Crafty Thanksgiving Ideas

Just wanted to share some crafty table settings from an extended family reunion in Ohio this past weekend. I'm always on the lookout for unique table settings, so thought someone else in blog land might be inspired by these photos!  Aren't these pumpkins just too clever?!  Canning jar lids were spray painted then tied around a bundle of cinnamon sticks.  I didn't find out how the leaves were adhered to the glass candle holders, so will have to check that out further.

This "Thankful Tree" greeted us at the end of the buffet line.  Directions were printed on the tent card and blank paper leaves were placed in the bowl.

They also included a vase with some "end of summer" rosebuds that were still blooming in my aunt's flower garden.  How special that there were exactly the same number of rosebuds blooming as there were names of family members who had passed away over the years!

Thanks for stopping by...

That canning jar lid pumpkin is too fun!! Love that thankful tree. We did a family activity with a Thanksgiving tree. Every day you put something you are thankful for on a leaf and add it to the tree. A great activity!!
