Somewhere between Halloween and Christmas, the special American tradition of Thanksgiving often gets lost and under-celebrated. Nobody plays dress up and gifts often aren't given, but Thanksgiving is still a holiday worth celebrating. Perhaps you can take an opportunity while you have a bit of a November lull before the holidays really get into gear, to have a small dinner party with great autumn decorations or bring a hearty dish to a family member's house on a Sunday evening.
You may not know the first thing about baking pies or crafting up incredible fall decorations, but trust me, you don't have to dress up as Susie Homemaker for Halloween anymore – you can also act the part. Using a unique and easy recipe and following a few quick steps for small decorations, your home can look and smell like it came out of a magazine. And your loved ones will look at you like they don't know who created this crafty queen.
If you're going to a Thanksgiving dinner party and want to bring a dish, don't volunteer to cook the bird, stick with something that you know, like pasta, and make it a dish to be thankful for. Using a basic penne pasta and a large butternut squash, you can create pumpkin pasta that will wow all your friends and relatives. On Thanksgiving evening, everyone will welcome the new addition to the table, with pasta as a delightful side dish to the regular turkey and mashed potatoes. Use this easy recipe for pumpkin pasta from our friends at RecipeLion.com.
If you're entertaining at your own home, be sure to make a few creative autumn-inspired favors for your guests, even if your guests include your younger siblings and your dear parents. Everyone will appreciate the extra touches to the holiday and you will certainly look like the Susie Homemaker to beat. Keep it simple.
The last thing you can do, whether you're entertaining at your home or attending a Thanksgiving meal put on by a relative, create gift tags that can act as napkin rings or place cards with a simple Thankful phrase like “Give Thanks” or “I'm Thankful for...” and decorate with turkey-inspired fall stamps and stencils. Your guests will appreciate the extra little touch of décor and the cards may even spark some conversation about what we're all thankful for!
