table Runner, White Ribbed Ceramic Vase, Carved Wood Serving Bowl, Teal Dinner Plate, Forged Flatware and Piecrust Sald Plate.

This next Thanksgiving look includes dipped wood, geometric patters and hand illustrated details.  A look like this will impress your friends and your friends parents.  Of  course it’s made complete with the right accessories.

 Here’s the look:

I’m pretty stoked that it’s the holiday season, friends!  Hope you are too.  The holiday closest to us Americans is Thanksgiving.  I love creating the tablescape for Thanksgiving though I haven’t in years because of going to other homes.  This year I thought I would dream up some fun tablescapes to inspire all of us.  This first one is created around a very natural aesthetic.  I threw in some black to modernize it a bit.  Here’s the look:

Gords, Kamal Snow Dots dinnerware via West Elm, Marimekko bowl, Recycled Wine Punt Glassware, Stellarina Runner via Anthropologie and Helena Rohner Munio Vase.

My friend Erin tweeted about this Thanksgiving goodness yesterday and I just had to show all of you.  It’s from 100 Layer Cake, of course!  If I was hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year, I would totally play off of this look.  Its party perfection!!!

Well, how was it??  Did you survive?  Did you succeed at eating?  Did you find many things to be thankful for?  And the most important question of all, are you ready for CHRISTMAS??!!

My thanksgiving table...

Last year I hosted Thanksgiving at my house.  It was alot of fun and alot of work.  This year we are having dinner at the in laws.  Of course decorating is my favorite part of hosting so that will be missed.  Above is images of my tablescape from last year.  I went with a simple white theme with natural elements.  What are you doing for Thanksgiving?  Are you hosting??
