Thanksgiving just may be the easiest holiday to love. Delicious food, tons of friends and family gathered around the table, and a cocktail in your hand… just to name a few of your favorite things! Whether your style is cosmopolitan or traditional, a dramatic table with personalized touches is a sure way to make it a memorable holiday for all your guests.
Clear a side table or desktop in another room to create a cocktail bar. Incorporate a variety of spirits and Stirrings® Mixers, plus garnishes to allow guests to explore their cocktail creativity. Don’t forget to have plenty of non-alcoholic options for those who choose not to toast with spirits.
While the turkey roasts, put out plenty of light appetizers your guests can nibble on, along with bowls of cashews and pistachios. Make things easy for yourself and assemble one warm appetizer ahead of time so you can simply pop it in the oven when your guests arrive.
An impeccably set table is one of the most effective ways to spread a festive holiday mood. But a Thanksgiving table doesn’t have to be a Broadway production. All you need is a few inspired ideas. Simple wicker baskets filled with seasonal vegetables, fruit, and flowers is a great place to start!
