Food, Favors and Decorations ~ Thanksgiving ~ Pink Saturday 11/26/11

Thanksgiving Day!
Over the river and through the woods to my brother's house we go...

Our family traditionally has pot-luck style holiday celebrations. Everyone brings a dish. My brother and his wife hosted Thanksgiving dinner again this year for 12 family members.  We took an apple pie, a pumpkin pie, potato filling, napkin rings, and cornucopia favors. Here are some photos of the pies, napkin rings and the cornucopias.

I used scrapbook designer papers to make the cornucopias. A few faux autumn leaves and a pheasant feather are hot glued to the top of each cone. I punched holes in the sides and added a jute cord hanger. They are filled with gold wrapped chocolates and pistachio nuts.
The napkin rings were made with craft paper. I inked the back of a real leaf and rubbed it onto the craft paper. I applied a coat of Mod Podge to the print. I cut out the shape, punched two holes in the center area of the leaf and added a ribbon to hold the napkin.
We spent the day feasting on delicious food, watching the parades on TV, having family fun, and thanking God for the abundance in our life.

I'm also tthankful for Beverly our Pink Saturday Hostess. Please click here to visit her and some other PS participants.
