Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I hope everyone is sitting, full and happy, with tons of friends and family, reminiscing, making new memories.
I thought I would make a little collage of what Thanksgiving would look like if I was in charge. I’m not saying I would want to be in my family (we have a rumored forty people coming this year), but if I had a small friends gathering, or something.
Instead of traditional turkey, I would make a bunch of those amazing cranberry gouda grilled cheeses. They look so amazing.
I am also big on making sure the kids are entertained. I saw that amazing idea of fabric crayons on Chez Beeper Bebe and thought what a great activity it would be to keep kids occupied. I could provide a bunch of shirts for them to transfer the drawings on, or provide instructions of how their parents can iron them on when they get home!
Also, a DIY photobooth is a great way to keep everyone entertained. You can go fancy and build a mock wall, complete with frame and wallpaper, or just throw a sheet onto a clothesline and let er rip!
