Thanksgiving Inspiration, Recipes, and Free Printables

It's hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  We are fortunate enough this year to be heading north for dinner with Brian's folks, who also invited my parental units.  Does the thought of that make you bite your nails and squirm in your seat?  I feel badly for those that might see that scenario as awkward and dread the thought of being with their parents.  For us, two sets of parents that we love and adore, and with whom we enjoy spending time, is quite a treat.  Karin, Brian's sister, is also flying in from Minnesota, so the day will be extra sweet with lots of family to share this grubbalicious holiday.

What do you have in the works for Thanksgiving this year?  Need a few ideas?

I found so many awesome Thanksgiving printables and inspiration in the past few weeks and wanted to share just a few with you.  Click the art images or the captions below the photos of your favorites, and you will get to where you need to go to get the goods!  Can you believe how generous some folks are?  I mean honestly!

Thank you, thank you kind fellow bloggers!  A big hallelujah for you!

  1. This was a great post! I wish I had a printer to print off all of those fabulous Thanksgiving art finds. Are they really all free?! You are great at event planning. You could be an event planner for sure.

  2. What a great collection for Thanksgiving! Our plans for the day include making a dessert to take to a family gathering, not too intense on our end. Then we have lots of family staying at our house the next few days (more intense on our end!), with many fun things planned. Thanks so much for including me in your Thanksgiving inspiration! Wishing you a very blessed time with your family.
