The air is getting crisper, the leaves are turning colour and you awaken with a sudden craving for turkey and mashed potatoes. It must be time for Thanksgiving! As the day approaches, consider some of these Thanksgiving trends to impress your guests and bring something new to a time-honored family tradition.
Natural Decor: Get that cozy fall feel inside with a touch of the outside in your table setting. Try pairing our burlap table runners with hammered gold bowls filled with fall flowers, birchwood or natural elements from your own backyard!
Gratitude Sharing Activities: ‘Tis the season to give thanks for all we have. Share what you’re thankful for in a creative way by getting a “Thankful Pumpkin” and having your guests write what they are thankful for on it. Or create a “Thankful Tree” by creating ornaments representing the things you are thankful for.
Locally Sourced Food: Skip the chain grocery stores for your Thanksgiving feast this year and support local farmers! There are plenty of farmers’ markets open year-round in Calgary to help you check off everything on your grocery list.
