Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and, thankfully, I think I’m off the hook for preparing dinner this year. It’s my first year close to Josh’s family and I was fully prepared to be the one hosting everyone in our rental house, which would have been less than ideal. But Josh’s aunt saved the day and invited us over to her place. Not sure I’ll get so lucky next year though. 😉 If you’re in charge of dinner prep for your family’s thanksgiving festivities this year, I’m sure you’re on the hunt for the perfect table setting and all of the yummy recipes. But one detail that often gets overlooked is the butter. It’s something simple, but with the easiest little entertaining trick you can turn it into a showstopper. In today’s post, I’m showing you guys how to make shaped butter, which is SO simple, but can really elevate your Thanksgiving table!
I don’t think there’s ever a bad time of year for ice cream. Sure, the weather cools down and you may not want to be eating a cone outside, but the right scoop of ice cream paired with some warm apple pie or on top of a warm brownie can really hit the spot during the winter months! This chai tea ice cream recipe is easy to make and is the perfect fall treat with all of those spicy chai flavors. (I especially love crumbling up some biscoff cookies to add on top too!) Switch up your normal cup of chai tea and try it in a bowl this year!

I’m over boring and bland friendsgiving and thanksgiving themed decor. Who said your tables can’t be colorful and bright?! Not me! And I’m proving that today with a fun and easy way to transform your friendsgiving event this year with a pop of color! This DIY ombre friendsgiving centerpiece can be made in a day and couldn’t be more simple to put together. Plus, I’m also sharing an easy and delicious drink recipe (that only has 3 ingredients!) that you can serve to your friends and family too! 😉
This fall DIY floral pumpkin arrangement is easy to make and can be created in less than an hour with only a few supplies!
I love a good DIY project that has multiple functions. And by multiple functions, I mean one that can seamlessly transition between holidays. This DIY floral pumpkin does just that! It can happily fit into early themed fall decor in September, follow on through with Halloween in October, or even make it onto the table for Thanksgiving in November.
Whichever holiday or season you plan to use it for, this beauty is really easy to make and can be created in less than an hour!
This pumpkin rice krispy treat pie is a delicious alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving dessert and it’s easy to make too!
Pumpkin…the mascot of October and the pie of choice for November. But, I have a confession to make. I hate pumpkin pie. Loathe. Maybe that’s a better word. I’ve tried to choke down a bite every single Thanksgiving and regardless, my taste buds reject it every time. I don’t get it. I like pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin spice lattes, and anything else that the stores stock on the shelves during the month of October…but pumpkin pie? Noooope. Can’t. Do. It.
I know I’m in a segregated group of weirdo’s, but alas, here I am. Pumpkin pie-less. Until today!
With a few simple adjustments, this pumpkin rice krispy treat pie is a solid replacement for the Thanksgiving staple. (And one I’d gladly eat instead!)
This week, I’m tackling a lot of those dreaded Thanksgiving hosting questions, and today is no exception. You’ve planned the menu, designed a tablescape to impress everyone in the family, and have the liquor cabinet stocked, but what about the playlist? Have you given any thought about what to turn on in the background while you’re enjoying all of that other Thanksgiving goodness? If not, I’ve got you covered! I’m sharing a printable Thankgiving dinner playlist that is a jazzy retro turkey dinner dream. (Yes, I totally just described a playlist that way).
This playlist features the classics like Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and so many more. It’s a classic. Just trust me on this one guys.
I’m all about unexpected and fun details for my parties. The littlest things can make a huge difference and can be the details that your guests really remember. And Thanksgiving is no exception! Today’s easy DIY is a funny twist on a classic Thanksgiving tradition that will have everyone feeling lucky!
These DIY chocolate Thanksgiving wishbones are so simple to make, but really add such a fun and unique twist to your table. I love the idea of using them for place cards or even just for an added fun element at the kids table (even though you know the adults are going to be jealous too!)
If you’re in charge of hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year you have either not given any thought to the centerpiece for your table, or you’ve given it too much thought and stressed about what you’re going to do. Whichever scenario you might fall into, I’m sharing a stunning, simple, and oh, so easy, DIY Thanksgiving apple centerpiece that will turn any table into a showstopper.
With a few natural elements that you can find at your local grocery store and in your own yard, this rustic and unexpected centerpiece is a nod to that crisp Fall weather that I want to hang onto as long as possible!
