Friday Find: Last Minute Thanksgiving Inspiration

Thanksgiving is only 6 days away! 
I’ve been seeing a lot of great sources for 
Thanksgiving inspiration out in the blogosphere,
so I thought I’d share some of those sources with you. 
Everything you see here is something you can do in the next couple of days for little cost.

Printables
I love printables. I love how they are a fantastic way to pull together the look of a party with little cost and not too significant amount of time. I’ve found a TON of fantastic printables available on-line. 
I’ve picked some of my favorites to share with you.

This modern collection is one of my favorite collections out there. 
Not only is it a fantastically fun design it also is for a good cause. 
This HWTM “Grateful Mod” collection is available for free download on the HWTM site. 
Please note that while this collection is free for download it was created to in honor of Operation Give Thanks with the overall goal of benefiting military families.

 Beautiful FREE printables featured on Catch My Party Blog and designed by Lindi of Love the Day. I just keep thinking about how gorgeous this set would look on the Thanksgiving table this year!

These adorable party circles are part of a FREE printable collection from the Smitten Blog. I think the little owls would look great on a kid’s table and the rest would give a mod edge to the adult table. 
Great Ideas
I’ve seen so many amazing tablescapes, dessert tables, kids tables and more while 
searching the web for Thanksgiving ideas. Here are a few of my favorite.

 I really liked the look of this modern Thanksgiving table by Enchanted Events & Design featured on Hostess with the Mostess. But, what I liked even more? The place cards! From the post, “The place cards are actually envelopes that I tied to the back of each of the chairs with a ribbon. I attached each person’s name to the envelope in a cutout to match the menus. These serve a dual purpose as a place card and also as a Thanksgiving activity: Each guest is given some blank cards (one for each of the other guests). They can then write a brief little note of thanks and love to each of the other guests and place it in the corresponding envelopes (like a Valentine). At the end of the meal each person gets an envelope full of wonderful notes from their friends and/or family.”

Entertain Exchange featured a fabulous Thanksgiving table created by Maria Cooke of the Ritzy Bee Blog – designed for Southern Living Magazine
The whole look of the table was crisp, clean and inviting. 
The “favors” were really fantastic though. Since everyone wants to take home something from the meal leftover boxes make a great favor. Tied with a ribbon and stamped with the same silverware motif that is featured in the party these boxes are sure to be a hit. 
Oh, and the little tag reads, “I’m thankful for leftovers.” LOVE IT!
