Happy Monday! I have been sitting on a big feature over here and it’s been driving me crazy! Today, over on the RUE Magazine blog and later this week in the magazine, our Thanksgiving table designed with Cricut is being featured! I feel so proud that the lovely people at Cricut have entrusted me with such a huge opportunity, and I’m so excited to share it with you!
Between now and Thanksgiving, we will be sharing all of the DIY Projects that we created for our tablescape and bar cart using our Cricut Maker and Cricut products, but today I wanted to share some of the pictures from the feature!
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, although most people that know me think that it’s Christmas, because I go absolutely crazy with decorating, shopping, and crafting. But it’s Thanksgiving! I love that Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family, and it signals the start of the official holiday season in our house. We have a huge traditional family dinner, and every year I love coming up with new ways to decorate the table and finding new recipes for everyone to enjoy. So this feature was a huge opportunity for me to plan out what I wanted to do this year! My design sense this year has been about calming neutrals and metallics, and that is reflected in my tablescape.
These green-gray pumpkins and white pumpkins are ALL over my house this year and I was intent on including them on the table centerpiece. I couldn’t resist a touch of orange though.
If you look closely that the center of the table, you’ll see an important Cricut DIY project (and probably my favorite project I did!), a Magnolia Leaf Garland.
With a mix of Cricut papers–including pearl cardstock and crepe paper, I created branches of Magnolia leaves that I used down the middle of the table, along with the pumpkins and cotton branches. I love how it turned out!
I always like to include Menu cards at my place settings (especially since I change recipes every year!), and these were created with the Write and Cut feature of the Cricut Maker.
Another of my favorite projects were these customized wine glasses using Cricut vinyl.
Using Cricut Iron-on vinyl and foil, I also made this custom table runner:
In addition to the tablescape, I also styled a bar cart (we love having a good bar cart at the holidays!) using more items custom-made using the Cricut Maker.
Our signature drink for this year is a Bourbon Apple Cider Cocktail served in these customized double old-fashioned glasses with Cricut adhesive foil.
Also on the bar cart were these pumpkin cocktail napkins–that I unbelievably made from scratch! With the new rotary blade and adaptive tool system that is the selling point of the Cricut Maker, I was able to cut the fabric for the napkin into a perfect square, sew the napkins exactly how I wanted them, and then use Cricut iron-on vinyl to further customize them. I was only limited by my imagination!
I also cut and made these leather coasters with Cricut metallic leather and iron-on foil that were personalized for each of our Thanksgiving guests.
I can’t wait to share the rest of the DIY project details in the coming days. Get your crafting supplies ready!
