I love creating scenes that remind me of my favorite things! Instead of creating a traditional Thanksgiving scene, I decided to make a scene of getting ready for the big dinner. I can imagine the smell of the turkey and pies and it reminds me of family and time spent together during the holidays.
Here are the minis I used for this scene:
- 5-piece Saybrook Dining Set
- Hudson Hutch
- 4 All-Purpose Glasses
- 40-piece Table Setting
- Carving Knife & Fork Set
- Glass Cake Stand
- Pumpkins/Gourds & Basket
To start, I wanted to build the scene in something that I’d use for Thanksgiving. I decided to use this roll basket and I love how it turned out!
I added Fall-colored raffia to the top, sides, and base of the basket and on the top of the hutch.
Prepping the table can be such a fun part of Thanksgiving, or any other big dinner. I love this tiny carving knife and fork – so darling! The tiny dishes are set out, all ready to be organized. Check out this mini formal setting.
I’ve never actually owned a cake platter but I’ve always wanted one. This mini one is so dang cute!
One of my favorite traditions is making either a gratitude tree or a gratitude wreath. They’re wonderful to display and are such a great way to think of all the things you’re grateful for. I used my Cricut to make these leaves using the cut file I use for the full size ones. I just shrunk it down tiny and they turned out great! There’s also a free printable if you want to make your own.
These tiny words were really hard to write.
I love the details on this carving set – they’re perfect!
This set of table and chairs were exactly what I wanted for this scene. They’re so well made and everything lines up perfectly!
I used mini burlap for the tablecloth. It can be found at craft stores in the scrapbook paper section.
This hutch is one of my favorite minis ever! I love the tiny drawer, doors, and windows. It comes unfinished and I considered painting it but I really love the wood look.
I lined up the silverware, ready to go on the table. They’re so tiny!
The hutch is stocked and ready! The tiny teacups and saucers make me want to throw a tea party. I made the napkins using ribbon and my flat iron (they’re not just for hair, right?).
I love how it all came together!
