thanksgiving table 2011

If there is anything I’m not the greatest at, it is setting a fancy table. It hit me yesterday that this year Thanksgiving is at my house and therefore I needed to come up with some sort of pretty table. I perused Pinterest last night and took a few notes, knowing that my budget for buying anything was about $10-12 max. I had it in my head that I wanted to do some floating candles in water, but did you know Target doesn’t have those? Boo. On to plan B.

I found this big candle on clearance for $6 and then bought this pack of small tea-lightish candles, also on clearance for $6. There went the budget. I dug out the remains of my burlap from my “give thanks” banner and found a piece of scrap cream to put underneath it. I raided the kid’s sensory box for some popcorn and other things and also used some fake pumpkins/gourds that I had also. Voila! I’m actually mildly impressed with myself!

On that note…Happy Thanksgiving to you all! May you all have a fabulous day counting all the ways that you have been blessed this past year! I know I’ve been blessed beyond measure.
