Last minute Thanksgiving table ideas!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my USA peeps! Today I have a super quick, easy, last-minute idea for your supper table. The supplies I used today are from around the house and from Papermart.

I am always running around last-minute. That’s why I love the idea of letting kids help out. A flower frog on the table with crayons of colored pencils in it is great for keeping people busy while waiting for the food!


The kids can make these shipping tag place-cards, they are pretty decorations and make a cute keepsake bookmark too.


We all have mason jars. By wrapping a ┬ábit of ribbon around them and placing them on a metallic gold doily we have an instant centerpiece. Don’t forget the basket for height and flat backed marbles for sparkle! You can find the beautiful crinkled paper here.


A roll of burlap mesh makes a reusable table runner!


I hope you have a happy safe holiday and even if you did not have a chance to use these ideas today you can try them out at your next dinner party! Happy crafting!

  1. This is nice and easy for anyone to do without having to buy a lot of special items.. Most people don’t have a whole closet full of props to stage a table–like we so often see in magazines and on many blogs as well.

    The way you added the extra lines to each letter of Jack’s name really enhances it. Good to know.

    I used my cardstock, ribbon and stamps to make favors to hold candy corn combined with mixed nuts–you should have seen how excited the adults were to have the party favors at each place setting today. .
