Decorate to Celebrate #63 - Halloween/Fall Party Part 1

Happy Wednesday!! It's time for a new challenge at Decorate to Celebrate!! For Challenge #63, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a Halloween/Fall Party. Let's celebrate everything wonderful about turkeys, pilgrims, family, being thankful and more with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more :)


For my Thanksgiving party, I created place settings for the dinner table :)


The place cards were created with Spellbinders Card Creator Basics A dies and Kraft paper, inked with Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. The next layer is a Spellbinders Fancy Weave die, cut with heavyweight cardstock from Canvas Corp. A layer of burlap was added to the middle, then another Card Creator Basics A die, inked with TH Fired Brick Distress Ink. Thankful and Blessings are from K Andrew Designs Fall-O-Ween stamp set, inked with Versafine Onyx ink.


The leaves are Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaves dies, inked with a mixture of Peeled Paint, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Inks. The acorn is a TH Autumn Gatherings die, cut in cork. Twine was added for more rustic texture.


For the name cards, the medium size of the Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaf dies, inked with the same four Distress inks. The 20 gauge wire was added to hold the name of the person when the table is set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
  3. DL.Art - October Anything Goes Linky 
  4. Sunday Funday #14 - Anything Goes 
  5. Just B Creative Crazy - October Linky
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Thanksgiving/Fall project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

  20. My sweetest friend, your Thanksgiving table will be bursting with harvest splendor! :o) These are absolutely marvelous. I truly love that you used Thankful and Blessings... there really aren't more appropriate tidings for this special celebration. The lattice/fancy weave is gorgeous and I continue to be enamored with your inking... the leaves are sheer perfection. :o) There's not a single project from you that doesn't contain at least one (and up to a billion) special touches... for this one, I particularly love that you used cork for the acorns. How brilliant! Stunning creations as always, my dear Lisa! I hope you're having a beautiful night. :o)
