Setting a Place for Thanks
This Thanksgiving, I wanted to take a little time to do something special for my family, so I decided to create some watercolor place cards for our dinner table. I had an assortment of gourds on display on my window ledge and on my front porch, so I used them as inspiration.
I used 3" x 5" watercolor postcards that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I painted the gourds on the lower half of the card. When they were dry, I folded them in half and then added
each person's name. On the inside of each card, I jotted the date and wrote a little note about what I was thankful for about that person.
After our Thanksgiving prayer and toast, we went around the table and everyone read their note. It was a simple, but very special moment. After the meal was done, everyone had a little something to remember the day and how blessed I feel to have them in my life.
