Easy tips for a kid's Thanksgiving table.

November 26, 2014

Recently, I posted a few of my tips for making a fun + memorable
Thanksgiving kids' table, over at Catch my Party.

I love including the kids in the festivities!
Below, you can see what I created, and my easy to follow tips.

 Make sure you save a designated area for the kiddies
This could be a small area in your dining room, or even a spot outside. 
Here in California, we end up doing a lot of outdoor dining, even in November. 

Make your kid tablescape fun & inviting
You can add a placemat that has games & coloring options. 
Or you can set out a few coloring books for each guest. I also made sure their table had 
easy access to cupcakes & turkey shaped suckers. 
I found the suckers at Tai Pan Trading
They were displayed in a darling mason jar from Just Add Glitter
Marla creates such beautiful jars - I love using them in all of my parties! 

Set out smaller & easy to handle cups & dishes
There are lots of kid-friendly dining options, and cute plates are one of them! 
I scooped up these plastic raccoon shaped plates, and matching cups from Walmart. 
The placemat is from Hobby Lobby. 
My no-fuss table cover was nothing more than a couple yards of burlap from JoAnn fabrics. 

 Embellish a few things with festive printables
I came across a darling Thanksgiving themed printable set from Dimple Prints
They were offering a huge printable set as a free download on their site. 
Lots of fun items to choose from! 
I added the circle toppers to our cupcakes, and wrapped them with their printable wraps. 
The turkey straw flags were a hit, on the polka dotted straws, from Target. 


In addition to the kid’s table that was filled with treats & coloring books, 
we brought out our mini covered wagon! 
I added a bushel of fake vegetables, a fall wreath, and a gorgeous ‘Be Thankful’ banner.  

The banner is beautifully hand crafted with burlap, and festive die cut pieces. 
Rina from Mothership Scrapbook Gal did a fantastic job on it! 

 Not only will the covered wagon serve as a neat backdrop for our little guests’ area, 
but the kids will have a blast playing inside, and letting their imaginations soar. 
And when you mix imaginations, kids, family, and great food, 
you’ve created a recipe for a memorable event! 
It doesn’t get much better than that! 

Wishing you & your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
