When Deanna Talwalkar of Mirabelle Creations decided to throw an Eat, Drink, and Be Grateful-themed Fall party for friends big and small, she knew the kids' table needed to be something special. And what she came up with has us totally excited to create an equally amazing kids' table at our own Thanksgiving feast.
"Even though the kids' table incorporates the same colors and patterns, it's not just a pint-sized version of the adult table," Deanna says. "Fun touches at each place setting will keep the kids busy throughout Thanksgiving dinner. Owl coloring pages serve as place mats. Beside each plate, there are crayons and a little composition notebook. Napkins are tied with a paper leaf and mini acorn owl made using felt." The best part about Deanna's table is that all the printable elements are now available in her shop, making at least one part of your Thanksgiving prep super easy! Keep clicking to check out all the kids' table awesomeness.

There's nothing cuter than a fluffy kitten or a floppy-eared pup, but senior pets are special in their own way. They've been by your side for years and years, are worn in all the right places, and are seriously loyal. November is Adopt Senior Pet Month, which makes Dogs with Old Man Faces: Portraits of Crotchety Canines by Tom Cohen the perfect coffee table book or gift for your favorite dog-lover this holiday season.
As a comedy writer, Cohen pairs pictures of senior pups with crotchety phrases, capturing the essence of old dogs. And, of course, he takes a little liberty with creating backstories for the featured furry friends. It's hard not to chuckle while flipping through the book and reading phrases such as, "Pedro likes Old Spice and Sinatra," "Jack enjoys a hot cup of Sanka," and "Chet is still upset they cancelled Matlock."
Pick up a copy of Dogs with Old Man Faces: Portraits of Crotchety Canines ($14) as a fun gift for any animal-loving friend or keep for yourself to enjoy over and over.
Just like that, Halloween may have come and gone, but for many families, the celebration still continues. Throughout Latin America and in many places here in the US, Day of the Dead takes place Nov. 1 and 2, and is a beautiful tradition that remembers loved ones who have passed on.
Instead of being a sad day, Día de Muertos is full of life and happiness, bright colors, and plenty of family time to share stories and memories. Skulls and skeletons are the traditional symbols, but they're often depicted hugging or dancing.
So while "dead" isn't something we typically want our kids to hear, consider this an exception, and use it as a chance to talk to them about family members they may not have even met.
Ahead, find four ways to celebrate the holiday your own way.
