Thanksgiving is less than a week away but there’s still time for last minute touches to add some extra sparkle to your holiday! For those hosting or invited to Thanksgiving this year read my suggestions below for some quick and easy additions that are sure to impress:


For the Guest

Don’t come empty handed! It’s a nice gesture to show your appreciation with these Simple and Thoughtful Host Gift Ideas: 

Flowers and wine are a staple host gift, however a gourmet olive oil is a unique twist. The Crushed Olive has a wide variety of gourmet and infused oils that will make an unforgettable gift. 


Who doesn’t like a little chocolate? Bon Bons makes molded chocolates that are tasty and beautiful. 



For the Host

Whether you are serving a large crowd or just a few family friends, I’ve put together some Thanksgiving Table Decorating Ideas:

Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween: These rustic harvest vegetables are the perfect canvas for Thanksgiving. Get CREATIVE!

Go DIY and make a succulent garden pumpkin centerpiece. What you’ll need: Check out Michael's 



Add in different size pumpkins around centerpiece and get creative with chalk paint to take it up a notch.

Have your guests glow along side natural candle light. From tea lights to candle sticks, the soft light will set a comfortable and warm atmosphere around the table.
