Turkey Treat Bags With Printable Tags. Put any candy or fun goodies inside these cute bags to give out to friends and family on Thanksgiving

If you’ve seen any of my Thanksgiving posts you know I can’t cook Thanksgiving food. I can make desserts and cute decorations that’s more my thing. This year I am making a side dish and even that intimidates me! I cannot tell you how many times I have ruined mashed potatoes. We are also doing Thanksgiving a little early to work with the families schedule so I really need to start figuring out what I can make. I did figure out how to make these cute turkey treat bags with free printable tags and that’s important too ;). These little turkey bags are really easy! You can stuff them with candy or non-candy options, whichever you prefer. Stickers, crayons or bubbles could be fun too. You can hand them out to kids in class. I think I will make some stuffed with fun little toys and crayons for the kids table at Thanksgiving. It is hard to get kids to sit through a big meal and activities always help :). read more

Thankful Tree

Thankful Tree! Write down what you are thankful for on a leaf and add it to the thankful tree

I am jumping on the bandwagon and making a Thankful tree! I have an abundance of fall leaves so why not! I was tempted to take all of my fall leaves, put them in a pile and jump in it. The fake ones are as close as I get to falling leaves since I live in Arizona. There is still time I might still make a pile of leaves ;).

Any way to show thanks is good and I like the idea of using it for decoration as well. Earlier this week I made thankful balloons that were a lot of fun, you can see them here: http://valeventgal.com/2015/11/thankful-balloons/ I am using both the tree and balloons for Thanksgiving. We are adding leaves to the thankful tree throughout the month that we are thankful for to keep up the grateful spirit. I have a lot to be thankful for and some of them are silly things like pizza but sometimes it’s good to acknowledge the little things too! read more

Thanksgiving cupcakes that look like savory Thanksgiving food but taste like sweet treats

Thanksgiving cupcakes are not the typical Thanksgiving food but it is nice to have something besides pie.I think every holiday is a cupcake occasion. I do love pie but I like to have a variety of desserts, in one sitting. I have a thing for sweets that look like savory foods. If you haven’t seen my hot dog cupcakes check those out too:  http://valeventgal.com/2015/06/hot-dog-cupcakes/ Everyone will love these cupcakes and be super impressed with how much they look like mashed potatoes, corn, and stuffing. They are easy to make and you can use store bought cupcakes to save time or use your favorite cupcake recipe. You could make one or all of these for your Thanksgiving dessert table! read more

Thankful Balloons!

| Balloons, Thanksgiving

Thankful Balloons. Write what you are thankful for on a balloon to show thanks this Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is coming up soon! Do you usually cook for Thanksgiving? I have never been the one to cook everything for Thanksgiving. I can make a simple side dish and bake a pie. My mom usually cooks the turkey and most of the meal. I will help out with what I can but cooking just doesn’t come naturally to me. I am thankful for my mom for all that she does around the holidays and really year round. I am thankful for my entire family because I really lucked out with an amazing family! I thought a fun way to show what you are thankful for on Thanksgiving is with thankful balloons. You can decorate balloons with fall leafs and write what you are thankful for. They are easy to make and fun to take pictures with so you can remember what everyone is thankful for. You can take pictures all together with the balloons as a background or individually holding up the balloons. A fun way to show thanks! read more
