Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. My family hosted the gathering at our house every year when I was growing up, so it’s always been a big deal for me. My mom had boxes and boxes of decorations so the house was in full-Fall mode. I was always really involved with the cooking as well.
This year I’m not hosting Thanksgiving, but I have absolutely loved having a house to decorate for Fall! We bought our house in August and I decided Fall was going to start right away. It’s been so much fun to decorate.
#1 “Thankful” Placemats: Target is the place to go for everything you’ll need to create a pretty tablescape. I’m loving these cute “Thankful” placemats.
#2 Pumpkin Casserole Baker: These fun casserole dishes are great for making side dishes like sweet potato casserole or baked mac and cheese. Plus, this one adds to the table decor too!
#3 Fall Apron: If you are hosting a Thanksgiving gathering, you have to wear a cute Fall apron while you cook!
#4 Roasting Pan: If this is your first time hosting, you might be lacking some of the essential cooking supplies, such as a roasting pan.
#5 Triple Slow Cooker: This is such a helpful gadget for entertaining! Cook up 3 appetizers at once, or use it to keep buffet-style sides warm.
#6 Pie Pan: It’s just not Thanksgiving without pie! This deep dish pan is perfect for apple pie, peanut butter pie, cherry pie… you get the picture!
#7 Cheeseboard: Entertain in style with this marble cheeseboard! Serve up a fancy display of various cheeses and crackers.
#8 Gravy Boat: Of course, you’ll need some gravy to go along with the turkey and mashed potatoes.
