Juggling With My Party Hat On ...

One of the things that I love to do in my free time, spare time, wee hours of the morning, is to plan a party or style an event. For quite a few years I toyed with the idea of pursuing it as a profession. But then I decided I couldn't take it if my work became too open to criticism ~ eeek ~ so mostly I just do it on the side to help out family and friends and ALL OVER my own house! One of my great sources of inspiration when it comes to styling anything is Amanda Parker from Shindig Parties to Go. That gal has got some party-swag!!! So, with the help of Amanda, we styled Thanksgiving!
We have a rather large extended family here and so I needed 4 different table settings. No problem!
That took care of the adults, but just about the most fun I ever had was styling this kid's table ...
We had pinecone turkeys as crayon holders and favors hidden in tissue paper corn on the cobs.
It was so cute when it was done that I wanted to sit there instead!
Then I made a brown paper grocery bag turkey and stuffed it with popcorn for my nephew's little ones!
Uncle Dean helped them tear into it :)
We had everyone there fill out a Thankful Tag and then used it to create a banner for the stairs ...
It was a blessed day!
So head on over the river and through the woods to Amanda's Shindig Parties to Go. I believe the kid's table goodies are even a freebie! And checkout that adorable polka dot pumpkin!!
