They are each different but incorporate the same ribbon to tie them all together!

I had some old brown kraft paper that came in a big package…I rolled it on as the tablecloth and threw on some crayons!

    What clever ideas, Kim! I love the ways in which you used buttons on your place cards and napkin rings. And the jumbo ric rac looks great on the jar; it could also be tied around half of the napkins, using jacquard ribbon for the rest.

    Thanks for sharing! xoxo

    This is so fun-a colorful alternative to the standard brown/orange/black Thanksgiving motif. Love it!
