Thanksgiving Day GIVEAWAY!!

Do you notice that, for the most part, all holidays and celebrations revolve around food? Valentine's Day is all about the chocolate, birthdays are centered around a cake, and Thanksgiving is all about wearing your "eatin' pants" so you can fit all that yummy food in your belly! But really, what's better than food? What can make your turkey shine? Your stuffing more amazing? Your pumpkin pie the center of attention??


Presenting your food in a trendy and fun way can make even the most simplest of meals seem elegant and festive. Who cares if you burned the turkey a bit or if your mashed potatoes are a little dry (okay, I care, but anyway...) you can make this Thanksgiving so festive, the your guests will forgive you (just this once). How you ask? Well my friends, I'm here to tell you.

Our friends over at Creative Juice are amazing (aaaah-mazing!) at putting events together. They know all the latest trends, tricks, and tutorials to make your next party or event the talk of the next PTA meeting (which is a big deal where I come from!). And the girls at Creative Juice have been so nice to offer one lucky fan of Girls In Aprons a FREE printable of their Thanksgiving Printables Packet! This takes all the guess work out of planning your Thanksgiving table.

The packet includes triangle letters and designs for a banner (it will spell out "Give Thanks"), place cards, napkin/bottle wrappers, dessert of favor circles (to place on cupcakes, or that dollop of whipped cream, or whatever your imagination comes up with!), conversation starter cards (because you know you want to know what everyone is thankful for!), and an 8x10 print to frame for your home. And the best part is that you can reuse this all next Thanksgiving too!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this print -  you frame it however you want, and then use a dry erase marker to write things you are thankful for every day until Turkey Day. Or have your guests leave a comment as they come in to eat!

To enter the giveaway you must do these things (it will literally take you a few minutes!!):

1. Go to and follow their blog. It's easy to do and (the best part!!) you will keep updated on their amazing ideas for your next party! Following a blog does not fill up your email, it keeps you posted on new blog updates on your blog reader through Blogger.

2. "Like" Creative Juice on Facebook
