The countdown to Thanksgiving has begun! And in case you’re wondering it’s only 2 weeks away! As busy moms we know how time flies so buckle up and get ready because it’s going to be here before you know it!
The holiday season is our favorite time of year and we don’t want any of you mamas to stress out! We want you to enjoy it as much as we do! By planning ahead and getting as much ready beforehand will eliminate the last minute trips to the grocery store the night before Thanksgiving. But in order to stay on schedule if you haven’t started your planning for your Thanksgiving feast it’s time to start planning now.
If you’re heading over the river and through the woods to Grandma’s house for Thanksgiving then you’re in luck. While you don’t need to worry about planning an entire menu or adding some festive touches to your Thanksgiving table we’re pretty sure you won’t be going empty handed. Plan now what you’re bringing. Maybe it’s your famous Pumpkin Pie that your family can’t resist every year or maybe it’s a Sweet Potato Casserole that everyone loves. Whatever you’re making or bringing to Thanksgiving now is the time to plan or chat with the person that is hosting Thanksgiving and find out what they would like you to contribute to the meal.
Thankful for Leftover tags
Nothing beats leftovers right? Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving or not these adorable Thankful for leftover tags are perfect to send all your guests home with some turkey and mashed potatoes the next day. Simple print out the tags and cut them by hand. If you have a cutting machine like a Cricut simply save these to your computer then upload them to your design studio to print and cut. We suggest using cardstock but these will be just as cute on regular white paper as well.
Once printed simply attached them to bags or even take out boxes that you can find at any craft store using double sided tape or you can print these out on sticker paper. You could also use a hole punch and tie them to a bag or box using twine like we did.

It’s time to write your menu down and create your shopping list. Use on cute and handy Thanksgiving Menu Planner to keep your menu and shopping list all in one place. Simply download for free and enjoy!
Thanksgiving Place cards
Keeping with our theme we created these Thanksgiving place cards that you can use for your Thanksgiving table and/or buffet. Just download and print and write each persons name on each card and fold in half. If you have a buffet these are perfect cards to write what each dish is. We suggest using cardstock but regular white paper will work just as well.
Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart Printable
Thanksgiving is all about being thankful and grateful for our family and friends and the bible verse give thanks with a grateful heart from 1 Thessalonians 5:18 truly expresses the meaning not only during Thanksgiving but that we should give thanks with a grateful heart each and every day. This lovely printable would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving buffet, tucked in a shelf or hung on the wall. Simply download for free and print. This print fits perfectly in an 8×10 frame. This would make a lovely hostess gift too!
We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
We’ll be chatting about these more tomorrow on our Facebook page so please join us at 12pm EST on The 29 Minute Mom Facebook page!
