Thanksgiving Table Decorations

Happy Tuesday!  For my Creative Critterz Imaginations design team post we are asked to make Thanksgiving table decorations.  I decided to do a table setting.  What I ended up doing is REALLY simple.  I used Create a Critter for the leaves and the Heirloom Imagine cartridge for the patterns.  This year there are only 4 of us that will be at Thanksgiving dinner so I wanted to do something a little special.

Here is what the setting looks like:

For some reason the middle leaf is coming off orange in the pictures.  It's actually more of a maroon color in real life.  :)

Here is a look down at the plate.  The brown and green leaf is cut at 7", the maroon one is cut at 5.5".  I cut a band w/ the maroon paper and put it around my silverware and then wrapped some linen thread around that w/ a green leaf cut at 1.5" to hang from it.

This name plate is cut at 4" x 3" and scored at 1.5".  The brown leaf is cut at 1.5" and the maroon one cut at 1.1".

I wanted to do something that decorated the cup so I wrapped the linen thread around it and hung a brown and maroon leaf from it.  The brown leaf is cut at 2.5" and the maroon one is cut at 2".  To keep the thread in place I placed a glue dot on the cup first then wrapped the thread around it.  The glue dot should come off easily.

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember I will be having a giveaway that I will be doing later this week on my blog.  Be sure to stop by.

I stumbled across your blog tonight, and I have to say that I love these table decorations. I am the designer that created the Heirloom patterns and I love how used them in your place setting. Would you mind if I shared this project on my blog?

Great to know about these table decorations. Last month, I arranged my sister’s wedding reception at one of beautiful NYC venues and decorated table with beautiful table centrepieces. We really had an amazing time there.
