Day 9 - Ten Days of Turkey

With the big day drawing near, today I want to focus on decorations.  To be honest I found so many that I wanted to make that I will be making decorations until Turkey day 2011!  I wish I had found some of these earlier so that I would have time to make them for this year.  Like this one over at UCreate that was created by guest blogger Tammy from She Wears Flowers (gee that is a long list to get to the goodies!)

You can get the step by step directions and the pattern pieces here.  I love these and can't wait to make some for next year!

and then there are these adorable fall felt pot holders, although I would use them as trivets or make smaller versions to use as coasters even!
These are the brain child of Brett Bara over at Design Sponge and you can find the pattern and instructions here.  Looking at them again you could even enlarge the pattern and use these as placemats!

That brings me to this adorable couple:
I picture these cuties being used as placecards.  I made some similiar to use as table decorations for our fall church dinner.  I set one couple on each table.  You can find instructions to make both over at Child Made by clicking here
Then there is this turkey that I can picture in the middle of the kids table with rolls in it

Believe it or not this is crafted from a paper bag and construction paper!  You can get really basic instructions at Woman's Day by clicking here.  And in that train of thought I found this vintage inspired dinner roll holder that if you did in fall colors would look nice on the grown up table.

Virginia over at Gingercake created a pattern for this after finding a vintage one at an antique store.  Fortunately she decided to share her pattern as a free download that you can grab by visiting her post here.
Hope you found some decorating inspiration!  Would love for you to share any other ideas you come across so I can add them to my wish list!

Until next time,
