FREEBIE: Happy Thanksgiving Printables and Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas!



Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, and in-keeping with the theme I'd like to give thanks to you for stopping by Bird's Party Blog and for taking the time to read! :)

Last weekend, my family and I went chestnut foraging in the woods nearby, and came back with a (huge) basketful of free goodies! After savoring the fruits of our not-so-hard-labor, I felt really blessed, fortunate and above all inspired! So I decided to create some Thanksgiving printables and make them available for you for FREE as my way of saying thanks to YOU! :)



 

I also set up a little inexpensive and quick to set up, Thanksgiving tablescape using a lot of foraged items too! Autumnal leaves have the most beautiful colors and hues, so perfect to add interest to a table centerpiece. I tucked vine leaves in among the chestnuts in a large wicker planter, and used the empty chestnut outer shells as place-card holders!

The wicker baskets were believe it or not, from a charity store! Oh, how I love a bargain!! :)

The logs also act as a point of interest, and came straight from the log pile. You can also use these to prop up plates and add height and interest to your tables!


Hostess gifts in cute brown boxes with raffia as ribbon, and a little vine leaf to complete the packaging! The foraged chestnuts and acorns, as well as scented candles (vanilla, cinnamon, mulled wine...)  help to add color and depth,  and complete the d├ęcor very nicely! :)
