Check out these Thanksgiving party ideas from celebrations.com and you too can host a Thanksgiving Pie Exchange Party. Continue reading
Our friends at celebrations.com have created a thanksgiving feast to impress even the stuffiest of guests. Using our Elegant Gratitude Thanksgiving invitation as their inspiration, the decorations, table settings and menu incorporate simple, natural elements with a modern twist of elegance.
Using a centerpiece of wheat stalks (find out how to make it yourself at celebrations.com) they anchored the display in a bed of leaf sprigs that echoed the invitation, supplementing the display with nuts, pumpkins, artichokes and acorns. Metallic coatings on the leaves add a touch of modern elegance.
Chairs at the table were draped with tea towels featuring an ivory and brown artichoke pattern and tied with an organza ribbon. Place settings of yellow and orange plates were topped with pumpkins serving as place cards. The menu was kept to traditional favorites, but ended with a surprise: pumpkin parfaits instead of pie. Spiced nuts, also used in the salad, were sent home with the guests in decorated jars.
Finally, to help stimulate conversation at the table, a basket of conversation starters was passed around. Pear Tree Greetings’ Thanksgiving mini note cards, pre-personalized with the words “I am thankful for…” are a perfect way to get the conversation going.

If you are lucky enough to have a warm home to go to this Thanksgiving, filled with the mouthwatering smell of roasting turkey and the happy chatter of family and friends, then you have plenty of reasons to be thankful. It’s easy to get swept up in the hubbub of cooking and decorating, not to mention family tensions, and lose sight of what’s most important on this uniquely American holiday.
Want to add a little more thankfulness to your Turkey Day? These Thanksgiving party ideas came from one of our customers, who told us of a gathering she hosted at her home to benefit the local food shelf. The host family prepares a simple but hearty meal of a few soups and bread. On the Thanksgiving invitations she requested that the guests all bring a non-perishable item that would be delivered to the local food shelf.
Thanksgiving party ideas like these are a wonderful way to bring people together, enjoy each other’s company, and do some good at the same time. For more Thanksgiving ideas, keep reading our blog. Or start shopping for your own Thanksgiving invitations to create your own event this year.
