The Thanksgiving kids’ table idea has been gaining popularity this season. Gather your supplies for decorations that enhance the holiday theme and have fun creating a welcoming environment for guests of all ages! Stefanie, of Anna and Blue Paperie, offers some lovely options for table décor and party favors.
This table is cozily set in front of the fireplace with a mantel that sports a “Happy Thanksgiving” swag. A central tray holds a fall arrangement of artificial pumpkins.
It’s flanked by candy filled, mini cornucopias that are cleverly made by using ice cream cones!
The table features a cloth runner, but paper placemats are used to boost color and protect the table. This is a practical solution for those who want the decorations to be holiday special, but recognize the reality of potential kid messiness.
The table is set with paper plates, but gooey desserts are wisely served in glassware. Each little guest finds a name tag to welcome them to their place. These are not identical, but they are coordinated in autumn colors.
A plastic cup holds crayons for marking the menu choice card. It has easily been made party ready with google eyes and a paper beak and wattle. Perhaps you might want to provide Thanksgiving coloring sheets, too, to keep sated young guests contentedly sitting while you linger over coffee.
Stefanie offers some beautiful patterns on her Thanksgiving printables. She includes a fill-in-the-blank tag that says “I am thankful for…” which could be used as conversation starters for kids and adults. There is a choice of medallions for favors and surplus send homes. These grace notes can add some great finishing touches for your Thanksgiving gathering!
