A Sharpie Thanksgiving

Okay, I’m not sure where this came from but it’s on in the History section.  Back in the early 60′s when Sharpie was first introduced, Johnny Carson and Jack Parr from the Tonight Show were some of our first product endorsers.  So I think that’s where the NBC Sharpie Peacock was born.

Now if a Sharpie NBC “Turkey” isn’t exactly what you had in mind for your Thanksgiving centerpiece, here’s a quick idea from interior designer Libby Langdon to personalize your table.  This is an easy one for me because I happen to have dozens of decorative stones “sleeping” in the backyard, just waiting for a place at my Thanksgiving table.   I’m going to use some combination of Sharpie’s new Coleurs Cafe markers – the colors are just right for Thanksgiving:  Earl Grey, Pomegranite, Blueberry, Mocha and Hibiscus.

“Thankful” Stone Place Cards and Centerpiece

Gather smooth creamy river rocks from a lake, pond or beach or buy a big bag of them at a local garden center or home improvement store. Write each guest’s name with a black Sharpie pen on a stone and rest them on napkins at each place setting on the table. Fill a large glass bowl or vase with the remaining river stones and a glass of black Sharpie pens on a buffet. When guests arrive, ask them to write what they are thankful for in one word on a stone (they can do as many as they like)… have the table set with a bamboo or cork runner (or any runner you have) down the center and set patches of moss on top of the runner. Ask guests to place their “thankful stones” down the center of the tables in and around the moss and then complete the table setting by adding loads of little white votive candles in clear glass holders to create a warm glow. This is a fun idea because the stones double as place cards and it’s also a conversation starter that gets people talking at the table about what they are thankful for.

  1. I was wondering where the new Sharpie Couleurs Cafe are available? I only spotted some in a 24 pack at Walmart a few weeks ago and I have been searching everywhere for them in a separate pack with no luck. They look like nice colours and I love the names. Thanks for your help!

  3. Candles are wonderful things that can evoke many moods and enhance many settings. Perhaps you’re planning a romantic dinner for two, or a family Thanksgiving or Christmas gathering. Placing candles on the table adds to your decor and tells your guests that they’re special.*
