I was all set to dive into Christmas parties and DIY’s when I stumbled upon these cute turkeys at Nordstrom! Of course, I HAD to style a kid’s Thanksgiving table around them!

If you saw my black and white Easter party, you already know that I love styling my parties around one or two unique items. Since we don’t really get fall colors here in Arizona (and I’m super jealous of all the fall pics I keep seeing on Instagram), I decided mixing the rustic turkeys with all the fall feels would be the perfect combination to get festive this Thanksgiving!

Party goods:

Fortunately, Michaels was having their fall clearance sale and I was able to snag some items that fit perfectly with the turkey decor. I was loving the maroon/berry color of the leaves so I decided to make that my main color, along with accents of orange and silver.

The pumpkins were actually a blue color so I spray painted them silver to blend in a bit better.

What’s Thanksgiving without cute turkey hats that double as party favors, right?! I mean, I’ve been DIY-ing Thanksgiving hats since I was 8 years old. Fortunately with the invention of my Cricut machine, they’ve gotten a little more sophisticated since I was a kid. That’s corrugated border roll from the teacher section at Hobby Lobby, shout out to my niece’s teacher for that genius idea. You can just put feathers or anything right into the holes, it’s so convenient!

Plates and napkins were all from Party City. I always buy my cutlery at the Container Store and this time I dressed it up with silver and orange washi tape. I started with one set and before you know it, I had done the whole table! Such a simple and easy way to make everything cohesive.

The final DIY of this party was the pumpkin pie cut outs. Sometimes I get crazy ideas in my head and I just have to run with them. Anyone else relate?! I had this alphabet cookie cutter set laying around and some fall cookie cutters so I thought I’d give it a try. Two pumpkin pies from Costco later and this was the result!

The cutters weren’t quite deep enough to cut through the whole pie so there was a lot of finesse involved. In the end though I was pretty happy with the results and I love the idea of being able to use different phrases going forward. Can’t wait to try this method again soon!

I hope this post gives you some last minute ideas to help you celebrate this Thanksgiving. Enjoy this special time with all your family and loved ones!
