    I usually like to have a little something by each place setting on my table for Thanksgiving for each one of my guest for them to take home. Any suggestions? Thanks Kim

    I think those could be done quickly and you may even downsize your stash.

    One of our family traditions at Christmas is a scratch and win lottery ticket under the dinner plate.

    My niece first did it years ago, and we were all surprised. Then it became a tradition. One year someone forgot ..... and talk about a bunch of disappointed adults!! :) It was just TOO funny!

    a couple of suggestions about the rings:
    having an embroidery machine would help. but if you use a generic color, they can use them at other times, too. i'd make the ring part stiffer by putting batting in and make it like a mini quilt.

    These are such FUN suggestions. One year I put lotto tickets in everyone's Christmas stockings...but I like them under the plate too.

    How about just pinking sheer cut a small square of fall fabric and putting some of those Hershey's Kisses in them that come in the fall color foil wrappers. Curly ribbon up the top.

    Great ideas, all. I've done the lottery tickets in the Christmas stockings but never under Thanksgiving plates. Might try that this year.
