My First Table Setting Post!

Hello! I'm so glad you are here! Did you all have a nice Thanksgiving? If you are like my family, we had way too much food. We were so full (and tired), but it was all so good! We had the traditional turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and rolls. We also had sweet potato casserole, cranberry jello salad, deviled eggs, a turkey cheeseball, and for desserts, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and spiced cake with cream cheese frosting. What did you have for your Thanksgiving Dinner?
We had eight of us all together and we all managed to sit around the same table at the same time, now that I have a bigger table this year. We always had to set an extra table out into our living room and be split up when company came over to eat because of the layout of my kitchen. We had no room with so many of us in the kitchen trying to cook, and that's when I decided that our bar had to go.

Thanksgiving Wreath

+ Thanksgiving Wreath +


Happy Friday! I'm so glad Friday (and you) are here! It's been a long week for me. Has it been a long week for you?

I'm getting ready for Thanksgiving and wanted to share a Thanksgiving Wreath that I made for this holiday coming up.





For this project you will need:

1 Styrofoam wreath
3 different type ribbon (I used 2" wired ribbon with Fall colors that I purchased at Michael's)
3 small faux leaves
Hot glue

I don't have pictures with the step by step instructions, but this is easy to make.

First, I wraped the Styrofoam wreath with the Fall plaid colored ribbon. Then, I made the bows.



The first bow was made with plain, wired burlap ribbon.

Next, I used 1" orange ribbon with some sparkles and I placed it right on top of the burlap bow. 

Added three small faux leaves to the center of the small bow and glued the bows to the top of the wreath!  Easy peasy!!

You can see how I made the bows here.


I added my new wreath to a peg on my shelf that a I have in my craft room.


I added the "Give Thanks" ribbon (also purchased at Michael's) across the whole length of my shelf.


Here is a printable that I love. I found it at Debbie doos! I framed it in a black frame that I had and placed it on my shelf. Don't you just love John Lennon?


Thanks for looking.

Have a nice weekend!
