Masha here from Masha Plans! Today we’re bringing the holiday spirit to our Bullet Journals with these 7 ideas.
When November comes and people start talking about holidays, what I think of is Thanksgiving a fun holiday which also requires quite a lot of preparation.
So today we are setting up 7 Thanksgiving-themed Bullet Journal pages to bring the holidays to your BuJo and help you plan them in the best possible way.
Notebook - Of course for me it’s my wonderful B5 Archer and Olive notebook
Fineliners - my current choice is Pigmen Pens by Faber Castell
Markers - I used bright oranges and yellows of Karin markers for my Thanksgiving pages
Get all the things ready and let’s dive in!
This isn’t really a quote, just a “Happy Thanksgiving” page, but it totally could be a thanksgiving quote if you wanted it to be.
Quote pages are what adds that extra touch to your theme and are also great to fill out any empty spread you might have.
What better time than November to give a chance to a gratitude log!
Gratitude log is a great practice that can help you become better and a little bit happier every day, so definitely give it a try!
I love creating bucket lists, they remind you of all the beautiful things you love about the season and create that extra feeling of excitement.
Create a bucket list of things you want to do in November, or maybe just a list of things you want to do with your family on Thanksgiving day.
Getting the Thanksgiving dinner ready can be a huge pain in your poor and overworked neck, so use this spread to help you plan it out.
Write down all the dishes you’ll have and who is responsible for bringing or cooking those. If you want more details, you can also divide the meals by the type of dishes: main dish, side dish, dessert and such.
The grocery list definitely should be next to your menu, for better coordination.
Just like with the menu, you can separate your list by categories: meats, vegetables, spices. Or by how in advance you can buy things.
Thanksgiving Planning List
This is your master list to plan all things thanksgiving. Really, the earlier you start planning, the smoother it’ll go.
I’m obsessed with pre-planning things so I’d start planning a month in advance but feel free to add any deadlines you have for yourself. Just be sure to give a thought to all the tasks and assign them to be completed in advance.
This will help you orient on how much food should be prepared. Plus, you can use this spread to note what are food preferences or allergies of some of your guests.
