Food

Wrap the Turkey in bacon for not only amazing flavor (Who doesn't LOVE Bacon ?) but the bacon constantly bastes the turkey as it cooks.

Pumpkins

Light Up Burlap Pumpkin

Burlap Light Up Pumpkin
T
his was a Dollar Tree find.
Originally is was a somewhat tacky light up foam pumpkin covered in orange glitter. I painted it with a burlap colored paint so the orange would not show through AND it sealed the glitter so it wasn't EVERYWHERE. Then I simply glued burlap to it and added some twine, green burlap leaves and floral tape covered wire.

Yarn Pumpkins

Not all my crafts turn out exactly how I want them to. I tried the pool noodle technique with yarn it was a FLOP. The yarn was not stiff enough to hold up.

I used apiece of black felt to not only finish off the bottom but it helped to secure the yarn the glue did not hold.

How I fixed it

For this one I just sewed a running stitch around a circular piece of fabric. Placed polyfill on top of it,  pulled it tight and tied it off.

These were made with a styrofoam ball and pieces of fabric.

Games and Activities

Rather then have everyone go around the table and tell WHAT they are thankful for, let EVERYONE feel loved and appreciated.

I am Thankful…for YOU ! - Have each person at the table tell something that they think is great about each of the others. If you have a really large group, have them just say something great about the person on their left.

Preserve the Memories
This one goes on throughout the party.
These days everyone has a cell phone with a camera. Give everyone a list of things/people to take pictures of. Examples: Someone eating, someone laughing, the dog, someone playing a game, someone watching TV, their favorite dish, their plate. At the end of the party download all the pics and give all who participated a small token. Make a disc of ALL the pics and give them out at Christmas.

Thankful Tree

Thankful Tree

Print out the PDF File on fall colored stock paper and cut out. Everyday have everyone write on them what they are thankful for or give everyone their own color and have them make several.
