Grateful Mod Thanksgiving {Part 1 – the Table}

Modern Thanksgiving Table Ideas

This Modern Thanksgiving Table was inspired by – and utilizes – the “Grateful Mod” printable party collection that I designed for Operation Give Thanks! You can click here to download the printables and get more info on the wonderful effort from Operation Shower in my earlier post right here.

I really had fun working on this table – especially with the centerpiece, which was inspired by the little tree illustrations on the printables!

I hope this inspires you to bring a dose of mod to Thanksgiving this year! Lots more pics below… and stay tuned for Part 2, which will feature a 2nd DIY centerpiece idea + coordinating party favors & desserts.

Kristin SAYS:

Love the table!! Is that scrapbooking paper for the coasters or are those napkins? Do you mind sharing where you purchased the napkins if they are napkins because they patch so perfectly? Thanks!~

Hi Kristin –
I actually rented the napkins at a local party supply near me called Raphael’s Party Rentals. $7.50 for to rent 10 of them and they already come nicely pressed! :) The color is called “pumpkin”.

Update: forgot to mention earlier that the “coasters” are actually beverage napkins I found at Target! They have such great paper plates & napkins for fall right now. There were 3 other collections in addition to this one (which has coordinating paper plates & dessert plates too).
