THANKSGIVING TABLSCAPE JUST FOR KIDS


The kiddie table-the name evokes images of card tables and folding chairs, a temporary way station for kids before they're old enough to graduate to the "big table". Not anymore. You can create a fun and festive table in no time with traditional decorative elements and fun crafts--a stylish destination that might even evoke a longing glance or two from guests at the "big table."
Start the meal with a Mayflower mocktail, a yummy blend of cranberry and grape juice topped with lemon-lime soda. 
Place a whimsical Pilgram Hat filled with crudite or popcorn at each place setting for muching before the turkey arrives. 
The faux wood placemats are a stylish alternative to a tablecloth and kids can busy themselves coloring it. 
Rustic colored pencils add to the Thanksgiving theme
Add a plate of nutterbutter cupcakes dressed as Tom the turkey for dessert and you have a party!

Dear HH,

Send me back to your "kids Table" It's been a while since I have sat with the cousins and it was never like you illustrated. I'd be glad to be back.

This totally would make me want to sit at the kids table! Sooo cute, and what a fun way to make their table seem like "the place to be". Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

That is too too cute!! I love it. I can't wait for the girls to be a little older so we can have them do this. xoxo

What fun!!! This made me want to invite a bunch of children to my Thanksgiving dinner just so I can try all your great ideas (my "kids" are 23,22 and 19!)

Happy Thanksgiving!!
