Thanksgiving Celebration Ideas?

May 30, 2008

Thanksgiving CelebrationMy church is having a Thanksgiving tea in November. This will be our 2nd thanksgiving tea. We had different color table last year and we had a lady to speak on "Oh Give Thanks". I would like some more ideas of what different things we can do. We did have a dinner. The donation was $10.00. What kind of decorations should I have? What kind of food should I serve? If you have any ideas what I should do I'm asking for help. Thank You. Please let me know soon.


May God Bless You.

Have them pick out a Thanksgiving song from their church hymn book then decorate according to song on each table. Example: We give Thanks - decorate with Praying Hands and fall flowers. How Great Thou Art - decorate with Water Fountains, hide the cords under fall foliage or use fall leaves and fall decorations.

Floating cranberries in a clear glass dish, maybe with a candle in the center would be pretty. I love to decorate for that time of year!
Good luck!

I would put a fake check, oversize and pretty, at each place setting: signed by God, made out to the order of 'my beloved child', with the denomination to be "In Blood", you get the idea. You could make something like that on your computer.

Thank you Gale,Lancaster,KY
Your ideal was great. I'm going to tell the pastor aid at my church. And I know that they will like the the ideal. If you have any more ideal please let me no.

Pumpkin and/or cranberry sweet breads would be great. Turkey roll-up sandwiches would be good, too.

I am looking for an activity similar to "I've been boo'd" for Thanksgiving. Has anyone ever done this before?

What is "I've Been Booed"?, other than a game. I have never heard of it.

I've not heard of a game like that for Thanksgiving. But after thinking about it I guess you could call it "I've Been Gobbled", and put the same things but with a Thanksgiving theme in the bags or baskets. The bags or baskets could be decorated like turkeys.


I think a poem went with the gift in "I've Been Booed", but I can't remember it, give me a few days to think about it and maybe come up with a poem and I'll post a comment again and share it.

You've been goobled!

The Thanksgiving Turkey has come to town
To leave some goodies, I see youve found.
If you wish to make this a happier fall
Continue this greeting, this phantom fall.

First, post this Turkey where it can be seen,
And leave it there but dont make a scene.
This will show other Phantoms who may happen to visit,
Be sure to participate, you dont want to miss it.

Second, if able, make two treats & copy this poem.
Deliver them to two other homes.
Dont let them see you, be sneaky, no doubt.


And make sure they put their Phantom Turkey out.

Leave it at doors where the Turkey hasn't hit,
Deliver at dark when there isn't much light,
Ring the doorbell and run and stay out of sight.

And last, but not least, come join in the season,
Dont worry, be happy, you need no good reason.
This is all in good fun and we are just trying to say,
Have a wonderfully Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Youve Been Gobbled!
Thanksgiving day is drawing near
A special time of thanks and cheer
Weve chosen you as our special friend
A great big GOBBLE to you we send


Under the light of harvest moon
Please gobble 2 others and do it soon
Then hang this sign where one could see
Before you get gobbed again and too tipsy
