Cozy Thanksgiving?

One idea we love is if you are having close family or friends over, set up some tables outside per family. Think of a Thanksgiving buffet style with your family while being in the presence of other family and friends. A classic thanksgiving theme compliments this setting.

 Depending where you are located and the weather - an outdoor space makes a wonderful natural canvas to create a bright and beautiful Thanksgiving setting. With a natural background, A vibrant Thanksgiving table setting with bold colors like bright burnt red plates and orange placemats, and white twine knotted napkins on a white table runner. Create dimension by adding different heights, shapes and textures of autumn hued candles. Ade full table-length greenery garland that runs off both sides of the table and accents like pumpkins or corn husks. Don’t neglect the chairs - a nice touch is to add pillows and a nice throw on each setting area for if it gets a bit chilly. 

 Fry the Bird!

This is spectacular way to get folks outside, it’s a thanksgiving phenomenon, and gives whoever is in the kitchen a break! It will put the turkey at the center of any party from modern to country style! Don’t forget the s’mores bonfire after your Thanksgiving meal!

Support A Local or Small Business 

Pie for breakfast? Beautiful Cookie Boxes? These are trends for 2022 and a great way to support small businesses in your area and take some work off your plate! Order "Thanksgiving in a Box"  dinners from local restaurants and small businesses for your family or order for your loved ones, like our older family members, to include them in on the Thanksgiving fun. Encourage everyone to bring a dessert or side from a small business.
