In all of this talk about Christmas gifts and Cyber Week, holiday plans, and tree trimming, it’s easy for Thanksgiving to get overlooked. But it certainly shouldn’t be — it’s one of our very favorite holidays! There’s simply nothing better than a day to focus on being grateful, surrounded by loved ones, and sharing a meal. As you prepare your heart and home to celebrate this year, we wanted to share our most popular Thanksgiving posts. From meaningful traditions, simple crafts, and beautiful table inspiration, there’s something for everyone — guests and hosts alike!
Thanksgiving Traditions that Don’t Cost a Thing
Simple is always best, and this post is no exception. Years ago, we compiled a list of our favorite, meaningful family traditions for Thanksgiving — and they still hold true! Children never expect elaborate or perfection, only your presence. Whether your children are young or grown, it’s not too late to start a new tradition together!
Making Thanksgiving Memorable
From a beautiful tablescape to darling Thanksgiving gifts for children, this post is filled to the brim with inspiration! But the best part may be our list of Thanksgiving traditions and activities — from game night to nature walks and family photos! — that the whole family can get in on.
Classic Thanksgiving Books for Children
This round up of classic Thanksgiving tales is filled with books that are sure to become family favorites, whether your children (or grandchildren) are young are old. Start a tradition this year to read The Thanksgiving Story or another age-appropriate book — these are such a fantastic way to discuss God’s faithfulness with children of all ages!
A Delicious & Elegant Thanksgiving Dessert
Joy + Oliver joined us to create a beautiful dessert: Caramel Dipped Pears! These would be lovely at a place setting to greet guests as they sit down to eat, or served as a compliment to an array of pies. This post has so many delicious dessert recipes, that it’ll be hard to choose just one!
