4 Fun & Easy Thanksgiving Table Ideas

November 20th, 2014


Believe it or not.…Thanksgiving is next week! You’ve probably thought about your yummy menu but don’t forget about your table decor to set the tone for your special meal. We’ve collected some great inspiration and Thanksgiving table ideas.


Make It Personal

Make your guests feel welcomed by including their initials or monogram on wooden stained letters. They are tied to white painted pumpkins with simple twine. What a simple and easy Thanksgiving table idea!


Keep It Casual

A potted mum in the center of the table makes a big statement but is inexpensive and simple. Add a few small pumpkins for more color and texture and your Thanksgiving table is ready!


Centerpiece with a Glow

fall table decoration


Gather your candles for an effortless Thanksgiving centerpiece. Candles provide an elegant and stylish solution when grouped together in varying heights. Use white china for a simple and clean look on a textured tablecloth for elegant and simple beauty.


Don’t Forget the Kids Table

We love this fun and simple Thanksgiving kids table idea. A simple wooden table is covered with butcher paper for doodling. You might draw on place mats or circles, like the photo, for the plate. A bunch of crayons add color and activity for hours while the adults have a nice (and hopefully) peaceful Thanksgiving meal.


These Kelly Hughes personalized place mats for your Thanksgiving kids table will be a big hit!  These would make a great take-home gift or save and use from year to year. Easy to clean, just wipe off.

We hope these ideas will help you with your Thanksgiving table decor this year. We’d love to hear any comments or suggestions that you have.

Let’s start with the “Thirsty Dad” which just means a Dad who likes to socialize. He’s the party dad, the one that likes to have friends over, and the life of the party.

They keep bottles and cans cool and are available in many patterns and colors.

Better Homes and Gardens

We love these Graduation Theme cupcakes! So easy to make and fun to eat and will work with any Graduation party theme. Just roll the edges in the color of choice, add a hat and tassel made from a chocolate covered cherry, chocolate covered cracker, small candy and fruit leather.

Oh My Creative

Sometimes it’s hard to come up with a theme for a boy grad, but this All Star Graduation Party by Pear Tree Greetings is a excellent one. Sports can be a significant part of high school or college for many students. Make the party personalized by using pictures of the grad and focus on their hobbies.  What a fun idea to have the party guests sign a shirt of his future college!

Spring – A Time for Change

April 10th, 2014

Announcing… Sugar NestSugar Nest logo

We are thrilled to announce our new brand – Sugar Nest. We know we need to change with the times, as hard as that is sometimes.

Karen Bullard founded Paperfancy in 2010 carrying mostly invitations and announcements. Over the years we’ve found that our customers want more home decor items and gifts. We will still carry some of our favorite high quality paper lines, such as Boatman Geller.

As you might know, Karen, with a background in interior design, has curated the Paperfancy collection. “We don’t carry every item from all of our designers. Our collection is hand-curated to best suit our clients’ tastes. We don’t want to inundate them with so much to wade through.” Karen says. She selects what she knows you’ll really love. That’s why we all shop online anyway – to save time.

Through Sugar Nest, we are excited to offer our customers a wider range of high quality products and look forward to debuting those with you.

Please rest assured the our ownership has not changed or our desire to give you the best customer service experience possible. We’d love to have your thoughts or any feedback.

We look forward to serving you as Sugar Nest in the near future!


The Sugar Nest team

P.S. A super BIG thanks to the creative team of Aeolidia for making this happen in their usual cool & professional way.

Easter Party Ideas We Love!

March 17th, 2014

With the snow coming down here in Virginia today it’s a little hard to think about Easter. This year Easter is Sunday, April 20th and now would be a great time to get preparations in order for your fun Easter parties. We’ve gathered some ideas to throw a beautiful and fun Easter celebration, perfect for kids and adults, because who doesn’t love Easter party ideas?

Easter party ideas


The first place to start in the planning process is to think about your Easter decorations. This simple do-it-yourself woodsy vase brings the outdoors in for a perfect Easter floral arrangement. To make cut 30 – 40 twigs to the height of your glass vase and hot glue them to the surface. Finish it with a simple but lovely twine bow.

Assembling the Queen Anne’s Lace and Hydrangeas is super easy too! First, bundle the Hydrangeas, then insert the Queen Anne’s Lace.

Easter party ideas


Easter Party Decorations are easy to come up with because the holiday is all about Spring and full of beautiful pastel colors, grasses, flowers, eggs — all things accessible and easy to decorate with. We just love this lucite Easter colored pink and green tray at Paperfancy and just know it would look like spring on your table with cupcakes or cocktails on it.

Easter party ideas


We love this sparkly Easter garland from Potterybarn Kids that would be adorable on your banister or across the mantle as shown, or anywhere in your home. Think natural and pastel when selecting Easter decorations for your Easter party.

Easter party ideas

We love when Easter party favors can double as decor and that’s just what these sweet little Easter basket favors do! Easily transform ordinary paper cups into favor baskets filled with chocolate bunnies and jelly beans. Your guest will love taking home a little piece of the party.

paper fancy easter party decorations

Setting up a “kids table” can be a great option for a big family dinner and these fun personalized placemats from Paperfancy are the perfect way to make the little one feel super special. Kids will love to see their name on the table and sitting at such a fun place setting will make trips to the grown up table less frequent. Once again, this adorable Easter party decoration doubles as a favor, which we love!


There are so many fun ideas for your Easter menu  that could easily pass for part of your Easter party decorations! These little cupcakes are the perfect example. Place these little beauties on a tiered cake plate and watch your guests ooh and aah!

These delectable cupcakes start with a cake mix and are a favorite for any gathering, especially Easter. Make an impression by creating little birds’ nests on top with malted milk ball easter eggs and edible paper (or colored coconut) as a garnish.

Most importantly, have fun at your Easter party and don’t forget the Easter egg hunt!
