Things to do around your Thanksgiving table:

1. All hold hands as someone says the blessing on the food.
2. Go around the table and have each person say something they are thankful for.


  • Have place cards with a quote inside and have each guest read theirs.
  • (See Thanksgiving Quotes for ideas)
  • Get clip-on candles that clip to the plate – light one saying what you are thankful for
    then light the next person’s candle. He says what he is thankful for then lights
    the next person’s candle, etc.
  • For a more amusing variation, do “I remember when...” and tell a funny story you
    remember about someone at the table (each person’s name should be written on
    a piece of paper and each guest draws a name and tells a story about that person).
  • Write a note to each of your guests telling each one what you like best about them. I like to type it on an antique looking paper, roll it like a scroll, tie it with ribbon and lay it on their plate.

“Thou hast given so much to us.
Give one thing more...A grateful heart.”
George Herbert

These are fabulous ideas. I have a feeling though if we were to do the "I remember when" portion the same embarassing stories would be told year, after year, after year....
