Though I’m tempted to buy everything I see in Pier1 imports, I love creating homemade decorations for Thanksgiving. I like to keep the decor simple because, let’s be honest, most of the dining table will be decorated by the turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, bread rolls, etc.
This year I created a paper placemat for my guests. There is some color therapy, for when your uncle starts talking about politics, but more importantly, there is space for all your guests to write what they are thankful for.
You can download the paper placemat template by right-clicking with your mouse and clicking Save As. Save the pdf to your desktop.
If you have a printer (that prints ledger size) at home, you might be able to do it all yourself. But I opted to send the file to my local UPS Online Printing location. I printed it under the following specifications:
- 11×17 Ledger Paper
- Normal Paper Weight
- One side
If you decide to print the placemat, I would love to see! Tag your photos with @IslamiMommy or hashtag #Islamimommy.
Peace & Salam (and Happy Thanksgiving!)
