Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away? Where has this month gone? Before we know it, we will be overindulging in turkey and sliding into a tryptophan coma. Thanksgiving is definitely my kind of holiday! But, remember, it doesn’t all have to be about the meal itself – it can also be about the fun celebration around the meal. I’m talking about Thanksgiving parties, so here’s a healthy serving of gobble gobble party inspiration.
I always get excited when I see that anything Charlie Brown is scheduled to air on TV. Naturally, when I came across this Charlie Brown Thanksgiving party from Double the Fun Parties I knew it would have to be included in my party round-up. The styling for this party is adorable, with the brown and orange color scheme being perfect for Thanksgiving.
At this party kids got to craft their own t-shirts to look like characters from Peanuts – such a clever idea! And the multi-layered cake is simply amazing! One layer is modeled after Charlie Brown’s shirt, the other is Snoopy and Woodstock on top of the dog house. Awesome!
If you want to invite Snoopy himself to the party, you could always hire a Snoopy costumed character to join in the fun.
Another great Thanksgiving celebration for the kids is this Whoot of Thanks play date party from The Savvy Moms Guide. This party is all about teaching the youngsters how, and why, they should give thanks. This party has a very natural feel – kids created their own owl figures from pine cones and also made owl s’mores. Kids were served healthy snacks including a delightful turkey made from fruit, cheese and vegetables. After snacks, guests enjoyed another treat – the story of ‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving.
If you are looking for a more sophisticated holiday gathering, you will love this Rustic Thanksgiving Dinner from The Party Dress. The rustic tablescape is simple, yet elegant, and includes earth tone linens, country crocks and lots of berries. This party styling is perfect if you are trying to provide guests with a warm, comfortable ambiance.
I love the idea of using brown kraft paper as a tablecloth for a kids table and providing them with crayons so they can draw away. This party also offers many tasty recipes that are sure to satisfy even the largest of appetites. A great final touch would be to add a folk singer or acoustic guitarist to this rustic Thanksgiving dinner party .
