10/31 | Thanksgiving Table Spread


Hey everyone! I am so excited to share this year’s Thanksgiving Table Spread with you all. Last year for Friendsgiving we designed a table for our party that our guests went nuts over. It was bright, simplistic, and our menu was definitely out of the ordinary. This year we challenged ourselves to take our table spread to another level, and make it a lot more elegant.

Do you all think we accomplished our goal? I think this table spread is amazing. I love the colors we chose, the food we picked, and of course our amazing DIY Cricut projects that tie it all together. I’m going to show you guys how pulled off our Thanksgiving Table Spread, along with tutorials of all the great Cricut crafts we made. Let’s get started!

DIY Felt Leaf Silverware Holders

This was such an easy project but it added a great touch of fall to our table. We chose a very light brown, almost cream colored felt and the warm tones looked great with our other pops of color. All you really need for this one is your Cricut Maker, and the felt. You don’t have to do any work, which is what we love most about the Cricut!

Step 1. Size your leaf in Design Space to fit your silverware well.

Step 2. Load the felt onto your FabricGrip Mat and let the Cricut do the work!

Step 3. Once your leaves have been cut, simply pull them from the mat and add your silverware. How simple is that?

Iron-On Burlap Table Runner

Nothing is more fall than burlap, so naturally, we had to go with a burlap table runner! Luckily we found a role that was the perfect size for our table, but we wanted to take it a step further. We decided to add our favorite White Cricut Iron-On to the end of the runner. It really took the runner from good to great, and it adds a nice touch of fall personality.

Step 1. Measure your roll of burlap and size your word in Design Space to make sure it will fit on your table runner well.

Step 2. Load the LightGrip Mat with white Iron-On and let the Cricut do the work!

Step 3. Once it’s finished cutting, before you weed your project it’s a good time to preheat your EasyPress. Once you’re finished, lay your burlap table runner over the EasyPress Mat where you’d like your word to go.

Step 4. Take your EasyPress and adhere it onto your table runner. Peel off the transfer sheet to reveal your beautiful work!

Easy Place Cards

Nothing is quite as easy as adding Cricut vinyl to a project. It’s also a great way to add style and elegance to something like a chalkboard place card. No one wants to hand write place cards, especially when you have the Cricut that can do you one better. I’ve said it so many times, but the Cricut really does eliminate so much work that we would otherwise have to do. I love how these place cards turned out, thanks to our Cricut Maker and trusty white Vinyl.


Step 1. Like all of these projects, make sure you measure your product and size it in Cricut Design Space to ensure it will it well on the surface our using!

Step 2. Let the Cricut do the work, then carefully weed around all of your names.

Step 3. Add Cricut Transfer Paper to your weeded names and use your  Cricut Scraper Tool to adhere the vinyl onto the transfer paper.

Step 4. Section and cut the names with your Cricut TrueControl Knife. Remove the backing, and adhere each name onto your place cards.

I wish I could tell you my favorite part about this table spread, but I just love everything so much. The pumpkin candles, the caramel apples, the Iron-On table runner, I can’t pick a favorite! All our guests loved the felt leaf silverware holders, and we let them take home their place cards because they were too darn cute. Who knew they could double as favors?

I can’t wait to hear some feedback from you all, be sure to let us know how you like the tablescape! We had a blast planning, crafting, and executing our ideas in this year’s Thanksgiving Table Spread. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we all do!
