*Thank you to maurices and ShopStyle for teaming up with us on this sponsored post; it’s a fun one! We invite you to discover maurices and try this easy Thanksgiving place-setting craft.
Thanksgiving is one of the greatest holidays of the year in my opinion because it revolves around 1) eating, and 2) family. No gifts to buy, no agenda to follow; just relaxation, camaraderie, and did I mention food? While Thanksgiving may be low-stress, it doesn’t mean it’s not a time to grandstand a little bit. In my family, everyone pulls out all the stops when it comes to cooking, decorating, and showing up dressed to impress.
We’ve got you covered on all of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes (have you tried Penny’s Perfect Pie Crust? It’s incredible!), a fun Thanksgiving table setting craft below, and some hot fall fashions from maurices that your pocketbook is going to love. You’re going to be all set this Thanksgiving.

When it comes to crafting, I’m all about easy and inexpensive. The same can be said about my style. I like pieces that flatter all the right places, feel good all day long, and make a put-together yet approachable statement. Girl next door meets fashionista. If you haven’t discovered maurices recently, you owe it to yourself to get reacquainted. I’ve found the cutest hoodies, jeans, tops, and boots all at an excellent price point. More about my fave maurices picks below, plus the tutorial to some easy pie slice boxes that look really cute on your Thanksgiving table.
DIY Pie Slice Boxes
I was looking for a cute way for guests to take a slice of pie home after Thanksgiving dinner. There were a few options online, but not enough time to ship before the big feast. So I went to the drawing board and decided to make my own using something that everyone has on hand: paper plates. These DIY pie slice boxes are easy to whip together the day before Thanksgiving and are the perfect vessels for those yummy pie slices.
You’ll need: paper plates, scissors, a hot glue gun, and string.
1. Create a triangle by folding the paper plate so that there is a triangle inside. Imagine a piece of pie fitting inside.
2. Cut a 1-inch slit at each of the three corners.
3. Make a bow-tie fold at each slit.
You should have three little bow-tie folds when you’re done.
4. Bring each side up and hot glue them together until you have a triangle-shaped container.
That’s it! Add a piece of pie and tie it together with string or butcher’s twine.
It really is such a simple Thanksgiving craft that adds a farmhouse flare to a tablescape and serves a practical purpose–a sweet take-home treat for your guests.
Easy, Chic Pieces from maurices
I always choose my Thanksgiving pants wisely, you know what I mean? Jeans with enough stretchhh, but that hug the curves just right. ‘Cause ain’t nobody want to have to unbutton that top button after turkey dinner.
I love the Everflex high rise black skinny jeans because I loved the buttons and the color. The fit wasn’t as tight as I was expecting so I would probably size down one size, but they have great stretch and flexibility. (Definitely great Thanksgiving pants!) The cuff was more like a boyfriend jean and I’ll probably roll them up.
maurices always has great promos on their jeans, so check in often.
When browsing maurices trendy shoe section, I immediately gravitated to their boots. I love the fur on them and the fit is perfect. Make sure to check maurices frequently as I’ve seen some GREAT promos on their boots and shoes!
