thanksgiving printable menu

Last year, we celebrated Thanksgiving with some good friends and we were eating dessert when we realized that we'd totally forgotten to set out the beautiful salad I'd brought to share. It was huge and by that time everyone was so full it barely got touched!! We were eating salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a few days after!!

This year, you won't forget anything with this handy Thanksgiving Feast printable. It looks so pretty you could easily pop it into a frame and use it as part of your decoration. 

thanksgiving kids printable placemat

I LOVE kids, but I don't love it when kids start running around all crazy-style at big gatherings {and then when they feel the need to start screeching too... oh, my!!} To keep the running at bay we have these fun Happy Turkey Day Thanksgiving Placemats that you can print for every child and have at their place setting. Leave plenty of crayons around for everyone to use, and let them decorate to their heart's content:) I took mine to a copy shop to have it printed out on ledger-sized paper {I think it was 11x17} which gave the kids lots more room to work. There are some funny jokes, a crossword, and places for kids to draw a turkey and their favorite Thanksgiving meal. If you want a few other fun ideas to entertain the kiddos while the adults chat, you'll for sure want to try our Thanksgiving Bingo and Scavenger Hunt!

thanksgiving free placemat

One tip my friend had was to cover the kids table with butcher paper {or craft paper would work great too} and after the kids have finished up their placemats, they can color and draw all over the paper-covered-table. A big plus to that is you can just roll it up and toss it out when dinner is done:)

thanksgiving printable quote

Pop this beautiful "In All Things Give Thanks" quote into your favorite frame and place it up on the mantle. If you are having lots of guests, I think it would be so fun to have pictures of all the families around this quote. It seems like what people are most grateful for are their families, myself included:)

thanksgiving printable party pack

Aren't the place cards beautiful? I love the sweet quotes to put on each place setting too. Leah did a number of different designs, so you will have some beautiful choices as you print these out to use.

thanksgiving game during dinner

For a little something fun, we have a Thanksgiving version of 'spin the bottle.' Cut out the printable and use a small brad to attach the arrow spinner. Take turns at the table, spinning and reading out the questions, then letting everyone have a turn to answer. If you finish up with this, you'd have a great time using these Table Topics Conversation Starters for Families to learn more about your guests, and have a LOT of fun doing it!

12 Days of Christmas Countdown for your Sweetheart http://www.thedatingdivas.com/just-the-two-of-us/12-days-of-christmas-countdown/ http://www.thedatingdivas.com/just-the-two-of-us/12-days-of-christmas-countdown/#comments Wed, 26 Nov 2014 12:00:25 +0000 http://www.thedatingdivas.com/?p=61147 12 days of christmas for your sweetheart

My True Love Gave to Me

Stumped to find the perfect gift for your husband this year? Me too!!

Then I thought that since "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is such a classic song, I wanted to put a fun spin on it to surprise my husband this season!

12 Days Of Christmas for your spouse

[pinit count="horizontal" always-show-count="1" url="http://www.thedatingdivas.com/?p=61147" image_url="http://www.thedatingdivas.com/wp-content/uploads/12-Days-Of-Christmas-for-your-spouse.jpg" description="12 days of Christmas gift ideas for my husband done- gotta print these tags up to use asap. www.TheDatingDivas.com"]

Christmas is right around the corner and I always have the hardest time choosing the perfect gift for my husband! For a fun spin, I decided that this year that it would be SO EXCITING to have a 12 Days of Christmas countdown for my husband to get him in the Christmas spirit. {Who wouldn't want 12 days worth of Christmas gifts?!?}

I partnered up with Dedra from Prettiful Designs to create these fun and fresh Christmas tags, cards, and poems. I just love the crisp Christmas colors and designs she created! YOU totally score on this too because we are giving you all of Dedra's beautifully designed printables for FREE!! {squeal!} Check out her site to see all of her great designs:)

12 days of christmas present ideas

I wanted this Christmas Countdown to include lots of nice things, but not break the bank! Here's a list of the gifts I bought to give to my husband that match up with the rhymes. There is a gorgeous paper you can print out to keep in your purse to take to the store as you stock up on items to give your favorite fella :)

Day One: Massage Oil Day Two: app credit, phone bling, or new picture for screen Day Three: 3 pairs of socks, new shoes, or Slippers Day Four: 4 Sports Items {golf balls, tennis racket, bike lock}  Day Five: 5 Of His Favorite things {gum, candy, snacks, books, magazines} Day Six: 6 Pack Soda Day Seven: 7 Hot Chocolate Items {mug, marshmallows, different flavors of hot chocolate, spoon, candy cane}  Day Eight: 8 Favorite Cookies  Day Nine:  9 songs on iTunes,  or make a CD Day Ten: $10 Cold Stone {or other food} gift card Day Eleven: 11 Small picture frames or wallet sized pictures Day Twelve: Jacket OR Gift inside his jacket {or coat closet}  

12 days of christmas wrapping materials

Be sure to have plenty of wrapping paper and ribbon. I wanted my wrapping paper to compliment the gift tag colors, and found some that went perfect at good old Walmart. I think that they turned out looking great! You could use any wrapping paper you have on hand, I think a simple brown or white craft paper could look nice too, although {in my opinion} the sparkly ribbon made these gifts really stand out :)  

12 days of christmas cards

This countdown starts with a fun card that you can leave out to surprise your husband the night before. We have two versions- one to give to a husband, and one to give to a wife :) That's right all you fellas reading right now, this Christmas Countdown is something your wife would L.O.V.E.!!

12 days of christmas for your sweetheart

Check out the gorgeous tags you can put on each present! This way your spouse will know exactly which present to open each day, and it makes a gorgeous display to see all 12 gifts set up at once. Just make sure they are up high if you've got sweet kiddos or energetic pets roaming around your home. {wink!}

12 days of christmas countdown day 3

Some of these gifts are 'just for fun' and others are a little more practical :) My husband has been needing new ankle socks for a while now, so for Day 3 I wrapped him up a set that he will be very happy to get.

12 days of christmas countdown day 5

Day 5 is full of favorite snacks and treats, which are super easy to pick up on your next grocery store trip. My husband had tried some Jalapeno Beef Jerky on a golf trip that he was raving about. 3 stores later I finally found some at Target to surprise him with. Just for the record, it is REALLY good if you like just a bit of heat :)

12 days of christmas countdown day 6

The poem for Day 6 is " Six geese a laying, oh my they are busy. For you though, my love, I picked something more fizzy!" Choose your spouse's favorite soda pop and extend the gift a little by playing fun card games while you sip on them.

12 days of christmas countdown day 7

Day 7 includes all the fixings for delicious hot chocolate. Add a candy cane stir stick to give it a little Christmas flair! 

12 days of christmas countdown day 8

For Day 8 you may want to be a little bit creative. If your husband loves prepackaged cookies like Oreos, you are set. If he prefers something homemade you can make some, hide them in the freezer and just leave a note inside an empty wrapped box to look in the freezer for his cookies. Or you could have the plan to make them fresh that day for him. Whatever works with your time schedule :)

12 days of christmas countdown day 10

Day 10 is one of my favorites because it is a treat you BOTH can enjoy {and who doesn't love a gift that gives right back!} Coldstone is one of our favorite places to get a special treat, but you could really choose any food related gift card for this gift.

 

Day 12 I reserved for my 'BIG' Christmas gift. The way I wrote the poem will make it easy for you to adapt and give your husband {or wife} anything you'd like. You can give them a jacket, or hide the gift in their jacket, or even in your coat closet:) I am not going to say what my husband will find on Day 12 this Christmas, just in case he reads this post before, but I think  he is going to really, really like it!

FREE CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN FOR YOUR SWEETHEART PRINTABLES HERE

Get started on this amazing gift today, and make your Christmas the best one yet!

If you love the idea of a Christmas Countdown but want to try something a little different, check out the Spouse Christmas Countdown, The 12 Days of Christmas Punch Poster, 12 Days of KissMas. or try this spicy version of the Christmas Countdown.

White Elephant Party Banner

A big thank you to Diva Chrissy for capturing these gorgeous images of our pack's DIY banner. This decoration contains 3 tiers of pennants that can be strung on baker's twine or ribbon.

White Elephant Party Banner2

For added charm, we suggest stringing peanuts and ribbon ties on a piece of fishing line. This isn't as hard as it looks, we promise! You just need a bag of peanuts and a long sewing needle. I actually had the most success by using an 1/8-inch metal drill bit to drill each side first.

White Elephant Banner Tutorial

This extra step made threading the garland a breeze!... just make sure to be super careful with the placement of your fingers when using a drill!

Party Food

For added charm, we suggest stringing peanuts and ribbon ties on a piece of fishing line. This isn't as hard as it looks, we promise! You just need a bag of peanuts and a long sewing needle. I actually had the most success by using an 1/8-inch metal drill bit to drill each side first.

This extra step made threading the garland a breeze!... just make sure to be super careful with the placement of your fingers when using a drill!

Trust me I've been there and I feel ya! This is the exact reason why I love this date idea!!!

You can't tell me you're not excited about this date night!!!

So how do these fabulous printables work? You need to print them out to find out, kidding. But seriously you need to print them out. Print out the inserts and envelope pdf's. Simply cut the inserts out.  Now follow the directions on the pdf's to make your super cute envelopes. 

There are four different sets of envelopes one for the morning, afternoon, evening, and bedroom. Each category will contain two inserts with 3-5 different choices of activities to do during those hours. There are also 1 blank insert per category for  you to personalize with your favorite ideas. 

You can use the inserts and envelopes several different ways. First choose which date you want to do, morning, lunch, evening, or bedroom. Then either place:

1. one insert into each envelope. 

2. two inserts into each envelope. 

3. all 3 inserts, including the blank one that you personalize, into each envelope. 

Once you have chosen the insert(s) and envelope, you'll need to decide how you want to prepare this date. You can either: 

1. Give envelope and insert to your spouse the week prior to date night. Give them one day to choose which date they want to do. Once they've chosen, head back here and grab all the printables and ideas you need to pull off your date. 

2. Give envelope and inserts an hour or so before the date. Together grab all the needed items and ideas from our site and prepare your date together. 

The choice is up to you.  Regardless of what you choose to do, save the inserts and envelopes for future dates. You have 9-15 possible dates per category, awesome!!!!!

Long Distance relationships are super tough - but this helps to keep both partners focused on the end result. www.TheDatingDivas.com"]

If you are in a long distance relationship right now, or will be soon, it can be very difficult on a marriage. We have several Divas who have experienced or are currently experiencing being in a long distance relationship, and we want to make certain that you have the tools that you need to make your marriage not only survive the distance... but to minimize the inevitable struggles that will happen because of it. That is why Diva Heather (who is currently IN a long distance relationship) wrote this article detailing what she does to minimize the distance between her and her hubby while he's away from home. Regardless of how long you and your spouse will be separated, this article will definitely help both of you to stay focused on what's most important during your time apart and to help you celebrate the moments you have together!

You've had the menu planned for weeks, the guests assigned to bring their favorite feast foods, and the house is {finally!} clean... at least for a minute!

Look at these festive Thanksgiving Bingo cards Kristin at CdotLove designed exclusively for us, and is giving to all you fabulous readers for FREE!! Whoot! Whoot!

Aren't they just darling?!? Kristin is such a great designer and is so easy to work with, if you ever need custom designs done, she is the girl for you!

thanksgiving bingo calling cards

Included are these big, bright, and oh, soooo beautiful bingo calling cards. They are the perfect size for little hands, and for everyone to easily see. I'd suggest printing them off on cardstock so you can use them over and over again. I slipped my bingo cards into clear plastic sheet protectors, but you could laminate them too if you wanted them to be extra durable. There are 6 different cards to choose from so you can have lots of players!

Make sure to have plenty of bingo markers on hand, especially if they are edible and sugar-filled {wink!} We loved playing with candy corn but you could easily use foam markers like these cute fall shapes, or even plain cheerios to keep it on the healthy side :)

My kids have played this Thanksgiving Bingo game over and over, and over again. It was especially fun in our new teepee, how festive is that for Thanksgiving!?! Love it! We got our gigantic one from Land of Nod, but I found this Canvas Teepee that you can customize and decorate yourself. So fun! My kids also had a great time wearing the feather and pilgrim headbands. I just printed up these Free Thanksgiving Photo Booth Props and attached them to paper headbands. Voila, instant costumes!

Check out this fresh-air-inspiring Thanksgiving Day Scavenger Hunt Kristin at CdotLove created too! This is the perfect way to get everyone out of the house during that gap between dinner being finished and before the pie is served. Growing up we always went on a big walk after our Thanksgiving meal. We would discover all the fun fall changes along the path and find our way to the park to rake and jump in the leaves. These are such great memories!

Having this scavenger hunt to do along the way will add a lot of fun to your Thanksgiving day, and give everyone a chance to take in some fresh air and get a little bit of exercise. {That will give you the perfect excuse to have 2 slices of pie when you get back, right?!}

You can split your crowd into teams, or let everyone find their own items. Having a prize would be a fun incentive... winner gets the first slice of pie!

That's $2300 worth of goodies for you AND your friends! www.TheDatingDivas.com"]

One LUCKY reader Will Win the ULTIMATE ENJOY THE RIDE GIVEAWAY

We really want you to have a blast this Holiday Season and The Madsen Bikes are the perfect way to ENJOY THE RIDE!

The MADSEN Bike was designed around the idea that a bicycle can do more!

Its rear cargo bucket has two removable bench seats, each with two lap belts, thus potentially carrying up to four children--or two kids with groceries, scooters, soccer balls, beach gear, etc. etc. etc.

The possibilities are endless!

The weight limit is 600 pounds (271 kg) for rider plus cargo. Kids love the bike because they are within talking distance of mom or dad and can see the world zoom around them, as if they were the ones driving the bicycle. Parents love the bike because they can ditch the car, actively enjoy the outdoors and keep the kids happy all at the same time! The MADSEN design is sleek and beautiful, with great color choices and optional front rack that looks awesome and is very handy.

YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS BIKE!!!!

...OH, and because we REALLY, really, really like YOU we decided we're also going to throw in

four $100 gift cards to Amazon or/and Target.

**That's just about $2,300 in Prizes**
