I ‘m super excited that Thanksgiving is just a few days away. I’m heading back to San Francisco tomorrow morning to spend time with my brother for the holiday break. I have yet to pack and am far from ready so I’m going to keep this post short and sweet.
I made a Thanksgiving cookie platter inspired by the great Callye at The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle. I loved this Thanksgiving set she made, especially the color palette of her indian corn. The blue amongst all those fall colors is really striking and became my inspiration for this set.
I replicated her Indian corn cookie with just a slight twist. I also did typography on a plaque and added a fall leave wreath.
Here are silhouettes of a pilgrim and a Native American. Silhouettes are great when you’re pressed for time. You don’t have to fuss with facial details or mix more than one color; the result is simple yet elegant.
Now, the following two are my favorites of the set. I wanted this Thanksgiving set to seem more “grown up” so I avoided doing a cartoon-like turkey and kept it more realistic. Although, I think I contradicted myself with the Mayflower ship cookie; it’s a little on the cartoony side. (I was never good at seeming “grown up”.) Nonetheless, I loved how it turned out.
Well that’s it for me this week. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. And, if you decide to venture out for the Black Friday sales, keep it safe. I’d hate to see fights over $2 waffle irons on the News again this year. Oh FYI, when I fly back to Seattle I’ll be in total Christmas beast mode, so get ready.
