These mini Mayflower Thanksgiving favors will be a hit at your Thanksgiving dinner. 


Mini Mayflower Thanksgiving Favors

If you want a Thanksgiving favor that is a little more sophisticated for adults, how about these Mini Mayflower Thanksgiving favor nut cups? This was also a last minute favor I whipped up Thanksgiving morning last year. Why do I always wait until the last minute? Maybe because that’s when my best ideas come!

Anyways, thanks to my Silhouette machine, I cut out and assembled over 10 of these mini Mayflowers  quickly. And thank goodness that candied almonds were a quick make as well.


You could fill these mini Mayflower Thanksgiving favors with any sort of nut, popcorn, or candy, but I opted for these Cinnamon Roasted Almonds that I make every Thanksgiving because they are always a hit.


Just look at those. You’ll notice some of the mini Mayflowers weren’t as full of almonds as others. That’s because yours truly kept eating them. Silly me.



Supplies Needed

Adorable Thanksgiving Place Settings

These mini Mayflowers  make a cute place setting! Place one on each plate and let each guest snack from the boats until the turkey is ready.  Aren’t those mini mayflowers just so cute? I was pretty pleased! And I did get some smiles. Which is always a bonus!


Have a great Thanksgiving!

I’m not sure how I stumbled on your website- but I was friends with Kristin growing up and it caught my eye. I love it! My kids are about the same ages as yours and I love your ideas and have used quite a few of them now with my own little ones! I love how fun the things shared here are to do- and how do-able and relatively simple they are! I feel like it’s stuff that enriches life, and doesn’t burden it (like so many of the over-the-top things I see on pinterest) Thank you so much for putting this together and sharing your wonderful ideas here. I loved your post on traditions- and I agree with everything you wrote.
