Keep the Hunger to a Minimum

We all know cooking the meal leaves a lot of guests pretty hungry as he day goes by. Place some bread on the table so your guests can control their hunger for the meal to come. Add some cheese or butter to a festive cheese board for some extra flavor.

Make Sure the Table is Well Lit

Placing tea lights throughout your table will bring additional warmth and light to your table. Add tea lights with acorn charms to bring the outdoors to you, or if you’re feeling a bit more glam dot your table with glitter pumpkin votives!

Don’t Leave Your Guests Without a Drink

With all the delicious food ahead of you, it is important to make sure your guests stay well hydrated! And while any old glasses will do the trick, personalized glasses will make your Thanksgiving even more special. And personalization doesn’t stop at glasses; you can personalize bottle stoppers, too! So when it’s time to toast to a great evening, everyone will be ready!

Decorate With a Delicious Dessert

Nothing tops off a table setting like a tasty treat! Have your pie or other seasonal dessert presented for all your guests to see on the table. Don’t hide it in the kitchen! Make sure to have the right equipment, like these acorn measuring spoons, to make your dessert as well.

Remember What Matters Most

Whether the turkey comes out golden brown or a complete mess, remember it’s not the food you remember most. Thanksgiving is all about the family and friends you share this special day with. So be sure to raise a glass and celebrate how thankful you are for the wonderful people in your life!
