BE THANKFUL–utensil holders

Fall is my very favorite season and I have asked a few of my favorite bloggers to share some of their fall favorites here with you.  I am so excited to have Jamie, Jodie and Jen from Eighteen 25 sharing a fun idea for sprucing up your Thanksgiving table decor with some adorable utensil holders as part of The Idea Room Fall Festival!

Hi there! Jennifer, Jamie and Jodie from eighteen25 here today and we are so excited!
We love the Idea Room and we are so happy to be able to call Amy our friend. :)
We are so excited for fall to arrive! Here in Vegas the cooler weather can’t get here soon enough. There are so many things we love about fall. Some of our most favorite things are… pumpkin crunch bagels, yummy fall scents, focusing on gratitude and getting together for Thanksgiving dinner!
Today we want to share an idea that you can add to your Thanksgiving Dinner place settings…
BE thankful
u t e n s i l    h o l d e r s

• kraft colored or white cardstock
• be thankful sheet
- download black & white version HERE 
download gold version HERE
- download blue version HERE
• colored pencils
• sewing machine or adhesive

• print out the be thankful sheet (we printed the black & white onto kraft paper)
• cut in half (you might need to trim some off the sides too to make it even)
• if you printed the black & white… get to coloring, or put the kids to work (they’ll love getting to help decorate for the big dinner)
• otherwise, score and fold where the pattern ends
• stitch the sides together or adhere with a strong adhesive

• add your silverware (or lovely plastic-ware) and a napkin and it’s all ready for your guests to admire before digging in to those fluffy mashed potatoes.
We’d love for you to come visit us over on eighteen25.

Thanks so much for having us Amy!!
Thanks so much for joining us.  I just LOVE the girls from Eighteen 25.  They have an amazing site filled with some great projects and ideas.  I was able to get to know Jen and Jamie in person this past summer and am so glad that I did.  They are just as amazing in person as they are online!  If you have not checked out their site, you are missing out!  –Amy
