This year we are hosting Thanksgiving at our house and I’m really excited. Hosting friends and family is something I love to do. These buffet table food signs are a great way to let everyone know the name of each dish.
We are a big family who loves casual dining. This means no fancy table settings but paper plates instead. I love a beautiful table setting and I do set it up for a few dinners for just the four of us but for a crowd this big I always go casual. Ray and I both have 4 siblings so gatherings are always large. I don’t mind it at all though, it’s something I very thankful for.
I found the canvas and mini easels at my local Walmart in the craft section. This was a very simple and inexpensive project I completed in one afternoon. The weather has been very mild recently so I was able to spray paint these outside and have them dried in no time.
I grow rosemary in my back yard and I love the way it smells. I clipped off a few pieces for each mini easel and attached it with some yarn. Twine would have been nice too if you want to make it into a bow and have it show. I didn’t necessarily want mine to show so I just used yarn I already had. Be sure to tie it in the middle of the leg in order for the rosemary not to be too top heavy.
After I tied the knot I snipped off the longer strings with scissors. Once I placed the canvas on the easel the yarn would be hidden.
If you notice I spray paint my canvas with black spray paint. Then I used white card stock paper to write the menu items on.I then used double stick tape to put it on the canvas. I did this so I would be able to reuse them. You could certainly write directly onto the canvas if you prefer.
I hope my sister in law is reading this…I want your mac and cheese for thanksgiving!
I hope you all know how thankful I am for you and the support you show me here in the little space of the internet. I hope you have a great week!
