DIY Thanksgiving Buffet Table – Free Printables
The Thanksgiving table can get very crowded. What with the turkey, side dishes, gravy, and sauces, there's no place for anyone to actually sit down and eat! I solved this problem long ago by setting up a Thanksgiving Buffet Table for all the food and having an adult table as well as a kids' table.
Depending on the space you have and the number of guests you are expecting this could take some doing. You might consider setting up different stations or bars; appetizer, sides, desserts, and ...
Roasting the Perfect Thanksgiving Turkey
This time of year I get hungry for a juicy turkey dinner! It's no wonder, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. It's about the only time of year that I roast a whole turkey.
I still remember my first time roasting a turkey, I had no idea what to do. Over the years I've perfected it, and my family expects a Thanksgiving feast every year.
In recent years deep frying turkeys have been real popular. I've heard deep fried turkeys are delicious, but in our family you don't experiment ...
Decorate With Pumpkins for Thanksgiving
Who says pumpkins are just for Halloween? You can use pumpkins for Thanksgiving decor too!
Now that Halloween is over it's a good time to buy Halloween decor at discount prices. I grabbed a few foam craft pumpkins at Walmart for half price; scrounged up a few old cups in my kitchen cabinets, I used freebies we got from Bubba Gump, Spaghetti Factory, and Circus Circus; picked up metalic spray paint, ribbons, and dried foliage; and made centerpieces for my dining tables. It's a great and ...
DIY Thanksgiving Centerpieces
I recently saw some gorgeous Thanksgiving Centerpieces online selling for $100 or more. Most of them were made with mini pumpkins, dried leaves, nuts, berries, and other natural materials. I love dressing up my holiday tables with beautiful centerpieces, but there's no way I'm spending that much money on one. Specially not when I know I can make something similar for much less.
With Thanksgiving just 3 days away we're all busy preparing that holiday meal, but have you given any ...
Fall Decorating with Mason Jars
I collect bottles, jars, tins, and other interesting containers. My kitchen cabinets are filled with empty spaghetti sauce jars, wine bottles, and other stuff I insist I will someday do something creative with. The recent popularity of Mason jars are right up my alley.

Inexpensive Fall Mantel Decorations
I live in Hawaii and don't have a fireplace hence no mantel. When we lived in Texas the mantel was one of my favorite spots to decorate. But my daughters who live on the mainland have fireplaces with mantels that they decorate for each holiday. Here's the one my daughter Jenny made for her Georgia home.
She used the jars that she uses for her children's candy buffets when they have birthday parties. It's a great way to use those jars in between parties. She filled the ...
