This year Thanksgiving has special meaning for me. During Thanksgiving last year, my mother was in a coma after a horrific accident left her with a broken neck. Her doctors fully believed she wouldn't survive the first 24 hours-they were wrong. My mom has incredible strength and has survived cancer, a broken neck and a month long coma. Thankfully,she is spending this Thanksgiving with her family and taking on her traditional role of chief pie baker and mashed potato maker.
As I prepare to host my family for Thanksgiving, I would like to share a few photos and a project. This year I decided to make some simple paper cones to fill with goodies for my two youngest nieces. The poor girls are surrounded by teenagers and need special treats to help them cope with 17 adults and 6 teenagers.
Use a hot glue gun or double sided tape to seal the edges.
I cut out my nieces' first initials and painted them gold.
Punch holes on both sided of the cone.
String ribbon through the holes.
Fill with goodies and hang it on the back of a chair or from a doorknob (or anywhere you like).
NAPKINS & PLACE CARDS
I am in the process of ironing napkins and getting place cards together.
This year I am doing the pocket fold. Rather than utensils, I am thinking about putting a little turkey in each pocket.
I like the simple style of this place card.
The little turkey can be printed as a place card as well. If I remember correctly, Martha Stewart offered these on her site a few years ago.
