With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about some seasonal décor for your festive dinner. You’ve spent weeks planning the perfect meal for your family and friends, but have you thought about what you are going to serve the food on? Thankfully, Pier 1 Imports has got you covered. To help you plan for your Thanksgiving dinner, I‘ve shared some of my party hosting tips with you below.
1. Figure out your hosting style. Is this a sit down dinner or would you rather have your loved ones over for a casual spread of finger foods and appetizers? Based on the type of food you are serving and how you guest will be mixing and mingling, pick out serving platters and dishes like the Be Thankful Serving Platter or the Asheville Leaves Serving Bowl from Pier 1 Imports that work well with the flow of your party.
2. Make your own centrepieces. Save on costly flowers and floral arrangements by creating your own table décor with seasonal items. For my own dinner, I picked up Fall Decorative Fillers from Pier 1 Imports to place in small bowls to add some colour to my table. This is also a great idea if you’re hosting multiple events because then you won’t have to worry about replacing your flowers in between events when they begin to wilt.
3. Add some seasonal touches around the house. Transport the colours of fall into your home by adding a few small décor items around the house. This year, I’ll be hanging up a simple yet chic “Give Thanks” wooden banner next too my Natural Turkey made of straw from Pier 1 Imports to spruce up my house and create the perfect backdrop for family photos.
