Thanksgiving Kids table

After creating the adult table here, I created a simple and easy table with the new product line from Waverly & Hefty.  I had in mind a table for elementary age kids.  Using stylish paper products for big gatherings is a great idea and the Waverly Tableware line is versatile enough to go from Thanksgiving to Christmas.








There’s that manzanita branch AGAIN!  This time I hung small ribbons with acorns, from the limbs.  On the table a base of craft paper makes for easy clean up after the meal, and provides a canvas for drawing, writing, and games beforehand. 
For name placement I found cheesy crackers with letters on them and spelled out each persons name.  I also filled a tall vase with indian corn and let the kids guess how many are inside.

  26. Those plates are so pretty and they look so nice against the butcher paper, which is such a cute idea too.

    My In-laws usually host Thanksgiving but my Father-in-law had emergency open heart surgery last week and so now I get to take over.

  27. We are headed to my sisters. Can't wait to get the gang together! Always fun, festive, and loud!
