Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year? We have some amazing appetizer and side dish suggestions, as well as table decor tips to make your dinner a HUGE success!
Set the Table:
Your table display sets the tone for dinner, so make it as formal or rustic as you like. Will you have a tablecloth or placemats? How about a wood runner down the center of the table? Will you have candles or flowers? There are so many options!
If you are worried that you need some new decorations for your table, consider creating your own personalized decor instead of the same cookie-cutter store bought decor. Visit a local DIY studio, like The Rustic Brush, to build your own centerpiece, tray, cake stand, or table runner. Personalize it with your family name, a nice touch that will impress your visiting family. Their instructors will walk you through the steps of staining it, building it, and painting the design onto your project. Impress your family with your craft skills!
Charcuterie boards are so trendy right now, so give it a try! Passion for Savings has broken down exactly how to create your own board with a Thanksgiving flair using gutted pumpkins to hold some of the treats, fresh berries, pumpkin seeds, and rosemary garnish. Your guests will love snacking from this beautiful arrangement.
Do you have a cheese tray? Remember, that is one of the fun projects you can make at The Rustic Brush!
I don’t know about you, but side dishes are my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner! Green bean casserole, stuffing, potatoes, cranberries – so many flavors, so little time. I love how the side dishes add so much color to your table! The Cards We Drew has put together 40 of the tastiest side dishes out there. Look through these recipes to find a new side dish for your Thanksgiving dinner this year.
We want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and hope that your time with family and friends is memorable. Enjoy the company, the wine, and the Thanksgiving dinner!
