A Thanksgiving Setting

Family gatherings can be a wonderful time filled with love and laughter. In order to keep underlying stress out of the equation we are sharing some spectacular decor, tips, and tricks. The key to enjoying this season is giving thanks, just as the banner below would suggest. We hope these help make your thanksgiving dinner one to remember!

Have a large console table that isn’t being used? Turn it into your very own serving area, with cake stands, and decorative accents like the acorns above. Tip:  Print out your menu, or a quote with a nice typeface and  put it into a pretty frame.

Tip: Candles are the easiest and possibly most affordable way to create a festive mood.

Tip: For a nice decorative touch use mini pumpkins as place card holders. Simply use decorative tape and wrap it around the stem until the two sides of the tape have joined, then write your guests names.

Fall leaves are pretty spectacular, so if you are lucky enough to have them nearby why not use them as centerpieces, or place holders, the opportunities are endless.

If you want to take the party outside, choose warm rich colors to contrast the greenery. Stick to natural materials like bamboo or jute.

Want to be the hostess with the mostess? Offer them this Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate, and you’ll be the talk of the family for years to come.
