It’s almost time for Yanksgiving! *ahem*. Sorry. Thanksgiving. We’ll be hosting our 4th annual ‘yanksgiving
‘ next week and I couldn’t be more excited. I can’t imagine how excited all you american friends are! Then again, I probably love thanksgiving more than the average person…
And I’m loving the thanksgiving printables. Anything to add a little personality to the dinner party! And don’t forget, there’s also these printable napkin designs
Have a great weekend everyone!
If you’re from the U.S., you’re probably thinking this post is preposterously early. But if you’re a canuck like me, you know that Thanksgiving is only two weekends away. Eek!
I like to find different ways to make holiday decorations unique. The easiest way to do that is with a free printable. In this case, I’ve made a printable for you to jazz up your napkins. Each napkin has a laurel wreath in four different very autumnal colours, surrounding the words “give thanks”. Very thanksgiving appropriate me thinks!
Here’s what you need and how to do it.
1 Iron the napkins flat.
2 Download and print the pdf. Cut each section out.
3 Place a design face down on your napkin and iron on according to your transfer sheet instructions.
4 Repeat, allow to cool and set the table!
This year we’ll be spending thanksgiving with our family on the beautiful sunshine coast. I can’t wait!
What are your thanksgiving plans?
For a bit more Thanksgiving inspiration:
From The Thanksgiving Archives
A couple years ago I got a notepad with a grocery checklist. I use it regularly. Like, all the time. So much so that I’m down to my last few pages and am starting to feel a bit at a loss. So what did I decide to do? Make my own and share it with you!
I find this checklist particularly useful if I’m shopping for a recipe, or if there are several specific items I need to fill up the pantry and fridge. I don’t know about you, but if I go into a grocery store with more than 5 items on my mental list, I’m bound to forget a few. I never forget anything if I bring my paper checklist – I almost always forget if I rely on my memory. ….kind sad isn’t it?
It’s not as flushed out as my original version, but it’s organized in a way I prefer and includes items I purchase more regularly. Of course you and I don’t always buy the same things, so there’s a space for you to add additional items under each section, and a few more in case it doesn’t belong anywhere.
I hope this makes your grocery shopping trips a little easier like it has for me!
Are you like me and need a shopping list? Or do you have a superpower-worthy memory?
