Thanksgiving Hosting Tips
Thanksgiving is a feel-good holiday, full of delicious food, good company and giving thanks. Have you hosted Thanksgiving dinner? If you have, you know there are a couple of things to consider: How should you decorate? What can you do to help your guests feel comfortable and enjoy themselves? If these questions have crossed your mind, read on for our tips… You’re sure to be the hostess with the mostest this year!
First and foremost, get a fall-scented Soy Candle, Wax Melt for your Wax Melter/Warmer or a Reed Diffuser. There’s absolutely nothing more inviting than walking into a warm house that smells like pumpkin spice, apple cider or vanilla and brown sugar!
Now, if there’s one thing you should decorate to wow your guests, it’s your dining table. Set aside some time before Thanksgiving weekend to create a beautiful tabletop centrepiece.
You have a couple of different options. For a warm and cozy look, choose a Long or Extra Long Dough Bowl Candle in a fall scent and place some Fabric Pumpkins, Pampas Grass, real small pumpkins or gourds and Fall Decor Beads around it.
If you want a more bountiful, cornucopia look, go for a Long or Extra Long Decorative Dough Bowl filled with acorns, pinecones, cinnamon sticks, craft pumpkins, apples and cranberries.
The next thing to consider is the bathroom. Do you have enough soap for guests to wash their hands and… is it fall-scented? Seasonal soaps are a fun and easy way to put anyone in festive spirits! For Thanksgiving try our Warmth or Homemade Foaming Hand Soaps. It’s also not a bad idea to place some Hand Sanitizer in the kitchen where all the food prep and eating is going on.After dinner, you’ll want to help your guests digest and unwind. Serve them a hot drink like Pumpkin Chai Tea in a fall mug. Before they leave you might also want to give them a little gift to show your appreciation! Our Wine Tumblers and a bottle of wine or fresh apple cider are sure to warm their spirits all season long.
