i was just thinking about thanksgiving and mil's table..hmmmmmmmm yep a drop cloth would fit it since she has a long table..kind of plain..well not any more make a family heirloom out of it....since family doesn't gather as often as they should..let's make some more memories........i was reading about someone doing handprints and making turkeys on it..well go a step further and put sayings or notes or quotes, draw etc............what a fun thing for all of us to do. make our lasting mark..get some paint pens or thick sharpies and make a family new tradition............what a memory of a table cloth.........keep adding to it year after year........since drop cloths are a canvas beige material u could really have alot of space to draw on it..or even make the turkeys..see how the family grows........ooh i wish i would have had this idea a few years back...........what a neat thing to do for the reunion........everyone sign the drop cloth table cloth.....................i love making heirloom memories....... Dance Dance

(drop cloth is in the paint section of a hardware store a large canvas material)

That reminds me of one table I seen at a friend of a friend's house. She had an older kitchen table but she dec'ed it out and had her kids handprints go around the table edges. It turned out very nice and was certainly a talking point. I tried to get my husband to think about doing that with our table but he wasn't too keen on the idea.

that is a great idea ..... oh and dutch another neat table like the one you are talking about is my friends mom made this really neat table for her kids room, on their birthday they had the kids color a bunch of stuff and do the handprints and write there name on it then put on a small wood table and plexi glass over it

we do a twist in a sort.. In my family on my grandmothers side we have a huge quilt at each reunion it comes out and it's so much fun finding what i have written/drawn in the past as well as other family members.

i bet the quilt is unique.........love that idea too. for any occassion great for birthday parties too..kewl beans........
hmmm even transfer old photo (copies) onto a large tablecloth..u can find that transfer stuff in the craft sections........

u could also make some burlap placemats and put ruffles around the drop cloth as to not be so plain....
