Thanksgiving Tips to Volunteer Together as a Family


Food,Family,Fun...Simplified! Taking the Stress out of Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we have the essential tips you need to make your Thanksgiving less stressful!

Food, Family, Fun Simplified!

1. Food - Get the family involved and have a family friendly food station to make  desserts & the perfect "take away" for all your guests!

2. Family - DIY simple place settings that revolve around gratitude and being thankful. Easy to make and it is a great way to involve all ages at the Thanksgiving table! 

3. Fun - decorate your table was simple and elegant decor you have on hand that will make for a special and memorable Thanksgiving table! 

Give Thanks!

I love Thanksgiving! The food, family and friends all gathering around and reflecting on our blessings and gratitude for one another! Indeed, it's a special time! I love this easy and affordable way to give thanks to those who go the extra mile to make our lives better each and every day – teachers, principals, bus drivers, neighbors! It is also the perfect Thanksgiving gift for any guest! Giving thanks to those who bless your life is as easy as 1-2-3 and truly a gift of deliciousness!

What you will need:

- 4 ounce mason jars 

- Fresh apples (I love Honeycrisp apples, but you can't go wrong with any kind of apple for this!)

- Caramel dipping sauce (You can make your own or buy store bought- both are delicious!)

- Ribbon

- Tags (make your own or check it your local craft store!)

- Cello bags (craft store)


Bonfire Bliss!

I love November! There's a small window of time after Halloween and before Thanksgiving where Autumn is in full glow! The air is crisp and the trees have turned colors as a reminder that time is precious! Hot cider and bonfires on my favorite way to spend time with family and friends during this magical time of year! I love bonfire gatherings because they're simple and all about being together! Whether you roast hotdogs or make Smore's, you can turn whatever outdoor living space you have into a magical setting with a bonfire! Grab a cozy blanket and warm up some cider and call your favorite friends over for a bonfire!


Top Trends for A Spooktacular Halloween Party! 

We are officially on the Halloween Countdown and now more than ever Halloween trends as one of the biggest days of the year to celebrate with food, family, friends and fun! 

Metallic Madness- Metallic Colors, such as, copper, silver, gold are the hot trend this Halloween! It's easy to work into your Halloween decorating both inside and outside! These DIY trends using metallic are not only affordable, but easy as well! 

Tricks & Treats- it doesn't have to be fancy or expensive to be clever and serve tricks and treats for Halloween fun! One of my favorite ways to serve up tricks and treats is a popcorn station with a few haunting surprises and fun Halloween twists added to it!

Repurpose & Reuse Halloween Decor- just about every craft superstore is running Halloween sales. Check out Michael's and hobby lobby for online and in-store coupons up to 50% off! What I love about Halloween as you don't always have to shop in the Halloween section for items you can use every day, but make Spooktacular around Halloween! Using trends like burlap, crates, and recycled glass bottles are a great way to repurpose what you have and make it Bootastic for a Halloween gathering/party!
