FREE Thanksgiving Printables!

It's FREEBIE Time!
Amanda's Parties to Go has a brand new, super fun FREE Thanksgiving printable just for you! It's packed with colorful, vibrant designs and kid-friendly activities that will keep them entertained, too. The printable includes lots of goodies to help you decorate the kid’s table not just for thanksgiving but for any fall festivities. 

And even better, Cris McGrath from Crissy's Crafts has styled a fabulous Thanksgiving party to inspire us all today. I hope you love all of her creative ideas as much as I do.

About the party Cris says, "For our Give Thanks play date, I set up the kids table outdoors since the weather here in Phoenix is very mild during Fall. I purchased a few pumpkins to use as center pieces and embellished them using silk flowers, ribbons and painted polkadots.

Using the coordinated paper and turkey icons from the set, I made cute crayon holders using toilet paper roll that was placed beside each place setting along with an activity sheet from the printable set. I also used the coordinated paper as placemats, the larger turkey icons from the set were used to decorated the back of their chairs.

The dessert table was as colorful and fun as the kids table. Using fabric that coordinated with the printable, I created the backdrop by covering a piece of foam board and added the Happy Thanksgiving banner. An orange polkadot fabric was used as a tablecloth.

The kids enjoyed some yummy cake pops, sugar cookies, trail mix, cupcakes and turkey sandwiches. At the craft station, kids made turkey hats using the coordinated paper from the printable, painted wooden indian masks, made cute turkey decorations and colored the turkey printable also from the set.

Favors were displayed on an old kid's fence decorated with color coordinated paper bunting. The kids had so much fun. If you have good weather in late fall, staging this party outdoors might be a fun way to do a kids’ table at your Thanksgiving dinner. "

Halloween "Witch Is In" Party

What a fun surprise these party photos were for me! My talented friend, Cris McGrath of Crissy's Crafts, asked me to tweak a little of my Halloween Party Printables set for the "Witch Is In" party she was hosting for her children. I had no idea how cute the details would be! Cris was even featured on Amy Atlas' blog a few days ago with her adorable Halloween party ideas. Amy says....

"Cris used store bought goodies and gave them a wicked makeover for this small party for her kids. The little witches snacked on witch brew-shaped sandwiches and cheese stick pretzel broomsticks. How great are those olives coming out of the brew? Sweet treats on the dessert table included cotton candy brew, cauldron cake pops, Hershey Kiss witch hats, lollipop witch pops, chocolate toads, wicked witch lollipop rings, and mini Reese’s and pretzel brooms. Activities included Witch’s freeze dance, musical chair and bingo. Great job."

When Amy says "Great job" you know you have a winner of a party!
