Colorful Thanksgiving Party Details:This is what Jennifer said about planning/styling the party-

“Thanksgiving is traditionally brown and orange and all sorts of wonderful fall colors, but I became completely taken with the colors in Love the Day’s Thanksgiving printables collection. As soon as I saw the wonderful bright colors, I was designing a children’s table in my mind.

This was really a very simple design to pull off and would make your younger guests feel extra special at Thanksgiving. The best part is that I used what I had on hand, making this an inexpensive mini party.

Placesettings
I started with a white, floor length tablecloth and layered that with a plum tablecloth square. Next came green placemats. (I already had these placemats, but if you don’t want to pay $2-$4 each for woven placemats, just use scrapbook paper.) I folded an orange napkin long-ways and topped it with a yellow melamine plate.

Mini-splurge: Any time I need chocolates, I turn first to The Frosted Petticoat. Their chocolates are always delicious, and I’m not even that big of a chocolate-as-candy person. I hope you can see the variegated colors in these chocolate leaf lollipops – each one was so gorgeous! (You can see their chocolate leaves on my mini pumpkin pies.)

Centerpiece
We have wild turkeys walking through our backyard pretty regularly, so a faux turkey was a must for me. I used my Silhouette machine to cut feathers out of patterned papers from Love the Day’s collection. (You could free-hand cut these out.) I topped Mr. Turkey (as we started calling him) with a Love the Day pilgrim hat.

Leftovers
There is no reason why leftovers can’t be cute. Let them have {cute} cake! I found these darling boxes at Shop Sweet Lulu and embellished them with party circles from Love the Day and Rainbow Loom bracelets that my girls made in our party colors.

Dessert Table
I thought the kids would get a kick out of sitting by the dessert table, so that’s what we did. I made pecan pie, caramel bars, pumpkin pie and my grandmother’s apple cake. Now, I could personally eat 14 kinds of pumpkin desserts after Thanksgiving dinner, so I was pretty proud of my variety. Until. After a day of baking, I realized that every Thanksgiving dessert is brown. Booooring.

Lucky for me, I had a stunning wreath from Sweet Georgia Sweet to dress up my dessert table. I hung this from my bay window using a Command Strip Hook. Underneath the wreath, I used Love the Day’s banner to spell “Give Thanks.” I kept the serving pieces simple by choosing all white, and lined my trays with Lindi’s patterned paper.

Thankfulness
Of course, I had the kids tell me what they were thankful for. We used blank cards from Love the Day that I packaged in orange striped envelopes from Shop Sweet Lulu. Each guest got a washable marker and they used mini clothespins to attach their “thankful cards” to grosgrain ribbon on their chair backs.

Special touch: I love boys in bow ties. It doesn’t get much cuter, right? I freehand cut a bow tie out of Love the Day patterned paper. A little baker’s twine attached with tape and sweet Caleb had a Thanksgiving bow tie”.
