Now that we’ve officially wrapped up T’s birthday extravaganza, I’ve finally started thinking about Thanksgiving…which is probably a good idea considering it is next week! I have a whole section in one of my recipe binders reserved just for Thanksgiving recipes. I’m also always adding to my Thanksgiving Pinterest board for hosting inspiration.
Over the past few years, I have hosted Thanksgiving at our home and I am always looking for fun new ideas and recipes for the big day. This year I have decided to do a full coffee bar set-up so that my guests can have coffee and their favorite International Delight Creamers before, during, or after their Thanksgiving dinner. I was able to find four of the I.D. holiday flavors at Target today. It’s going to be a very hard decision to pick which one to try first- Gingerbread Latte, Sugar Cookie, Peppermint Chocolate Truffle, or Pumpkin Pie Spice?! To set up your holiday coffee bar, just add freshly brewed coffee, coffee cups, your favorite International Delight Creamers, a couple of spoons to stir things up, and a few decorative Thanksgiving pieces.
A few coffee bar tips- You may want to throw your International Delight on ice if you plan to have it out for a few hours so it’s stays cold and fresh! If you are stocking up on International Delight for your Thanksgiving guests, be sure to sign up for their Member Delights program to get a free instant coupon towards I.D. Also, you can create an easy and cheap table decor piece by searching Pinterest for free Thanksgiving printables. There is a lot of great stuff out there…just print and frame once you find something that catches your eye! If you have a single-serve coffee maker (such as a Keurig,) you could also set that up on your coffee bar with your favorite K-cup selection so that your guests can make their own cups of hot coffee as needed.
I’ve also started picking some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes from the 2S2C archives to make for next week. Here’s my current list so far:
- Rosemary Parmesan Popcorn (for a light snack/appetizer before the big dinner)
Do you host Thanksgiving each year or do you usually travel to family or friends? What’s your favorite go-to Thanksgiving entertainment idea and/or recipe?
