At this time of year, we are all about ghoulish green here at PartyIdeaPros. Today, however, the green we are referring to is the eco-friendly kind. We bring our own bags wherever we shop.

Definitely the chocolate concoctions for the main table centerpieces, a brimming over vegetable cornucopia on the appetizer table, and the fruit turkey on the dessert table (such a fun way to present your healthy dessert option).

This is the perfect time to reconnect with loved ones whether they be family or friends. So first things first, if you haven't yet made your travel arrangements, the time is NOW! …
Thanksgiving Dinner Party Table Decor
Last year we hosted Thanksgiving in San Diego – here is a peek at our tables! In complete disclosure – since we live in San Diego, beautiful weather made it possible for us to host Thanksgiving outdoors. Simple solar powered patio lights and lots of candles provided enough light even after sunset. As you can see, we tried to mix elegant with fanciful touches. Continue Reading →
More Thanksgiving Essentials
We thought we had pretty much covered anything and everything you might need or want for Thanksgiving in our Thanksgiving Dinner Party Essentials but turns out, every year we find more great “essentials”. Yes, it is true that our aesthetic evolves every year. For example this year, we are really into using tea towels for napkins and love the elegant acorn salt and pepper shakers. And we would love to find a way to use the coloring turkey die-cut placemats! Continue Reading →
