A Thanksgiving celebration is extra special with a theme. Thanksgiving is all about food, friends, and celebration. Try one of these five Thanksgiving party themes for your Houston Thanksgiving this year.
Year of Thanks
This is an obvious choice for Thanksgiving party themes for your yearly celebration. Inexpensive or homemade thank you notes double as place cards placed at each place setting. You can even hand each guest a blank thank you and have them write something they are thankful for and before serving have each guest read their card – which would go over nicely as a cranberry beverage toast time celebration. A wonderful cranberry mold is a nice relish dish or desert idea.
First American Thanksgiving Celebration
Recreate the original Thanksgiving feast. This is another great idea for another of many Thanksgiving dinner themes. Keeping the original Native American and Pilgrim gathering in mind, decorate in the style of autumn harvest. Recipes incorporating foods native to the area is also a nice touch. According to a journal of the original Thanksgiving celebration deer, wild birds were certainly on the menu. Fruits and vegetables common to the harvest at the time and region were corn, cabbage, peas, cranberries, gooseberries, and raspberries – to name a few. Decorations can include autumn leaves, pumpkins, corn stalks and any dried flowers you have available.
Happy Harvest Thanksgiving
Another appropriate Thanksgiving dinner theme is "harvest time". Think local harvest foods including pumpkin, cranberry, squash, and corn. A refreshing cranberry punch or wine are beverages perfectly served with harvest foods. Pumpkin pie is always a hit for Thanksgiving dinner. Roasted squash and a delicious cornbread dressing are common recipes to make for the harvest celebration. Applying a can or two of metallic spray paint on some dry corn ears and squash is a recipe for some beautiful decorations for you harvest celebration.
In Honor of Mr. Tom Turkey
Honoring Mr. Tom Turkey is a fun celebration theme to have a little fun, especially if your Thanksgiving party will include many young guests. Feathers placed in flower arrangements or tied to silverware with a napkin are eye appealing and decorative touches. For some added interaction, make the dinner in honor of Mr. Tom and have everyone say a line of a story about Mr. Tom. Each guest can add a line to the previous lines to create a funny and entertaining story game to the Thanksgiving celebration.
American harvests include an array of apples. Apples are easy to place for decorative effect for you Thanksgiving theme dinner party. Apple cider is good hot or cold as a beverage to serve your guest. Apple pie, apple crisp and even apple bread stuffing are easily incorporated in the menu along with other apple themed recipes.
