About this time last year, I never felt more like an adult than when my roommates and I decided to host our own Thanksgiving dinner. Although I always travel home to be with family for the actual day, having a dinner with friends the week before is the perfect opportunity to get creative with decorations, try out new recipes (or even better, an old family recipe), and give thanks for all those people that have made the transition to the real world that much easier. I’m big on tradition when it comes to the holidays, but there are some fresh Thanksgiving ideas that I’m excited to try out this year! From a festive pre-dinner cocktail to edible place cards, to a simple, fun way of donating meals to families who could use a little extra help this year, use these ideas to infuse your traditions with a little something fresh.
A light, refreshing cocktail for your guests to sip on while mingling. The girls will love the elegant touch and the guys will sip on anything if it tastes good and there’s football on in the background.
