Do It Your Style

Paper Flowers Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Young ones love to help set the table, especially when company's coming over. This year get them involved early with crafty centerpiece ideas they can lend a hand in creating. The end result will be a refreshing change from a fresh flower arrangement that will make you all feel proud.
 
Remember making those crepe paper flowers when you were young? Pass along the tradition by twisting and tying some Thanksgiving blooms with your kids. These oversized blossoms are so easy to make. Plus the large scale means you only have to make a few -- an important factor when you're working with short attention spans. See supplies list below.
