With Halloween behind us, and the holidays on their way, Thanksgiving provides the perfect time to gather with those that matter most and count the many ways we are grateful. At Christina Feck Real Estate, we are so fortunate to partner with many amazing people. We know that there’s a lot for you and your family to be grateful for too (besides just an awesome fall real estate market) and we are full of some GREAT ideas and family activities for Thanksgiving.
Make a Craft
Easy, inexpensive and not a lot of steps! Not to mention all the possibilities for creativity when you add stickers and sparkles and who knows what else. Every pumpkin, like people, is unique in its own way
Fall Leaf Napkin Tags
So cute and fun to make, not to mention the fact that they don’t scream Thanksgiving so you can bring them out after Labor Day. In fact every day is a reason to celebrate so don’t wait for a holiday to pull out the fancy napkins!
