My amazingly talented friend Susan came up with a great idea using her Christmas tree as a Grateful Tree during the month of November.
A simple a fun tradition that takes you right into Christmas. She sets up her artificial Christmas tree then decorates it with fall items and grateful words on tags. These tags can be printed off for free at Bloom Designs Online. Then on Thanksgiving day during the big thankful meal she will remove the tags from the tree, ask her family and guest to write on the back of them what they are Thankful for and return them to the tree until she is ready to switch to her Christmas decorations.
