This time last year my grandparents from Greece were here visiting us for the month! It was the first time in many years that we would be celebrating Thanksgiving together, and also our first Thanksgiving in our new home! I wanted to come up with something that I could keep as a keepsake for the special Holiday we were celebrating together!
It’s really quite simple, I bought blank gift tags from Michaels, wrote each persons name on them and used them as their place settings. I asked each person before dinner to write what they were thankful for! When it came time to put the Fall decor away, I packed those little memoirs away with it.
When I pulled out the Fall decor this season, it was so fun reading them and very special to “feel” the presence of my grandparents from Greece here with me even though they are thousands of miles away this year. I added the tags to part of my decor by simply adding them to the ends of branches, and creating a “tree”. This is a beautiful, memorable tree that I look forward to growing each year!
November, the month people start looking at the good in their lives and everything they are thankful for! I’m already in full swing of preparing ideas for a few new sides dishes this Thanksgiving! We will be hosting a dinner for family at our home and I’m looking forward to start prepping for my setup! When do you begin preparing your tablescape and choosing your side dishes?
Today I’m happy to share with you a Thanksgiving printable perfect to display framed on your buffet or in the kitchen!

I can’t wait to share a special “giving” tree with you next week, so stayed tuned!
