This past week I stumbled upon a fabulous decor blog focused on family. It was an image posted on Pinterest that drew me to Design Mom, but the touching story about the Coleman family home that had me hooked. You’ll have to visit the Design Mom blog too.

Inspired by the pair of  bedrooms in the Coleman home that would be fitting for a boy or girl, I created a gender neutral toddler bedroom. Here’s the result:

Handmade Christmas Gifts for Kids to Make

DIY snow globe with vintage feel

While I was getting crafty and decorating glass globe ornaments, one of my little ones asked if she could help. Because the glass ornaments were too fragile (one had already broke – should have picked up the plastic globe ornaments in retrospect!) and I sadly declined her offer. It made me think of holiday crafts that would be great for the little ones and would make fabulous gifts as well. I’m sharing five of my fave handmade Christmas gifts for kids  at Wayfair!

Thanksgiving Kids Table Ideas

Celebrating Thanksgiving with children is the best, but may lead to some challenges. Do you include them at the “adult” table with the fine china, silverware and crystal? Or will your littlest guests have their own designated table? It might all depend on how many kids will be there, how big your main table is and if you think the kids are ready for your finest dishes.

As for me, I prefer to have the kids to sit at the adult table – in the hopes they will learn from their parents, relatives and friends how to behave in a more formal setting. However, when I was growing up I sat at the “kids” table for years – in fact it became the “teen” table at one point!

If you are planning on having a kids’ table this Thanksgiving, it always fun to decorate in a special way. Age appropriate activities, shatter proof glasses and personal touches are just some things to think about when setting the table for your youngest guests. Here are some ideas for decorating a fun Thanksgiving kids’ table and keeping them busy!

Thanksgiving kids table - thank you note idea

I especially like this idea of a personalized turkey mailbox on the back of each child’s chair. A fun way to get kids and family members to write notes of thanks.

Happy decorating,
