yummy thanksgiving place-cards.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

I know I am too late to inspire my Canadian friends this year, but you Americans still have a month to think about pretty-ing up your thanksgiving table.  I don't usually go overboard.  Last year I gathered twigs and hot-glued them together as a stand for very simple place-cards. This year, I was in the mood for something yummier:

happy thanksgiving!


Pumpkin cookies, matching stamps and some washi tape.   It's a simple design, but I didn't want to make anything fussy or very time-consuming this year.

happy thanksgiving!

For the stamped pumpkins, I computer-generated the names and used lawn fawn stamps and dies (click here!)

happy thanksgiving!

My cookies are so simple.  But I'm thrilled at how much cleaner my piping looks!  I tried out some texture on a few of them, but made this simple version for most of them.  My friend Marlyn (Montreal Confections) taught me everything I know so far - here's the tutorial for how to make the royal icing:



We have so much to be thankful for this year!  Cheers to counting our blessings, and stuffing our faces full of turkey, sweet potatoes and apple pie.

  8. Oh, these are so fabulous, Elena! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
    I have a question though.... how did you make the sections on your pumpkin cookies? I have some baked and in the freezer, but I want to ice them next week for the pumpkin party I'm hosting for my Sunday School class....
