five things friday: thanksgiving inspiration edition

It's Friday again already?! I haven't been getting a ton of crafting done lately, but now I've got a whole new topic to focus on: Thanksgiving. I'm having it at my house for the first time, as my husband's parents and his sister/her husband will be joining us here, and so I've spent all week pinning inspirations for my table...

1. I love natural elements for fall-related decorating. How great would these acorn napkin rings be for Thanksgiving?

2. Place cards, no matter how simple, just say "fancy dinner" to me. Here is a genius use of magnolia leaves (to match my wreath made from all those pesky leaves that end up on my driveway from my neighbor's tree!).

3. Centerpieces and flower arranging aren't exactly my strong suit... pumpkins and candles are a pretty substitute though!

4. I love kraft paper, and it's the perfect color for this holiday - also an inexpensive way to work with the linens/plates I already have for a simple Thanksgiving table.

5. I'm not a super fan of pumpkin pike (or stuffing or mashed potatoes - Thanksgiving sacrilege, I know), but this triple chocolate pumpkin pie would probably tempt me...


  1. There is a such thing as chocolate pumpkin pie? really is worth living.

  2. I also love the idea of a chocolate pumpkin pie! How delicious. You found some great pinspiration!

    I am hosting my weekly Pinterest linky party at the moment and I would be so honoured if you could link up this pinteresting post!

    Best wishes and happy Pinning,

  3. Love your finds, especially the kraft paper table running! I'm hosting Thanksgiving at my house for the first time this year too...and getting a little nervous about it! I'm collecting my recipes this weekend and trying to stay ahead of the game with it all. Hope yours goes well and you enjoy the time with family! XO, Katie
