Kids Thanksgiving Table

We had a wonderful time last Thanksgiving with our friends from Chicago visiting and staying over. The kids had their own table set-up and we the mom's served as their servers!

Placemat from

I printed our these placemats for some kiddie fun. Found them on pinterest and the link for the placemets is here.  I only had it enlarged at the copier center.

Ready for the little ones

I set-up the table in our eat-in kitchen. Used my "unbreakable" corelle plates and added crayons on each side so they can play with their mats. I used Blue dots napkins from Ikea as an accent. I also added my old wicker table cover from Walmart.

I used mini-wine glasses I bought at our local goodwill for 50 cents each! The kids loved them so much that one of the kids asked if he could have one and take it home! I gladly obliged!

I added their hand-written place cards so everyone would know where to go. 

The Menu consisted of : Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Spaghetti, Pumpkin pie and Cream puffs, Chocolate cookies, and of course, turkey with gravy!!!

The centerpiece was also an idea I got from Pinterest, and here is the Link on how to make it! I only substituted the melon in the guide for pumpkin - just thinkin' that pumpkin' is more into this season than anything (plus, I had lots of those on display outside!)! My friends helped me make this lovely bird...

We really had a hard time trying to keep the kids hands away before dinner started! :)

Kids busy with coloring or  filling their plates!

So cute!

Hope your Thanksgiving was marvelous!!!!!!
