My head has been down as I’ve been focusing on the One Room Challenge, so I’m a little behind the eight ball in terms of holiday planning! I can’t believe that in just a few days the holiday season will be in full swing and so will the family dinners and holiday parties. When attending one of these holiday soirees it’s always a good thing to bring a little something for the hostess. When considering hostess gifts, it’s best to give a gift that you would like to receive yourself. If you love it, they will too! Here’s a few of my favorite hostess gift ideas for the 2015 holidays – and I know you’ll find one your hostess will love!

Yesterday it snowed for the first time this season. It was quite magical! As the snow fell, I found myself thinking of Thanksgiving and daydreaming up a little tabletop idea. I’m loving the simplicity of a black & white palette, with fresh modern accents. It’s not fussy, but an elegant, classic look. Don’t you think?

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,
