I’m sharing these fun Thanksgiving recipes and table settings with you again (originally published Nov. 17, 2016).
I wanted to share with you my Turkey Cookies, Thanksgiving Place Cards and Sunflower Candy Dishes that I made to get ready for Thanksgiving. I shopped for Thanksgiving recipe ingredients, home décor and serving dishes at Family Dollar and saved $6.50 by using Smart Coupons.

I also browsed the Weekly Deals at Family Dollar to see the price drops and help me make my shopping list. I was impressed with the selection of Thanksgiving décor, serving ware and candy.

I had a blast making Turkey Cookies from Nutter Butter cookies and Golden OREOs. They are easy to make and your kids can help make them! This is an “assembly only” recipe, so no baking is involved! Here are the instructions to make them:
- Golden OREO cookies
- Nutter Butter cookies
- Reese’s Pieces
- Candy Eyes
- Candy Corn
- Orange Frosting
- Red Frosting
- White Frosting
Step 1 – Secure the Golden OREO cookie to the Nutter Butter cookie with a generous dab of white frosting so that the top of the Nutter Butter cookie touches the middle of the Golden OREO cookie
Step 2 – Secure both eyes to the Nutter Butter cookie using a very small dab of white frosting
Step 3 – Secure one orange Reese’s Pieces with orange frosting below the eyes
Step 4 – Apply red frosting for the turkey gizzard using a Wilton 16 frosting tip (small star shaped)
Step 5 – Secure 5 candy corns to the Golden OREO for feathers by applying a dab of white frosting to the yellow tip of each candy corn
Step 6 – Let your Turkey Cookies set to dry for at least an hour to secure all the pieces to the cookies
Next I made Thanksgiving Place Cards for our table setting. I found these adorable toothpick holders and I knew I could easily turn them into Thanksgiving Place Cards. I loved that I could get different ones for different people. Here are the instructions on how to make them:
THANKSGIVING PLACE CARDS
- Thanksgiving Toothpick Holders
- Plastic Pencil Grips (or small pieces of foam)
- Black Chalkboard Stickers
- Orange Cardstock
- White Chalk
- Tootsie Pops
Step 1 – Write names with white chalk on the black chalkboard stickers
Step 2 – Place stickers on orange cardstock and then cut around them
Step 3 – Secure names to Tootsie Pop with a long piece of tape
Step 4 – Stick a plastic pencil grip (or small piece of foam) inside an empty Thanksgiving Toothpick Holder
Step 5 – Place Tootsie Pop inside plastic pencil grip (or stick into small piece of foam) and then tape so the Tootsie Pop will not rotate
Step 6 – Set at each place setting for your Thanksgiving Table so everyone knows where they are sitting
While I was shopping at Family Dollar, I also picked up these fall leaf tealight candle holders. I made them into Thanksgiving Candy Dishes by placing lemon drops in them with one whopper in the middle. They remind me of my favorite flower, a sunflower, and it’s a nice sweet treat for your Thanksgiving guests.
I love the serving dishes they have at Family Dollar for Thanksgiving. I bought turkey and pumpkin serving dishes for my Thanksgiving Table at super affordable prices.
Here’s what my Thanksgiving Place Setting looks like. I liked putting the Turkey Cookie on the dinner plate, the Thanksgiving Place Card near the glass and the Thanksgiving Candy Dish near the salad plate. In the background you can see my DIY Fall Centerpiece that I made with home décor I found at Family Dollar.
Remember to clip your Smart Coupons for Family Dollar so you’re ready to save money too! All you have to do to apply your coupons to your purchase is to enter your phone number into the keypad at the register. It’s a smart money-saving move to help you prepare for Thanksgiving!
