Thanksgiving is quickly approaching (well in Canada at least!), and there are tons of Fall decor items to use when styling your Thanksgiving table.
Our favourites this year are the metallics, the plaids, and of course the white pumpkins!
This plaid backdrop is from one of our favourites Target, and it is wrapping paper. Nine times out of ten I use wrapping paper as tablecloths for all my parties. It is inexpensive (this one is 4 bucks!), and you can get something that matches your theme and you aren't tied to it and feeling guilty that you bought a tablecloth for one event and never used it again.
At the Vancouver Social Sessions put on by Interior Design Show West & Poppytalk, Stacey & I got some free tester chalk paints in our SWAG bags from the FAT Paint company. The colour was perfect for Fall so so I couldn't resist painting up a few mason jars to go with the decor. Well, this may have started my addiction to chalk paint - it goes on smoothly dries fast and has an awesome matte texture. Before I knew I had these done, a kids chair and another mason jar for my son's birthday party. After it dries you can quickly sand the sides to give it more of a distressed look. The colour that I was used was called "Pumpkin".
Lastly, we thought we would add a fun touch this year and we designed some cute printable colouring sheets to put at each table setting. My daughter loves colouring and so this was inspired by her. It is too formal for us to do place cards so we though how about something like this instead. I love an item too when they can be conversation starters as well. The first page asks everyone to note what they are thankful for...something we should definitely be talking about around the dinner table!
Here's a FREE Elle o Elle printable in case you wanted to do the same as us! Super easy, just print these out cut them into 4 and then make small books for each place setting. I used a paper clip to keep them together but you could make them into books or just keep them loose.
What do you have planned for your Thanksgiving decor?
Thanks and HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We are thankful for YOU and for taking the time to stop by Elle o Elle!
