DIY: Last-Minute Thanksgiving Table Decor

Need a little last-minute decor inspiration for Thanksgiving tomorrow? This quick tabletop project can be put together just in time for Thanksgiving dinner. You might even be able to re-purpose some of the leftover materials from our pine cone pom project a few weeks back! Today we’re putting together a simple centerpiece and a cute napkin ring to give your hosting an extra dose of style. Ready? Grab your supplies and follow our lead.

What You’ll Need

  • Festive, fall-themed embellishments (we used dried florals and artificial pine cones from the craft store)
  • Double-sided tape
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Twine
  • Scissors

Napkin Ring

Cut your scrapbook paper down to strips that are two inches wide. Wrap and use your double-sided glue to attach and form a ring. Then, use your festive embellishments to decorate! Slip them over paper or cloth napkins for a gorgeous holiday look.

Centerpiece

Find any glassware you have around the house that could be used as a centerpiece (we used a simple circle vase we had lying around the office!). Then, fill it with sparkly pinecones, dried florals or whatever fits your fancy. A simple project like this can go a long way at the holidays… and your guests will be sure to love it!

If  you try this craft idea yourself, or if you have any DIY ideas to share, send your photos to blog@weddingpaperdivas.com and we’ll post them for all of our fans and followers.

Celebrating Valentine’s Day: Rant or Rave

From smiley stuffed animals and sweet greeting cards to boxes of chocolate and candy hearts, the shelves are stacking up with red, pink and romantic in preparation for Valentine’s Day. But just because you’re in love doesn’t mean you love ‘ole St. Valentine—while many couples adore February 14th, others may opt for celebrating in a non-traditional way, or by doing nothing at all! Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

How do (or don’t) you plan to spend Valentine’s Day this year? Do you go out, stay in or is it just another date on the calendar? Does Valentine’s Day make you want to rant or rave?
