The one-of-a-kind (OOAK) THANKS-GIVING Ball with Gratitude Notes is a meaningful, functional and unique addition for your Thanksgiving decor and traditional November holiday gathering. This unique and meaningful piece would be a great idea for a gift under $40 for your own family gathering, or to give as a hostess gift.

There's a December tradition of hanging a sprig or ball of mistletoe up and kissing under it. Well, this ball for Thanksgiving is larger, and certainly not just for "those" kinds of kisses. Hang this ball in your home, or bring it to the home you'll be spending Thanksgiving in. This is a mindful reminder for everyone present to hug and/or kiss everyone else present and remember why each one is special.

So much to be thankful for, whether it's the cadence and lilt of an elderly Mother or Grandmother's voice, and the remembrance of how that person shaped you, or the gratitude in having an extended family, or friends (friends are the family we choose for ourselves).

This unique ball is a mindful reminder for everyone under that single roof on Thanksgiving to show appreciation and gratitude for each and every person in attendance.

The diameter of this ball is 6-1/2", and the hanging loop is 6" long. I didn't want to put anything hanging from the bottom of the ball, because taller people would possibly have had the ribbons or trim constantly in the way. The ball is layered with a wide, plaid taffeta ribbon in the colors of harvest. There are several dozen silk fall leaves layered around the ball. There are dozens of different sizes of metallic brown and coppery beads attached, as well as different sprigs of fall trim. There are also gilded appliques of turkeys, pumpkins, sayings like "Grateful for my Family", "Gathering in Gratitude", etc. on all sides of the ball. Touches of glitter paint highlight the veins of the leaves, the appliques, the sprigs of autumn accessories, and the plaid taffeta ribbon.

On the top of the ball is a loop of sage green French grosgrain ribbon that has an iridescence of gold, browns and copper. There are also streamers and loops of an orange satiny ribbon that has "Thankful & Grateful" written in gold all along the ribbon. Topping the ribbon pieces is a frosted pumpkin.

This is a new tradition that you can embrace this Thanksgiving and use for years to come.

I will send along with this gratitude ball small hand-drawn gratitude notes (cards) for each person at your Thanksgiving table. When the dessert is served, each person can write one thing that they are grateful for about the person seated to their right, and in turn each person around the table can read what was written in love and gratitude about them, and take the card home as a souvenir of being loved.

*** In the "Notes to Seller" part of the Etsy checkout, please let me know how many cards you need ***.
