Are you the lucky one in your family who's hosting Thanksgiving? Has it always been a tradition in your family to have Thanksgiving at your house, or is this your first year? Either way, if you enjoy setting a beautiful Thanksgiving table, you're not alone.
Thanksgiving is something most of us look forward to all year long. You get to enjoy the company of your family (and all the delicious goodies!) without the hustle and bustle that Christmas or Hanukkah can sometimes bring.
Sitting down with your loved ones to a fantastic meal is one of the best things in life and should be enjoyed to its fullest. One of the best things about the holiday is the seasonal enjoyments. Autumn-inspired foods such as pumpkin pie, corn, butternut squash, and cranberry sauce fill our senses with their mouth-watering aromas. And autumn colors entice us and fill us with the appreciation of the beauty of the season.
Why not bring these two together on your Thanksgiving table to enjoy both of the most appealing things the season and holiday has to offer? Autumn and fall offer so many warm and colorful decorations along with the season's edible bounty.
For starters, won't your family guests be impressed when they sit down to darling leaf or fall design table setting holders? Autumn or fall themed candles make a lovely addition to the table decoratively. "Pass the potatoes please", and underneath they find an attractive autumn or fall trivet protecting the table! Leaf shaped dishes hold the olives and condiments. Autumn leaves coasters protect the table from the drinks and add charm. Place a turkey party favor filled with a small dish of butter or mints. And maybe a turkey shaped iced cookie that arrives already baked, iced, and darling-just ready for you to hand out to your guests.
After dinner, add a festive touch using your fall themed wine bottle stopper! Better yet, send your guests home with their own fall themed wine bottle stopper or any other delicious "take home and enjoy" favor such as fall themed mini syrup bottles, fall themed packets of cider or hot chocolate, fall printed packs of jelly beans, fall wrapped candies, and packs of muffin mix all nicely decorated in exquisite fall designs. They'll be thinking of you warmly and sweetly while putting out their holiday decor over the next few days!
If you're feeling like adding even more flair to your home, put a few fall themed or leaf shaped soaps in your bathroom! They'll be able to tell you went all out for their enjoyment and comfort. They'll be calling you "the hostess with the mostess" or the "host with the most" for all of your efforts.
Party favors aren't just for weddings and other events. Take advantage of what there is to offer your guests! The Thanksgiving table should get just as much attention and appreciation as the Christmas or Hanukkah table. And autumn is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Setting the perfect Thanksgiving table only poses one problem, outdoing yourself next year! With all the available gorgeous seasonal favors and decor, that won't be problem.
