Fall decor and more!

Wow! November has just flown by. It seems that the last 2 weeks of being sick here at our house (either me, Ryan, or the kids) has stopped us from participating in some Thanksgiving traditions that we started last year. I've seen some super amazing ideas out there this year, but I never got around to any of them! How sad! And now with Christmas fast approaching, I'm feeling rushed to move onto the next holiday. However, I do have a few {simple} plans for some special Thanksgiving activities this week, so I'll share those hopefully later on. Although it may be after the holiday.

I figured it's still considered the Fall season...for at least another week, so what better time than TODAY to share with you my Fall decor for 2009. (Although I do know many who have already started decorating for Christmas, but I won't mention any names! *wink*)

Last year, we had the pleasure of hosting Thanksgiving at our house! This year we get to give that pleasure to someone else and are traveling to Ryan's parents for Thanskgiving Day. I had a lot of fun with the decorating portion of last year's hosting experience. The food part? Let's just say I'm glad it was a joint effort between 3 families. Our turkey turned out great, but the mashed potatoes? Don't even ask...

Because I never got to share the Thanksgiving table from last year, I thought it would be appropriate to share for any of you getting ready to host your own Thanksgiving this year! I especially like to keep things simple and last year's table wasn't any different.

These were the place settings at each guest's seat.
I did happen to blog about these if you'd like to take a look!

On Sunday, I held a 4 for $10 Christmas gift giving event.
It was a small group of stampers, but we had lots of fun!

each of the projects we made below.

Your fall decorations are too cute! I'm glad to still see some fall stuff...everybody seems to be skipping right over Thanksgiving and moving on to Christmas! I still have all my pumpkins and fall leaves out too!

I love your fall decor.
To tell the truth we are having a short week of school this week and since we aren't hosting any of the Thanksgiving events I am planning on taking down all my fall decor and start putting up the Christmas decor. We will see how much we get done.
Have a great day!

What a beautiful table Heidi! I love those place cards - so pretty! I am still trying to figure out all of my Thanksgiving stuff. I am devoting tomorrow to getting everything together. I hope I can get it all done!

Happy Thanksgiving!
