Last-Minute Colorful Thanksgiving Ideas

As you probably know, I had a baby this year and things have gotten super hectic! I don’t really have tons of time for Thanksgiving blog posts (or projects!) which makes me super sad. However, snuggling this little baby takes some of that pain away ;) Since I’ve been blogging for a few years now, I’ve accumulated quite a few Thanksgiving blog posts, so I figured this year I can do a roundup for you with some great colorful Thanksgiving ideas! You can go back in time to the very first Thanksgiving (or… back to 2016 to Party HarDIY’s first Thanksgiving) and see some really fun ideas to take your Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving) to the next level!
