Thanksgiving is right around the corner and whether you’re gathering with friends or family (or both!), you’re sure to sit down to some yummy food and great company. It’s easy to think of Thanksgiving as the holiday all about food, but we think it’s just as important to remember the true reason for this holiday, which is to be grateful for all that we have! There are many ways to bring the meaning into the day, and to remind everyone there what it’s really about, but we think one of the best ways is through the décor and activities we do. So, we decided to put together some fun ideas for your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving décor!
We have two versions of this “Give Thanks” sign for you to print out and hang up near your table, reminding everyone in attendance to ponder their blessings, along with cut-out cards for all the guests to write down what they’re thankful for! Stick them in a jar by the food and at the end of the meal, encourage your friends or family to share!
If you’re lucky enough to host Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving this year, here’s our checklist of the things you’ll need!
• Plates, silverware, glasses, and napkins
• Serving bowls, plates, and utensils
• Enough chairs and a big enough table(s)
• Space in your fridge
• Toilet paper and hand soap
• Containers for leftovers
• Cooler for drinks
• Speakers and a great playlist
• Ice for drinks and the cooler
• Meat thermometer and roasting pan
• Décor, photo booth, games, and whatever else you like!
Don’t forget Thank You cards to send out after you successfully host your holiday get together!
