Time to say Thank You – Thanksgiving Party Ideas


Harvest season is approaching and so is Thanksgiving. It’s Time to Thank Lord for all his blessings on our family & friends. This religious holiday brings family & friends close to pray for the well being off all their well-wishers.  From childhood I have always had lavish Thanksgiving with my family and close friends coming over special Turkey Dinner my mom cooked. Memories of Thanksgiving are still fresh when my dad after the prayers carved Turkey for us.  Each one of us has special childhood Thanksgiving Memories which we cherish. Past few years I am not able to celebrate Thanksgiving my family, as they were not with me. So this year when my parents are visiting me, I am going to surprise them with a lavish Thanksgiving Day Dinner. To say my Thanks to them for being with me always.

I have never been scared of organizing a party but this Thanksgiving Dinner Party is giving me jitters. I have invited all my parents close friends and family over dinner. And I am worried if I will be able to match my mother’s Thanksgiving Dinner, where everyone left with a smiling face.  

Thanksgiving Decorations:


No party is complete with a proper décor. Adding some decoration elements give your part area some lift and also gives you the change you want. Why spend hundreds renting outside when you can transform your own apartment to your very own Personal Party Arena. I Picked up certain Turkey & Fall based Thanksgiving Decorations for the party to impress my mom (as you know mom’s rarely get impressed with their daughter’s skills)

So, let’s get going planning this Thanksgiving Day Dinner Party.


Air blown Turkey - Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving without turkey is not complete. Well, I am not only talking about Turkey on your dinner table but also as in important element of Thanksgiving Day decoration.
