Today's post is the second in a series of sponsored posts with Astrobrights Papers focusing on creative ways to use color paper for Thanksgiving decor, as a part of their Colorize Your Party campaign.. Yesterday was a bit more polished; today is all about the kids' table.
We have this picnic table from my childhood that my parents let us have, and it's the perfect option for a kid's table. I added those fun throws to the seats for some extra fluff (Brigie loves anything snuggly, so she was all about this) and I set the table with a few pieces of china (adore these mercury glass pieces!), those darling little vintage glasses Nana found, and some handmade feather crowns.
For some fun treats (seriously, the girls thought this was the best thing ever - waking up from naps for an outdoor treat picnic!) I used some Kellogg's recipes to make these pilgrim hat cookies (but I used the dark chocolate Keebler Fudge Stripes and made the icing go all the way around because, well, icing) and this cranberry mango chutney with Keebler Club Crackers (because I'll sign up for anything with cranberries - this treat was more for me) and then added in some pretty peppermint meringues.
The girls dove right in, and I'll be honest, it was so much fun. I was expecting this to be a bit more difficult, but they thought it was super special and I'm going to have to make this happen more often. They were especially charmed by the straws in the big girl cups (I added on some little paper feathers for a festive touch) and it was like a for real tea party to them.
I'll be posting details soon on how to make the crowns and other fun items from yesterday shortly.
Vivi was really excited about those pilgrim hats. It was such a fun surprise finding a marshmallow in inside.
At the end of all the snacking, I was treated to a special dance performance.
You can see the sugar rush in Vivi's eyes . . .
Thanks so much to Astrobrights Papers for inspiring such a fun and unexpected afternoon. I'll definitely be doing this more often. Be sure to check out yesterday's post for more inspiration and stay tuned for all the DIY details. (Find Brigette's super cute shirt here, and Vivi's snuggly pullover here!)
