Hope you are having a nice, happy Friday! I can't thank God enough for the weekend being here already. Trust me, I need it.
Anyway today is ISS Blog Hop Friday and our theme of the month is Setting the Table. I've created a project (if that's what you want to call it) for this special occasion. We are releasing 2 new fall images...Pilgrims in fact today...so check them out, they are on sale now!!!
I combined 2 projects into one. I created a Thanksgiving day table full of all the yummy trimmings.
I decided to use our Chicken/Turkey with potato's, casserole (which I turned into mac n cheese), a side dish and some scrumptious looking bread! I had the dardest time trying to scale this table down but that was as small as I could it. LOL...Oy Vey! You can't really make out the sentiment at the bottom of the table but it says You are cordially invited to a Thanksgiving Feast!
The second items I created to finish out the "theme" were these cute little table toppers. Our family has a tradition that we do each year. Everyone writes down a thought or prayer (and I mean everyone even the kids) and we place them in a basket. About 20 minutes before we begin to eat we sit down and each person pulls one out and reads it.
We began doing this after a family member passed away a few years ago. It has really brought our family closer together.
So I created little boxes this year that will hold our thoughts and prayers. I will just remove the flowers and fill them with our little slips of paper that everyone will write on. I also add a few scriptures too.
Totally makes our Thanksgiving a time to truly giving thanks. Not just for the food, but for those we love and care about as well. You should try it.
My family likes it because sometimes they don't know what to say and this way they can just read off the slip and then add to it if they want.
