Keeping Kids Happy at Thanksgiving Dinner

The best way to keep kids patient and happy at any long family meal is to give them something to do.  Naturally kids aren’t the best at waiting, and they tend to have more time to wait since they don’t eat as much as adults.  So if you’re having kids at your Thanksgiving meal it’s good to give them something to entertain themselves. Here are some suggestions for your Thanksgiving Table this year.


The Container Store recommends having out craft paper and crayons for coloring, having a fun kid friendly snacks out like their Tropical Lemonade Punch and Turkey Treat Snack Mix put together with their turkey tail feather craft.

Water Bottle Labels are always a Nice Touch for any Event!

Water Bottle Labels are always a Nice Touch for any Event!

I’m a big fan of using water bottle labels. I think they add a special little touch to a normal party item.  They are simple and cheap to have made and so much fun!  You can have them made, printed and sent to you or you download them and print them yourself.  You can have generic ones or customized ones.IMG_0255 1525390_10100564429007445_1438160993_n

I have had water bottle labels at both my bachelorette and my baby shower.  This shows what a fan I am! I also just designed some that I will be having at my son’s first birthday party!  If you are looking for water bottle labels head over to Etsy! Even if you’re not having me design them for you chose from one of the other million mom and pop shops out there, there are a million designs to chose from for every occasion and you’re probably helping out a starving college student or a stay at home mom! There are a lot of great designs out there to chose from! Sale Water Bottle
