My Favorite Holiday

Thanksgiving is easily my favorite holiday.  Macy's Day Parade, Food, & Family...What's not to love?  I get really excited to think of all the things I could make for our Thanksgiving feast.  Oh boy, this could be dangerous.  Last year, my older sister and I hosted Thanksgiving at my moms house.  We had so much fun, we wanted to host it this year again.  I hope that it turns out as great as last years!

Our Thanksgiving dinners are usually no less than 25 people.   Ummmmm, does anyone know of a table that seats (comfortably, key word here!) 25+ people?!  We usually make a train of tables and put the food in the middle.  To make it easier for everyone to get what they want we make two plates of each side.  For example, there are two plates of mashes for those sitting on one end and another for the farther end.  It makes it easier for everyone to fill their plates instead of passing them around.  And to save some room, I think that this year we're going to make a special "kids table"

The "table cloth" is actually butcher's paper.  Add some crayons and let the fun times begin!

A cute way to personalize a table setting is using small pumpkins as card holders

You could definitely keep the pumpkins their natural color, but I think I'd like to spray paint ours.

 Since the number of people outweighs the number of place mats I have we use scrapbook paper.  These are cheap and easy and they're fun to mix and match.

 How about a fun, easy, and cheap way to greet guests with the holiday spirit?
Love it.
