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.
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!
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!
