We cut out some leaves from multiple colors of paper and tied a ribbon to each. Then we placed several branches in an urn. Simply place some markers near the blank leaves and have guests add something they're thankful for. It was a really great way to see all our blessings hanging on a "tree."
Mom helped with all the tablescapes and I think they were just perfect. Our tableclothes were white, so we added small vases with green mums, orange pumpkins and some squash. Mom made a few new napkins to mix in with some orange ones I already had. Since I didn't have enough silverware in our wedding pattern, we mixed all the silverware up and I think it turned out really fun!
After the meal, the guys enjoyed a game of football in our backyard while Brent's mom did a craft project with the little ones. I love that we have the space to entertain like this now. Speaking of blessings...this house is a huge one for us!
