I shared with you last week that my family had an early Thanksgiving. We celebrated last week, due to a family need. People are the most important part of our traditions and celebrations, so putting my parents’ needs first, simply meant we would celebrate the holiday a couple weeks early with our daughters and their families.
You know what? It was really great to be doing this holiday ahead of time!

I’m planning on hosting Thanksgiving for my family this year. I’m not going
all out with decorations and table decor, but I want it to be special, memorable and fun.
I also want it to be stress-free as possible! For that reason this week I plan on getting some things done ahead of time. Here’s this week’s list:
Iron Tablecloths and napkins
Make pie crusts
Butterhorns Make menu
Get centerpiece ideas ready
Let me share some of my ideas with you, in case you could use a little inspiration, too!
One year I made these with sugar cookie dough and piped names on them to use as place cards. So easy!
Why not turn the cheese ball appetizer into a cute turkey?
Gathering leaves from outside to add a touch to a napkin is so pretty!
So easy yet so elegant!
If you don’t have a tablecloth or if you have children dining at the table, a roll of brown paper is a great alternative!
Why not try a little un-traditional color combo?
I love the simple beauty of the pumpkins, nuts and greenery as the centerpiece.
Simple and inexpensive idea! Use the same flower in canning jars and line them up down the center of the table!
Here’s an idea to start even this week! What a great collection of gratitude you’ll have by the time Thanksgiving arrives!
Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? What could you be working on now so you’ll be less stressed when the holiday arrives?
