As we move into November, there are many opportunities to decorate, celebrate, and enjoy family and friends. My favorite holiday is, of course, Thanksgiving. No gifts. Just family and friends, good food and good times. Sure there may be a hearty debate or a few words minced over the football games, but that's nothing compared to the excitement this country just enjoyed.
For Thanksgiving, you can set your table with fine china and complement the decor with fall holiday designs. Or go completely untraditional with a football themed decor in the family room where everyone goes off to watch the game, enjoying snacks from their football shaped bowls and NFL napkins. Now wouldn't that stir things up just a bit? Me, I'm more of a traditional kind of girl. My party theme will be Thanksgiving from the family room to the dining table, from the kitchen counter snacks to dessert. I like to keep it simple in design and decor. Since we eat in a room with a large bay style window, there will be Thanksgiving decorations on the window and of course, a turkey to greet the guests as they enter. But other than that, for me it's all about the linens and the food. We'll have disposable Thanksgiving napkins and plates for appetizers and desserts.
Whether you're traditional, like to mix things up or are just looking for ways to make the clean up a little easier, the party store has something to help you look your best this Thanksgiving.
