This lovely RUSTIC OWL THANKSGIVING PARTY was submitted by Deanna Talwalkar of Mirabelle Creations! Such a beautiful party with so many wonderful ideas! The best part- the printable place cards, coloring sheets, leaves, and owl utensil holders can be downloaded for FREE here {the links are at the bottom of the post}!

Here is what Deanna had to say about planning the party- “{Dessert Table} We have a fall landscape painting by local artist, David Farmer, hanging in our living room. I’ve always envisioned a Thanksgiving dessert table set up beneath this beautiful painting. Since I wanted the painting to be the focus of the table, I kept most of the other decorations simple. And, like the painting, the desserts are rustic with just a little touch of glam.

For the desserts, I made a rustic Pumpkin Stack Cake. The Cake is a modern update to the classic Appalachian Apple Stack Cake (a rustic staple from Kentucky). It is made with pumpkin flavored cake and pumpkin butter between the many layers. It is served with cinnamon whipped cream. The dessert table also includes Maple Crème Cookies, Mini Apple Blueberry Pies, Pumpkin Pie, and Caramel Apples. I packaged extra Pumpkin Butter in mason jars to send home with all of the guests.

Although the painting is the focus of the table, I used a few other items to style the table. A gold pumpkin, gold acorns, a printable sign, and burlap cake stand flower also add rustic touches to the design.

{Thanksgiving Place Setting} The adult table place setting keeps with the rustic, glam look. The table is covered with burlap with a gold table runner down the center. Instead of a large centerpiece, red garden roses in small vases and mason jars decorated with gold paint sit down the center of the table. Spray painted ceramic turkeys and pumpkins embellish the table. A variety of red Spode plates sit atop woven charger plates. The napkins are tied with jute that was adorned with gold acorns.

{Kids Table} For the kids’ table, I first started by designing a printable collection which coordinates with the other printables. Even though the kids’ table incorporates the same colors and patterns, it’s not just a pint size version of the adult table. Fun touches at each place setting will keep the kids busy throughout Thanksgiving dinner. Owl coloring pages serve as place mats. Beside each plate, there are crayons and a little composition notebook that is covered with paper and a printable party circle. The kids can color on these items and on the craft paper that tops the table. The napkins are tied with a paper leaf and mini acorn owl made using felt.
