The Perfect Thanksgiving Kid’s Table Decorations

By  | 

I have a theory.

Boys love Thanksgiving parties because boys love to eat!

Oh, I’’m sure they are thankful, too… — for all of those delicious food ideas!

Today I’’m thankful for Paula, of Frog Prince Paperie. Her masterful arrangement of these charming Thanksgiving theme decorations and favor busy-boxes are sure to be a hit with kids and adults.

Elements on the dessert table are mirrored on the guest table; warm autumnal colors are coordinated throughout the room to create a most welcoming party.

The dessert table brown and white polka dot backdrop is simply a canvas wrapped with fabric, but doesn’t it look terrific with the festive “Give Thanks” banner?

Even if you don’’t sew, you can make a colorful table runner with iron-on tape.

A plump, fabric turkey is sure to garner grins, but all attention will certainly be on the yummy desserts offered on colorful pedestals.

Orange, yellow, brown and red are repeated around the room.

I love how cozy it all looks!

There is burlap and satin; rich wood and linen; colored mason jars with fresh flowers are joined by fabric cousins throughout.

The entire effect is quite charming…kind of like dressing your son up in a sport coat…with jeans.

One of the first things I notice about this room is the way Paula tied orange fabric around the chair backs.

I love the zing the simple fabric flower coils add.

Polka dot plates contrast nicely with orange cloth napkins, which are wrapped in brown burlap and orange satin ribbon for texture contrast, too.

Including the “Thankful for our Blessings” decal is a thoughtful touch. Table service sleeves add another decorating opportunity.

Place cards make young guests’ feel important.

Don’’t the glasses look cute with their ribbon ties and fabric flowers?

I like how the favor canisters are fancied up with fabric strips, ribbon, rickrack and the “We Are So Thankful” decal. These clever busy boxes for after dinner contain crayons, Playdough and a turkey craft.

Busy kids are happy kids and it gives moms and dads more time for conversation, too! This entire party has a warm glow about it. A gathering like this might just give your guests one more thing to be thankful for!
