If you want to throw a Thanksgiving Party for all the good things in life-your friends, family, colleagues, teachers, neighbors and beloved, here are a bunch of Thanksgiving party ideas for the Thanksgiving feast that's coming up. Make your party a super-hit success with all the warmth and love stuffed in from the decorations to menu. Arranging a party means planning the invitations, decorations, food and favors and definitely the party games. So get started with your Thanksgiving party planning. Here are a few ideas:
Thanksgiving Party Themes:
You can have a Thanksgiving party with a theme, which helps plan a party better. For Thanksgiving the theme that you choose should be reflective of the spirit of the holiday or the season of Autumn. So the themes could be autumn harvest, fall leaves, fall colors or anything befitting the season that would all make your living room a vibrant potpourri of colors.
The invitations you send to your guests should also be in keeping with the occasion of Thanksgiving. So select your invitations carefully and send them out well in advance so as not to miss out any friend or family member to another warm and snug Thanksgiving party. Thanksgiving invitations in shapes of cornucopia, a pumpkin or autumn leaves are very popular and are some of the choicest Thanksgiving party ideas.
The décor of your Thanksgiving party should be such that your guests get a feel of the occasion. The brown, the rust, the golden of Autumn should all be part of your décor as nothing spells more beauty than these fall colors. You can use a cornucopia or a pumpkin-vase or a fake turkey as your centerpiece. You can use a table-spread with Autumn leaves motif and decorate your buffet table with clusters of scented candles, having a bunch of berries or some apples carelessly kept at its base. Aren't these some chic Thanksgiving party ideas?
The food at a Thanksgiving party can certainly be the center of attention. Nothing says fall like a pumpkin pie or a mouthwatering roasted brown turkey sizzling on the dinner table spreading an irresistible aroma! You can pep up your Thanksgiving party menu with other popular Thanksgiving grubs like bread stuffing, Dutch potato filling, Turkey fruit salad etc. Do not forget to keep some chilled juices handy in your Thanksgiving party in case your guests' need some icy cool thrill. And it would be wonderful ideas to serve them up in cool paper glasses decorated with fall colors or ribbons in Autumn shades.
And don't we all know that games are a must for any party? Just try out some of these games at your Thanksgiving party this year! You can ask your friends and neighbors to turn up in Thanksgiving costumes like Pilgrims, Native Indians or turkeys to add to the spirit of the party as also play the Thanksgiving game where each guest has to enact a scene from the first dinner the Pilgrims ate. At the end of the party you can ask every guest to write down on a piece of paper about their own ancestors or what they are most thankful for in their lives. The guests can either read these out to the rest or simply take them back home as a memory of your Thanksgiving party. Get Thanksgiving themed stationery for the party if you are planning to play this game. Apart from these there are also many other Thanksgiving party games which you may find under Thanksgiving game section.
Favors are a way to thank your guests for taking time out to attend your Thanksgiving party and making your Thanksgiving a memorable affair. Candy, gumballs wrapped in orange papers, tied off in the shape of little pumpkins make good party favors on Thanksgiving. Pumpkin jaw breakers and leaf-shaped milk chocolates in Autumn-colored foils, or small wicker cornucopias can be given to close friends and folks. Coloring books and modeling clay are great ideas too and can be given as Thanksgiving party favors to kids along with candies.
Thanksgiving celebrates the fall harvest. With God's blessings in abundance, our hearts are filled with gratitude. On Thanksgiving, share this joy with your friends, family or beloved over food, fun and games. So here's hoping that your Thanksgiving party is a joyous affair, with abundance of love and warmth!
