20 creative thanksgiving place card ideas

i am getting excited for thanksgiving. i love to gather with friends and family, and enjoy the time spent around the festive table eating delicious food. to be honest, i get more excited about the preparing the table more than the food. i attempted to make thanksgiving dinner once, and it didn't turn out well. it was a total flop. so for my family thanksgiving i contribute a pre-made pie, not made by me, and the table settings. i am perfectly fine with that. i have been gathering ideas for the table setting and place cards. i thought i would share 20 creative thanksgiving place cards ideas. 

i am thinking of taking different ideas from several and creating my own. what are you creating/using for your thanksgiving place cards?

letters to santa

tis the season! it is hard to believe that it is here once again. ideas, lists, and preparations for the holidays have begun. along with the excitement of kids getting ready to send their letters to santa.

i created a simple, bright printable to help your kiddos write and send a letter to santa.

and if they're lucky, they might even get a reply from santa letting them know if they're on the naughty or nice list. just incase some changes need to be made before christmas.

download and print letters to santa printable, includes both letter to and letter from santa, and send those letters into santa early. santa needs plenty of time to study the list. right?

also, i am sharing a christmas printable on the mother's niche blog today. such a fun gingerbread house shape activity to create together with your child. i love for you to check it out!
