Set the Table with Children's Hour!


Thanksgiving is around the corner and Maggi Harding shares a meaningful way to set a gratitude-filled table for this great holiday. Take a look at her awesome place cards below!


"Need a quick but inexpensive way to dress up your Thanksgiving table?  Take a look at my Snapguide tutorial to make some quick napkin rings and placecards for your table.  Use the placecard to print your menu or write a personal message to your guest.  I decided to add a Thanksgiving Prayer to my placecards.

Tips:  To keep these low budget, utilize scraps to make these, but be sure to choose scraps that color coordinate.  To make these quickly, take the assembly line approach and complete each step for all the pieces before moving on to the next step.

Here's the text of the Thanksgiving Prayer if you'd like to use it:

Our Father in Heaven, 
We give thanks for the pleasure 
Of gathering together for this occasion. 
We give thanks for this food 
Prepared by loving hands. 
We give thanks for life, 
The freedom to enjoy it all 
And all other blessings. 
As we partake of this food, 
We pray for health and strength 
To carry on and try to live as

You would have us. 
This we ask in the name of Christ, 
Our Heavenly Father. 
- Harry Jewell" ~Maggi

Beautiful Maggy! Very inspirational.. thanks for sharing!!

What a fantastic opportunity to win so.e great items!

Beautiful prayer and so pretty too!

What a special project to include G45 at the Thanksgiving table. Will be making these with thanks.

Very pretty! Thanks for the tutoria!

Awesome prize package this week. That's a great idea with the prayer on the napkin ring. That would be a great alternative to how we say prayer. My husband usually has to say it as the oldest son, but this way we could all say it together.

Such a beautiful color palette!

Just started working with Children's Hour...so cute...and thanks for the inspiration!

Wonderful inspiration today!!!!

What a beautiful prize - just what I need.

Maggi creates a great rustic look with her napkin rings and place cards.

This is such an awesome idea! And beautiful. My brother always says a quote from Abraham Lincoln and then a prayer. Printing that quote like this is something my family would love!

Great idea and very different. Lovely for Christmas or birthdays.

Never thought of making my own napkin rings - great idea! I do make table decorations and banners for Thanksgiving and other holidays - they're some of my favorite craft projects!

What a nice idea for the table! Very nice, doing this :-)

Lovely way to decorate the Thanksgiving table.

What a beautiful idea!

A perfect project made from the paper collection featured in your giveaway!
