Get Your DIY on: Set the Table {& Features!}

Hi friends! It’ time to get your DIY on again.  Last week’s challenge proved to be a tough one.  Who knew holiday signs would be so hard? It’s hard to follow furntiure revival week for sure. (I’m still drooling over all those delicious furniture makeovers!) Thank you to everyone who did link up with us! There were some amazing projects shared.

We each chose two favorites this week. I picked one to represent each holiday.

First up is this DIY Thankful Art shared by Katie at View from the Fridge. I love this saying and she presented it perfectly.

For my Christmas pick, I chose this tall Christmas Sign by the talented girls at Two it Yourself. This would look great on the porch to greet holiday guests.

Now let’s move on to this week’s theme: Set the Table

Don’t let this week intimidate you! It doesn’t have to be a whole table setting.  Think anything that has to do with tables. Chair covers, center pieces, place cards, place mats, runners, table cloths and if you feel up for it, link up the whole table.  It’s all up to you!

Here are my and my co-host’s projects:

  1. Hi Christy! Thanks so much for the shout out! I love, love, love your pilgrim place cards. They make me smile everytime I see them. I would love to do something like that with my friends or immediate family. Thanks again for hosting these parties! Really, they are my inspiration to finish up projects I’ve started (or projects I’ve been pinning). You guys really should continue the party after Christmas … 🙂

    Thanks again! Happy Thanksgiving!

    • You’re so welcome, Katie! I love your sign! My family got a kick out of those place cards and everyone took theirs home to keep! As for the party, we’re thinking about keeping it going, but on a monthly basis. Stay tuned for details, these challenges keep me going too! Thanks for following along with us 🙂

  2. What a fun time of year this is and I am so excited to see all of the incredible ideas and decors that everyone has to share. Thank you to all of you wonderful girls for hosting and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
