Thanksgiving Celebration

We had a Thanksgiving celebration at our church and it was wonderful. The children made some of the decorations. They were super cute and easy to make. These are nothing but a partial roll of toilet paper covered with material scraps with a brown paper bag twisted and tucked in the center for the pumpkin stalk. We cut out some green leaves and added them.

This was the children’s table. They could color while they waited. It was a big hit.

Here’s another view of one of the tables. Yesterday’s post show-cased some beautiful candle sticks. Be sure and check them out.


Can you tell these two lovely ladies are related? Loved sitting across from them and eating together.
