Happy Thanksgiving, beautiful friends! It’s been such a pleasure experiencing the change in seasons. I have to admit that I’m not a fan of the cold, but I do love the amazing holidays that come with it. Thanksgiving is one of my all-time favorites, and it’s not just because of the food. While growing up I didn’t have much of a place to spend the holidays, but I’ve been blessed to experience family and love through the eyes of my beloved friends.
For that reason Thanksgiving is so special to me. I now have family of my own to give my love, but then it always brought me to tears at the immeasurable love families had for each other on Thanksgiving. Maybe they didn’t know it at the time, but what a blessing to be thankful for; To be surrounded by your friends, family, and chosen-families. And just as with those memories, I always loved the little details that each host put into their Thanksgiving tables.
So in honor of those, I like to add personal details to my table as well. Whether you are hosting a Friendsgiving or a family affair, you can add a little pizazz to any seating arrangement with a little FJ magic.
I loved how these little win cork place settings came together with a few frames, a couple vintage buttons, and some alphas. It was so easy to add a little character to the recycled corks! I really fell in love with the simplicity of them, and I’ll be adoring them in front of all my lovely friends’ Thanksgiving plates.
These were so simple to put together. All you need is some wine corks and some toothpicks. All that’s left is to design your place card and adhere the toothpick with some hot glue. I created the whole in my cork with an embroidery hole punch, and that made it really easy to puncture the cork with my toothpick.
I hope you are inspired today to put a little extra pizazz in your Thanksgiving table to make your guests feel extra special. And remember today all of your many blessings; Surround yourself in love, and give those around you graciousness and humbleness! Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
