FREE Thanksgiving Give Thanks Cards + Dessert Idea

Thanksgiving is coming up quick and it's one of my favorite holidays of the year because it's a whole day devoted to just giving thanks for what we have and not want we want. It's a day to spend with the people who matter and to be thankful for them. It's a day to reflect on what you have been blessed with over the course of the year and realize just how lucky you are. It's a day to focus on telling people just how thankful you are to have them in your life. It's a day to just give thanks!

I love the holiday season, I love Thanksgiving and I like to keep it simple, if I can. The holidays are already so hectic and busy so it can make you feel rushed if you let it. So one way I like to slow things down a bit and not put so much pressure on myself, is to simplify and find ways to make any gathering feel special, with minimal effort. I love to set a table using things I already have around the house mixed in with maybe one new thing, to make all of the older stuff feel fresh again.

For this Thanksgiving dessert table idea I wanted to focus on a fun way to celebrate with a new dessert idea. We all know we are going to have turkey and all the fixings represented at Thanksgiving and most of us know we will have the traditional pumpkin pie dessert as well but what about something a little bit different and a little bit fun for dessert this year! That's where
Cold Stone Creamery comes into play for this simple dessert table set up, starting a new tradition and adding a fun dessert  to the mix!


  • My color palette always gets chosen first when I set up a table and I usually will base my color choices off the main food or dessert item. So when I picked up this pie, I knew I wanted to add copper into this mix along with some of the earth tones from the color of the pie.
  • For the background, I wanted the main focus to be this amazing 'thankful' sign I picked up this fall so I sat it on some small crates, put a few pumpkins around it and laid some flowers around the base. A small cake stand holds some fruit I painted, to add copper fruit accents to the mix. If you ever want to change up your decor in a minute, simply paint it to give it a whole new look! To make the background 'pop', I added a couple accordian fans to complete the look!

  • On the table, I used a runner down the center, added place mats at each place setting, then placed a paper plaid napkin for some color under white dessert plates. I topped each plate with a fork holding the 'Give Thanks' cards that you can download for free, along with a copper hand lettered place card and a coffee mug or copper mule mug with water.
  • For the dessert centerpiece, we have this pumpkin ice cream pie from Cold Stone Creamery and doesn't that just sound fabulous? Well it is, as it's pumpkin ice cream in a graham cracker pie crust, topped with cinnamon frosting and chocolate leaves. This is WHY Cold Stone is a fave in my house and it seems like we are always adding it to our celebrations! I love partnering up with my friends at Cold Stone Creamery and it's because we LOVE them and they always come up with the most delicious desserts for the holidays! The best part of getting these, is how simple it is to get . . .  I just order online at ColdStoneCakes.com and then run over and pick it up! It really could not be easier and the leftovers on dessert is the best, right? ;) So go ahead and have all of the 'usual' desserts you like to have for Thanksgiving . . . all I am saying is ADD this to the mix too because everyone likes ice cream and everyone likes pie, so why not have an ice cream pie too?! ;)

As I mentioned, I designed all of you a hand lettered FREEBIE for you to download, so you can use it at your Thanksgiving celebrations this year. The 'Give Thanks' hand lettered cards are perfect to have at each place setting, gathered on a table or placed out with the desserts so everyone has a chance to write down what they 'give thanks' for this year! It's very simple to download, simply click on this FREE 'Give Thanks' thanksgiving cards link, print, then cut them out and you are ready to go.

So go ahead and print this off right now and make sure to visit Cold Stone Creamery to order your Thanksgiving day ice cream pie and then you are that much closer to being ready for Thanksgiving! Enjoy my friends!
