Thanksgiving Kids Table

Last year I hosted Thanksgiving at my house for the first time. I didn't have enough room to put the kids at the grown-up table, and I wanted them to still feel special, and I made their table extra colorful and festive!

I used place mats I already had, and just cut a square of orange burlap to punch up the color, and go under the salad plate.

I used the same turkey napkin holders as I had on the adult table, but made kiddish napkins for them to use. I also made the tablecloth. I got all the fabric at Hobby Lobby, as well as the pumpkins on each plate, and the centerpiece.

The kids loved it, and I think they felt special!

This is what I plan to do this year for the centerpiece... I got the idea from One Charming Party. She has great ideas. You should pay her blog a visit!

These darling corn cobs are so fun, and unexpected! I can't wait to get together with my crafty girlfriends and make them!

I plan to use the same linens and dishes this year as I did last year, but I want to make the darling turkey for the center piece, and corn for each child.

What are you doing for your Thanksgiving Kids Table?

Very pretty table! Funny, I just bought orange burlap too! As I was checking out, I was thinking, "Who buys orange burlap?" Guess I'm not the only one.
