A Personalized Thanksgiving

The amazing gals that make up Anders Ruff are at it again! This time they have mastered a thanksgiving get-together and their designs are going to make you feel even more grateful than you already are!  
Every family celebrates Thanksgiving in their own special way but these tips from Anders Ruff are sure to make your meal more memorable:
Pick a few elements to carry out throughout the entire event.  Whether it be a particular harvest or a strict color scheme.  In this setup, they carries “harvest” tones throughout.
Dressing up your everyday dishes with a custom fabric charger gives a dramatic effect with out breaking the bank.  We used cardboard cake rounds to measure perfect circles and placed them on the table to add dimension.  

To create dimension, wrap carious sized boxes to co-ordinate.  Anders Ruff used simple craft paper to cover the boxes and made a corresponding table runner. 
Backdrops are a great way to transform your room for a thanksgiving feast.  Find fabric at a local fabric store and cover a large canvas or duct board to create a dessert or food buffet backdrop. Ask your guests to fill out “I am Thankful” cards and clip them on to twine using clothespins to add to the display. 
Wrap traditional canning jars in the drink wrap from the Anders Ruff Collection.  Use them as drinking glasses and they will be “kid-safe” too!
Think of new ways to display your place cards at the table.  We utilized sugarcane because it fit within our color and harvest scheme and made the perfect card holder from the Anders Ruff collection!
Line your basic white serving trays with pantry items such as coffee beans, split peas, black eyed peas and pinto beans.  

Be sure to order your Harvest Printable Design Collection to help orchestrate a beautiful and memorable fall table.  The Printable Design Collection includes:

Here are Anders Ruff suggestions for using the graphics:
The folding label designs can be used for place cards, name tags, food labels, beverage description labels. They are an excellent way to make your dessert or food buffet stand out. Flag labels are great for toothpicks for food, straws and cinnamon sticks. Wrap designs are wonderful to dress up any sauce, glass, water bottle wrap or adult beverage glass. Our 2″ party logos are great for everything from cupcake toppers, toothpick toppers, labels, stickers, lunch bag seals, treat bag seals, favor tags, napkin ring stickers.  “I am thankful for” cards are great for the guests to personalize. Patterned papers can be used like scrapbook paper for wrapping small favors, lining trays and serving dishes, decorating, banners and the list goes on!
