Today’s Easy Thanksgiving place setting tutorial is brought to us by our contributor Blanca from Creativities Galore. A decorated table will help the kids feel special within the celebration and lets face it …. we all love a fancy table setting!
Happy November. I am Blanca and today I am sharing a kids Thanksgiving place setting. This place setting will make your little guest feel like one of the grown ups.
This place setting has all the basic things a typical place setting has but with a twist. Instead of using a regular cup I used a small glass milk bottle and I added an orange striped straw that had a THANKFUL label on it.
For the cutlery I placed a spoon and fork inside a small canvas drawstring bag and put that inside a small wooden crate.
I added ivory and gold crinkled paper shreds to the crate to add some height, then for the name card I used a small grapevine wreath. Tapped to the wreath I added a paper name card with the little guests name.
I decided to use these blue and white polka dot plates as they really added a pop of color to the table. I then laced a neutral colored napkin on top of it and they worked beautifully together.
This table setting is very easy to put together and the kids will love it, plus they will feel included because they will have their own place setting just like the adults do at the adult table.
To compliment the place setting, a colorful Fall leaf garland would look beautiful hung around the table and again it is really quick and easy to put together.
