Decorations For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving will be here soon and my thoughts are on the huge turkey in my freezer and how much fun we are going to have with our guests.
I've started on my centerpiece for the dining room table. I bought these 3 brass candle holders at a thrift store for $4.00.  I cleaned them with Brasso and I think they look pretty good.  Before Thanksgiving, I'm sure I will add something else to the centerpiece.
 We had friends over the other night and I just had to light my candles even though they are for Thanksgiving Day.  Back to Dollar Tree to find more drip less candles.
 We will be playing a Holiday Trivia game I found online.   It is like the game show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" and  "Family Feud".  The game lets you call family members or friends when you get stumped on an answer.  How neat will it be to call people who couldn't make it to the dinner?
 It will be a great  way to get us into the holiday spirit and include others in our celebration.

 I love this idea found at Balancing Home.
I will be making this for our guests.  It would be fun to see if we can guess who wrote what they are most grateful for.
Or maybe the kids would like to make these cute pine cone turkeys.

  Make feathers from construction paper and have them to write what they are thankful for on each feather.
Here is an idea for that Halloween pumpkin before it finally expires.
 Use it for cold drinks for the kids.  They will love getting juice boxes and other drinks from this carved out pumpkin.
 It can also be used for extra ice for your guests.
I love these turkeys from Our Best Bites.  They would be so cute sitting on the table and other places around the kitchen and dining room.  They are simple to make with Oreo cookies, mini Reese cups, Malt balls, candy corn, and frosting.  Go to the above link for instructions.
