Free “Grateful Mod” Party Printables for Operation Give Thanks

free modern thanksgiving party printables

You might have already seen the sneak peek from last week, but I’m excited to announce today that the new HWTM Grateful Mod” Party Collection to benefit Operation Give Thanks is now available for FREE download!

The collection includes: Fill-in Invitations, Napkin Rings/Vase Wraps, Place Cards, Square Favor Tags, Cupcake Toppers/Party Circles, Bottle Labels, Drink Tags, Paper Patterns and Party Embellishments. {See detailed views of everything below!}

Click here to download high-res PDFs of everything (in one 26M zip file).

Please note: Because this collection was created in honor of Operation Give Thanks with the overall goal of benefiting military families, I would really appreciate it if you would consider making an online donation – no matter how big or small – in return for downloading the collection!

Another great idea would be to somehow incorporate a charity element that benefits Operation Give Thanks into the party you host with these designs, whether it’s your traditional Thanksgiving dinner, a fall corporate event, your monthly Bunco group meet-up, fall cocktails & desserts with the girls, etc! (Pumpkin Pie Martini’s, anyone?!)

Here’s a little more info on Operation Give Thanks, direct from the source:

Operation Give Thanks is a nation-wide fundraising party to help Operation Shower continue our mission to throw amazing baby showers for military families to ease the burden of deployment.

We are often asked how to best help Operation Shower. We decided that since Operation Shower gives back to our military families through parties, so can YOU! We are asking people across the nation to host a party between now and the end of the year that will help to raise money for Operation Shower. What a wonderful way to express your gratitude and thanks at this special time of year.

Our long-term goal is to reach every military base in the nation. Our short-term goal is to raise $50,000 through Operation Give Thanks to enable us to shower over 200 more moms-to-be! That’s right, if you raise $250 for Operation Shower, that enables us to throw a full amazing baby shower with gifts for a military mom to be whose spouse is deployed for 6 months or longer!”

P.S. If you’re able to utilize these designs in parties, photo shoots for your products, DIY ideas, etc – we’d LOVE to see the pictures! The more ways we can spread the word about Operation Shower and inspire others to do the same, the better!! =)

I also want to give a special shout-out to my fellow designers that also created party printables for Operation Give Thanks – the fabulous women of: The TomKat Studio, Paper & Cake, Parties by Hardie and Paper & Pigtails!

Anyone else have issues with downloading the files? Keep getting the message the files are damaged…for the Party Embellishments, Place Cards, Napkin Rings, Favor Tags and Bottle Labels. The remaining files I was able to open with no problems.

Hi there! I’m not sure what’s going on with the .zip file, so I’m going to upload everything individually to Scribd.com (hopefully by tomorrow) and will update the links here as soon as that’s done! Keep you posted!

October 26, 2010 at 12:19 pm

jenn s. SAYS:

Just wanted to let you know that there are 2 options for downloading now – the original way with the .zip file, and then also through Scribd.com, which I think should help eliminate any errors! Here’s a link to everything at Scribd: http://www.scribd.com/document_collections/2694476

You can also just pick & choose what elements you want instead of downloading the whole collection.

There’s nothing wrong with the zip file. Looks like the files are doubled and the first half are no good. The second half are fine. =)
