Friday Finds: Thanksgiving Day Ideas

This time next week we will all be stuffed after our Thanksgiving feasts. Before we get to that point there is a lot of prep that goes into Thanksgiving. Whether you are making the full dinner yourself or if you want to find the perfect dish to bring, we searched for some of the best recipes and decor ideas for this special holiday. Here are a few of our favorites.

1. While some of us love the turkey, it is all about the sides for me. Intelligent Gourmet shares a healthy spin on the green bean casserole with her Feel-Good Green Bean Casserole complete with portobello mushrooms, fat-free half and half and shallots.

2. Decor is a huge part of fall and Thanksgiving. Megan Makes shares her DIY tips on how to create six looks for fall with shelving, festive wreaths and white pumpkins.

3. Let’s talk gravy. Jaime Hollander shares his step-by-step tips on how to create the perfect gravy with panicking.

4. Minimalism and simple are definitely characterics we look for in design. We found this lovely DIY Thanksgiving Table Setting from Lipstick and a White Tee featuring a paper that states ‘Thankful For’ where you can place your spoon and fork and then use the lines to reflect with your loved ones.
