Our Recommendations!

Decor: Go for a rustic themed decor with burlap and linen or a glam look with white and gold

Flowers: Colors! Freshly cut colorful flowers go with any theme and get people’s spirits soaring

Candles: Lots of them as centerpieces, over the mantel and get a little creative with the votives

Food: Lobster Mac and Cheese, Roasted Turkey, Cranberry Chutney, Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

And most important of all is to have fun, be thankful and enjoy some quality time with friends and family.

Let’s get started on the planning now, shall we?
