Our Family Thanksgiving Traditions #MyKindOfHoliday

Hey guys!  I hope that you are doing well and had a wonderful weekend.  Today we are partnering with Target and their #MyKindOfHoliday program to share some of our very favorite Thanksgiving traditions. We are also going to share some of their new products that will help you create beautiful traditions with your family during the holidays.

Thankful Bucket Garland #MYKindOfHoliday

As we approach this very special holiday, it is super important to both Bonnie and I for our families to really think about what we are grateful for.  Last year, Bonnie and her family so enjoyed their Thankful Bucket Garland.  Not only was it beautiful, but it was a great way for them to share what they were thankful for before the big day.

Festive Table #MyKindOfHoliday


One of the things that I am most excited about as we prepare for this special holiday is setting the perfect festive table.  I shared with you guys last week the kids thanksgiving table that I designed.

Thanksgiving Centerpiece #MyKindOfHoliday

Target can be your one-stop place for setting a beautiful table.  In fact, I in my tablescape, I used melamine plates, folding chairs, and brown kraft paper from Target. I even was able to include an activity at the table with the “I am Thankful for” cards.

Perfect Table Setting #MyKindOfHoliday

Don’t worry… if you are more formal and want to set a gorgeous table… you won’t be disappointed.  Target has everything to set an elegant table using elements that will carry you straight through the holiday season.  I adore all of their mercury glass accents this season.

Thanksgiving Traditions #MyKindOfHoliday

I think my favorite Thanksgiving tradition is getting in the kitchen with my kids.  Last year we made cupcakes together to share how thankful we are for those we are closest with in our community.  It was so fun to bake together and such a great lesson for the girls to learn the importance of friends and showing them how much we care.

Pretty Platters #MyKindOfHoliday

You can deliver all of those goodies in style with these fun platters.  They are perfect for all of those holiday parties where you need to bring a little something.  The best part is that you can use them all year long!
