This post in the works for a while now and I am so excited to finally share it with you! I designed some thanksgiving printables that I am giving away for FREE for your Thanksgiving dinner event. While mine is staged for outdoors/poolside, this could easily be used anywhere.
Make sure to see my tutorial on how I put it all together here:
Also check out my tutorial on how I made the chalkboard charger here:
Here is how I did the all white pumpkin floral arrangement:
The links to the free printables are at the bottom of the post… so keep scrolling!
Now for the reveal…
Here are some of the supplies I used. Even though I didn’t end up using everything in this photo, I used most of it.
One thing not used in this tutorial was the black chalkboard looking ceramic dish in my tablescape but will look beautiful on my food table. I picked it up on clearance at Michael’s after Halloween for only $7.50.
The first printable is the “Grateful Tree”. This printable I sent to my local Staples store as an engineer print. I think it cost me $3.79 and was done in a couple of hours. Then I just glued it on some brown packing paper I got at the Dollar Tree. I chose this to match the other kraft paper I used for the leaves, utensil holder and banner.
But you could easily put it in a frame… I think that would look pretty great! You just cut out the leaves of the next printable and everyone writes something they are grateful for and use tape or putty and place the leaves on the empty branches.
The banner/bunting is the next printable. I printed them on regular printer paper cut them out and glued them to this kraft paper I picked up on sale at Michael’s, I then cut those out and attached them to a thin black and white rope with mini clothes pins…
But if you don’t have mini clothes pins, you could punch holes on either side at the top and string the rope through it.
Here is a picture with the two aforementioned printables:
The final printable is the utensil holder. This is really simple. Just print it on the cardstock paper of your choice. There are two per sheet so you just cut lengthwise Fold at the translucent line and glue down on the edges and let it dry thoroughly.
My goal with this project was to create texture. I did this by adding layers… tablecloth, wrapping paper, burlap runner, charger, plates, greenery, leaves, pumpkins, etc.
What do you think of the overall look? Does this make you as happy as it does me?
I love the deep “V” notch I cut in the runner for a some added interest. I show you my easy trick on how to do that in my video (link at the beginning of this post).
I like all the natural tones. I think the browns/tans, black, white, and greens work well together.
This year I am having Thanksgiving poolside since normally I am bundled up and freezing… I am taking full advantage of this WONDERFUL weather I am experiencing!
What I cropped out of the below picture is the fact they are putting in a new subdivision behind us so that isn’t fun, but they shouldn’t be working on Thanksgiving Day thankfully.
A little more eye candy for you…
Sunset dinner anyone? Or are you a midday Thanksgiving dinner family like us?
