A Thanksgiving to Remember

It’s the little touches and the little things in life that we remember.  I wanted to take a moment and share our Thanksgiving with you!

Happy Thanksgiving

I am into the little things, little signs, tags, etc! I used free printable here. I am also a huge SIGN person.  I searched the internet and found tons of different signs to print out and frame throughout the room.


Straws with Thanksgiving flags

Check out these adorable straws we made with the free printable and paper straws from Target! First thing is first and that is the decorating! You want the perfect setting to go with your themed.  I went for a light tablecloth (burlap like) and used props to make the runner perfect!

Sangria is a must for every party I have.  I also had to be festive and make some homemade Apple Cider! Click here for the recipe!


Now onto the tables! Let me say that by far Arte Italica is my favorite dinnerware! Gorgeous and goes year round. Everyone compliments them & they truly are durable and stunning to look at!  We used Libbey Glassware for our glasses and they made a very special touch!

One of my all time favorite things are appetizers! I could honestly eat apps all day and all night long! For our apps we used amazing dips Robert Rothschild Farm.  They were amazing! Honestly the Spinach & Artichoke dip went and I refilled & it went again within minutes! It’s a must have! The honey mustard pretzel dip is also outstanding! it’s a little sweet, but has a nice bite to it!

I also love appetizers that can also be desserts, like Darcy’s delights! The Date nut bread is amazing and I had it on the app table.  The banana bread is to die for! Darcy’s breads are a must try.  They are preservative free and full of flavor! Can’t ask for more than that!


Darcy’s Delights Breads- Amazing!

We had to throw in a little Thanksgiving theme with a turkey inspired fruit tray! We used a pear for the body and then you can use whatever fruit you would like around it.  It turned out super cute!


We also used Cedar’s hummus– delicious! Their pita chips are also very light and not heavy like many others I have tried.  If you are looking for a light Pita Chip, they are the one! They are perfect for a light snack before a huge holiday meal! The roasted red pepper hummus is my far my favorite of Cedars! Looking for a great chip? Look in the back of the picture below.  The Better Chip is the go to chip of choice for me! The Kale ones are my fav!!

As always we had to have some amazing napkins to match the theme! Custom napkins from Napkins Personalized! I just love them and they have the best customer service ever! Personalized napkins do really give your guests a special thing to remember.

Now what makes a table setting perfect?  Well not just the dinnerware, but you also need the perfect candle & Colonial Candle really does make a perfect setting! They are the perfect candle for the centerpieces and look how they illuminated our dessert table! Seriously stunning.  Colonial Candles are perfect for stacking by each other too! When I get married, I will be sure to use them for the centerpiece candles!

To bring a little Fall smell in the air, we brought Delicious Hard Cider to the event! McKenzie’s Hard Cider has Pumpkin Hard Cider! Can’t get any better than that! The Green Apple Hard Cider is by far my favorite and brings a nice holiday vibe to the drink table!

Our dessert items consisted of cakes, rice crispy treats, chocolates, Berlin Natural Bakery Cookies, Sherri Design Suckers and so much more! Berlin Natural Bakery cookies are honestly amazing, always a hit and everyone LOVES them.  They are natural, soft and so scrumptious! Sherri Core Designs has suckers in amazing flavors.  Move over plan sugar pop, Sherrie Design Suckers come in Amaretto, Peach, Cocktail, Watermelon, Apple Cinnamon and so much more!
