An invitation that I created for my Thanksgiving dinner this year.

It includes a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
"For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends."

This invitation features multiple layers of silk leaves in the warm shades of autumn. Backed with a handmade paper in a rich chocolate color, topped with a cardstock with hand torn deckle edges.
Please contact me for pricing.

5) "From our family to your family...
We hope you have a
wonderful Thanksgiving this year"

6) To family and friends we hold so dear
We want to share our bounty this year
At a special gathering to stay in touch
To count the blessings that mean so much

7) "Please be our guests on Thanksgiving Day
for feasting, reminiscing

For something a little silly:

After the Thanksgiving feast,
our bellies will Wobble, Wobble!
