Celebrating Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year I’ll be hosting Thanksgiving for the first time. While some might find the task stressing and overwhelming, I’m incredibly excited! Besides reading, my other love is food and there’s no better holiday to celebrate that love than Thanksgiving!


The Setting:

Fall is easily my favorite season, making Thanksgiving décor an easy task. Lots of fall leaves and burnt oranges in my new favorite centerpiece from Michaels. Complete with turkey napkins passed down from my parents, the holiday vibe is all set! I also found a beautiful table cloth at Target last minute. It’s technically part of their Christmas collection, but the gold speckled pattern could easily match any holiday décor.

The Menu (Links in Blue):

Roasted Turkey (brined overnight)

Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Streusel

Squash Casserole

Green Bean Casserole

Traditional Dressing

Mashed Potatoes

Turkey Gravy

Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Cloverleaf Rolls



Pumpkin Roll

Old Fashioned Molasses Cookies

Mini Pumpkin Pies – so easy!

Mini Chocolate Pecan Pies

Bread Pudding (my mom’s specialty!)

It might be overkill, but you can never have too many deserts at Thanksgiving! Plus, all the better to share at the office later. 🙂
