$25 Starbucks Gift Card Giveaway in this post..keep reading!
Thanksgiving is just less than 2 weeks away and the buzz around the blogosphere is......Christmas cards. What? We haven't had Thanksgiving yet..please don't rush me! I'm making my own cards this year, as I have for the past several years. I have my idea ready, just need a day to have our photo shoot and I'll probably use Thanksgiving weekend to create them, upload them to Walmart's photo service and have them printed in one hour for pick up. So.... let's get back to Thanksgiving, shall we?
We have just two weeks left. Do you have your Thanksgiving planned out yet? Here are some things you may not have thought about, but don't get overwhelmed by all of these.
Table favors: Place cards, favors with candies, etc. I personally don't think these are a must, but sure are fun if you're entertaining guests. If it's just your immediate family, it might be fun for your family if you created them without them knowing as a surprise. OR you can order mini craft sets from Oriental Trading Company and let your children make them as their contribution. (While you're there you may want to go ahead and order for Christmas and save on shipping)
Dishes: Don't be shy about making Thanksgiving easy. I have used Chinette paper plates and napkins before. What a relief it was! Less dishes to worry about after your feast.
Centerpiece: You can create a simple centerpiece with leaves and acorns from your own neighborhood. I recommend you do this the day before so the leaves stay somewhat fresh for Thanksgiving Day. Add a simple scented candle for ambiance.
Sale Ads: Most supermarket sale ads come out on Wednesdays and you can view them online if you're mail comes later in the afternoon. Once you find a price you like, head over to some Frugal Mom blogs to see if they have coupons for any of those items. Double check all expiration dates.
I'll be sharing more as the countdown continues, but in the mean time, how about a giveaway?
