West Elm created this video to show us all how to trick out our Thanksgiving tables. It’s perfect for us last minute planners!



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 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!!
