Parties and Inspiration

  • Use a champagne bucket as your floral vase and fill it with beautiful white and orange roses from Costco's floral department.

  • Convert this classic dessert to a new Thanksgiving guest favorite by substituting the rum for some pumpkin pie cream liquor. Add the flavor of the fall season to the dish by adding in some cinnamon and nutmeg.

  • Add a touch of elegance to your table with these silver and jeweled flower napkin rings. These rings will make your guests feel like they are dining with the Royal Family, while enjoying a perfectly prepared feast.

  • Use these modern mini-martini glasses to serve your Roasted Butternut Squash Soup in small servings so your guests will have room for the rest of the meal. Top them with some sweetened toasted coconut for a contrasting texture to the ever-so-creamy and savory starter.

  • Stage a sleek and modern table setting with square sliver chargers and plain white round dinner plates. Place a salad plate on top of the dinner plate to act as a charger that can be taken away after guests enjoy their first course.

  • There is perhaps no better holiday during which to reflect on all of life's blessings than Thanksgiving. With family gathered for this wonderful holiday, take the time to toast to these blessings with an all-time favorite champagne, Veuve Clicquot.

  • To add some visual dimension to the center of your table, place the silver pine cones and acorns from HomeGoods inside of glass vases. You can also turn the vases upside down and place the orange pillars candles on top.

  • These silver mint julep cups are the perfect accompaniment to the other silver accents on the dining table. Although their main purpose is to serve refreshing bourbon cocktails, they also double beautifully as vases with their smooth sterling silver-like finish.

  • This is a perfect fall seasonal side dish brimming with flavors, such as cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Placing the potatoes in the orange peel is the secret to revealing all of the delicious flavors, not to mention an amazing presentation.

  • These turkey tenderloins with cremini mushroom stuffing are the perfect main course for a small modern Thanksgiving dinner. They are incredibly easy to make and definitely a tasty alternative to a full traditional turkey.

A Modern Thanksgiving

Though Thanksgiving is a holiday steeped in family traditions, that doesn’t mean it needs to be boring. Add a fresh, modern twist to your festivities by choosing a more stylish theme using a brighter, bolder orange and silver palette. Instead of a vase, use a champagne bucket for your flowers and flank it with some silver-toned mercury glass accents, such as these acorns and pinecones from HomeGoods, to retain that fall season feel. Find some white and orange roses and create a pavĂ© style arrangement to maintain that modish style. Make sure to prepare dishes with traditional flavors but add a unique twist to take the holiday from ordinary to extraordinary.
