Kids Thanksgiving Table-Repost

I have received so many comments about this because it made Tip Junkie last year
 (I’m so grateful) that I’m reposting. 
 This was one of the first set of printables I ever made 😉 
Happy Thanksgiving!

I am so glad that it is November. I am not a huge Halloween person. I like the actual night but not a big fan of the decor (not that into the colors.) 
So we are moving on to my favorite holiday THANKSGIVING!

The idea for this table was for the kids to have fun, entertain themselves
while making it cute and festive at the same time.
You can download all the printables free  for your Thanksgiving “Kids” Table. 
I hope you like them 😉
What’s Included:
Happy Turkey Day Banner
Invitations
Place Settings
Cones
Turkey Cut Outs
If you would like your place settings personalized please email me for pricing at info@lilyslaundryboutique.com

I used rolled paper as a the table cloth.
 You can get at any art and craft store.  
 I got mine at Pottery Barn Kids. 
Markers, beads, string and glue were all placed on the table so they could create before or after eating.

These cones are easy to make.  You can fill them with anything.  
Cut them out from the template and glue the side without “Happy Thanksgiving” on it and attach to back of “Happy Thanksgiving” side. All done 😉

What are Printables?

I get  this all of the time so I thought I would give a little explanation/tutorial.
Printables are basically a great inexpensive way to dress up any event you are throwing.  You pick a theme and either you have someone design a printable party package (like Lily’s Laundry)
or you buy a set of printables that match your “theme.”
You then print them out and assemble yourself.
For our Easter Egg Hunt I created a cupcake toppers, cupcake wrappers, party cones, and party circles all in the same colors to bring unity to the parties decor.
What you need…
Glue (Rubber Cement)
Glue Gun
Ribbon/Twine/Raffia
Glitter/Stickers/Crystal Embellishments
Card Stock Paper to Print your Printables on
Colored Cardstock to accent Cupcake Toppers and Party Circles
Craft Punches or Scissors
Cookie Sticks/Paper Straws
Hole Punch
All this stuff you can find at Target, Joann’s Fabrics, Michaels or your local scrapbooking store.
Start by printing your “Printables” to cardstock paper on your home computer and
cut them out with your Craft Punches.
Embellish them with your crystals, stickers, glitter.  However you think looks best.
Printables on cardstock.
Hot Glue Gun. Paper Straws.
Don’t forget your embellishments!
Craft Punchs come in all sorts of sizes and shapes.  
You can cut out by hand but it will be much more time
consuming and the craftsmanship will not be the same.
Books of colored cardstock to back your printables.

For the party circles I use rubber cement to back the printable with colored card stock. I hole punch them & slip through ribbon. Now you can tie them on anything…Mason Jars, Vases, Apothecary Jars, Gift Bags and more!



For cupcake toppers you can use cookie sticks or paper straws.  Glue both sides of the straw and attach your printable to one side. To the other side add  your “decorative” card stock.  Then tie a bow around the paper straw for a little something extra.  

Tie on your party circle, insert your cones and add your cupcake toppers into your cupcake stand!  Bingo!  Beautiful Party!
