Thanksgiving means so many things to us at Candles and Favors. But most importantly it means to “Give Thanks” to you, our loyal customers. As we reflect our 9th anniversary, we are thankful for all the success our company as had through the years. Without you, this would not be possible.
We created our “Give Thanks” free printable set for you. Planning a Thanksgiving Party can be overwhelming. However, planning a fabulous Thanksgiving Party and incorporating our “Give Thanks” ideas, you will create a party that everyone will talk about for years to come.
So let’s get this party started, shall we?
We decided to have an intimate party before Thanksgiving. Just a get together with some friends. This banner was so easy to put together. All you need is a pair of scissors, burnt orange burlap and burlap string. We hot glued the pennant on to a square burlap. Then we applied glue to the back of the burlap and overlapped it on the string. What a difference it made our sitting area.
I am Thankful for……is our note card we feature in this set. I don’t know about you, we are thankful for so many things in our lives, we might need two cards. Guess what, you can print and cut as many as you need.
We took the Give Thanks note card and taped it onto a wine bottle. We wrote Family, Friends and Good Wine on our note card. Beautiful way to add color to our centerpiece.
The Centerpiece, isn’t it beautiful. Our talented stylist, PJ arranged it for us. Store bought flowers in a glass apothecary jar with pumpkins at the base is just stunning. We finished it off with our round tag and burlap string. The basket is filled with pinecones, pumpkins, the flowers and of course the wine.
The table is set, the place cards are filled out, now all we need is the guests to arrive. Each table setting has the place card on top of the china and the note card on the side. Since we brought the party outside, lighting the fire pit seemed appropriate.
We created a cozy area for conversation. Your choice of water or cognac. We placed our food cards near the beverage of choice and scattered the confetti on the table for color. We also decorated the table with our indoor decor. No need to buy anything special, you would be surprised by what you already have that could work.
Up close shot of the water bottle bands. Since you print and cut yourself you can purchase any type of bottle and wrap around it. Doesn’t necessarily have to be water. It can be glass bottled soda, beer or sparkling water.
The cognac in our finest Waterford Crystal is sitting on top of our checkerboard set. Scattered confetti on our table runner completes the look we were going after.
Wrapping burlap around a candle is a great way to tie in the color scheme your going after. We glued our square tag to finish off the centerpiece.
This wine barrel makes a perfect place for keeping our beer on ice…Burlap covers a plain bucket so we placed the ice and beer on top. We used some of our wraps on the bottles and the others we used our orange burlap with a round tag.
Here is another shot of the beer. Three different looks using our “Give Thanks” set. Which one are you going to choose to do?
Left over tags were hole punched and wrapped around the barrel with burlap string. As you can see the set of round and square tags can be used in an array of ways. You can use them as cupcake toppers by gluing them to toothpicks. They can be hole punched and hung around many different items at your table. Or they can simple just lean up against a container. The possibilities are endless.
Candles and Favors mascot, the Golden Retriever Dog named Star is patiently waiting for the food to be served.
