As Chicagoans we are thankful because the Chicago Cubs are the World Series Champs for the first time in more than a decade. And so we smile.
As Americans we are thankful because soon many of us will have the opportunity to gather together and enjoy a meal. While we may no longer truly see this as a celebration of fall's harvest, it is a celebration steeped in tradition. Almost every table will include a turkey and stuffing. There will be fancy napkins, beautiful plates, dessert plates and a few Thanksgiving decor touches to make everyone feel the specialness of the day.
As hard-working families look for ways to ease the planning and prep, many turn to places like the party store to find specialty items for the Thanksgiving holiday. We do, of course, carry a variety of Thanksgiving-themed dinner ware, and there are more than a few styles of Thanksgiving decorations for the home, the classroom, or office. And there are items that can be used to make a table more festive - a spray of fall colored leaves, napkin rings, pumpkins and gourds. The party store has everything you need to put the finishing touches on your holiday meal. Stop in and check out our complete collection.
