This morning I thought I would share our Thanksgiving Table with you.
We made a Thankful Tree again this year. It is a super simple project to make.
All you need are some braches from the yard, I spray painted mine white.
Cut some simple leaf shapes from scrapbook paper, gather twine to hang them with and markers to write on them and you are set.
I put my braches into floral foam and covered it with moss but it work in a vase like I did last year just as well.
We each write what we are thankful for everyday on a leaf and then hang the leaves on the tree. I can not wait to see the tree full on
I save the leaves from year to year so we can look back on them and see what was on our hearts in the years before.
Our tablecloth this year is one I started working on Thanksgiving Day last year. I had each person at Thanksgiving dinner sign the tablecloth and then I hand embroidered over each name, you can see where I got my idea here. For the to smallest kids we traced around their hands. Imagine my shock when I opened my Country Living Magazine this month to find a story of a mother who had done this for years. I can’t wait to see mine all full of names and years of love and memories of time spent together with family and friends. My heart aches and my eyes are full of tears just thinking of this. One day this will be a gift for generations of family to come that I am intentionally making today. My hope is that they will see it as a legacy of love and thankfulness and be proud to be apart of this family God has placed them in.
This corner is a beautiful start.
So do you do anything special with your Thanksgiving Table?
