Thanksgiving Celebration

Yesterday we made preparations for our Thanksgiving celebration with Thanksgiving coloring pages.  Today we are hosting a Thanksgiving party using what created!  Our party is inspired by our friends at Country Crock.

First, we made Pilgrim Mice!

This recipe is on the Country Crock website under the name “Veggie Pets”.

We steamed our potatoes:

And then used sugar snap peas, rosemary, and corn to create the sweet little mice faces.

I used a toothpick to create small slits and holes in the potatoes so that the corn and peas would stay in the proper location.  To make these pilgrim mice, I added mushroom caps as pilgrim hats.

Set the Thanksgiving Table

We used the printable Thanksgiving coloring page placemats, name cards and napkin rings to set our little table.

Next we added Thanksgiving food {including our sweet pilgrim mice}, drinks and three boys.

Now, THAT is a party!

Our Thanksgiving table was decorated with the printables we made and colored.

Rhett(6) found a good reason to use a napkin ring.  Since his usual napkin preference is his shirt sleeve, he was thrilled to find that if you kept the napkin ON the napkin ring, it created a napkin mitten that is great for wiping a laughing face.

What fun!

Thanks so much to Country Crock for sponsoring this post {and yesterday’s Thanksgiving Coloring Pages}.  It has been a ton of fun celebrating!  All opinions expressed are my own.
