Is there a childhood favorite memory you have during the holidays? A favorite dish, saying, or just sharing stories about those times. For me it was my Maw-Maw’s potato salad a simple recipe that I have the honor of passing down to my kids. I even inherited the bowl, it was always served in – for which I now serve to my family during holidays. It is my way to give thanks to her!
Here are a few more ideas to honor those who are and aren’t with us and just feel the joy you did when you were young.
Love this idea, photographs of family integrated in the centerpiece, with a pear as the place holder….
These napkin rings will inspire a look down memory lane and serve as place markers too.
If you want to make a new tradition, why not try this idea from One Charming party. Place cards where the guest writes what they are thankful wouldn’t it be fun to now see what you would have written when you were little.
Another new idea for a Thanksgiving tradition with trivia quizzes that will have your family members laughing and reminiscing.
