At HomeGoods, we believe memorable meals are made with personal touches, a splash of creativity and the sweet satisfaction of staying on budget!

Any day is a good day to celebrate your loved ones but Thanksgiving is truly a time to slow down and relish the company of family and friends. Here, we’re serving up a few twists on old holiday traditions.

For some of us, family is long distance and travel isn’t an option. However you define loved ones, create a fun, inviting welcome with a help-yourself drink and apps station. It immediately puts guests at ease with a relaxed, casual vibe. (Side note: we’re loving the hair pin legs on this chic side table – very on trend!)

Forgo wine charms and offer an eclectic mix of glassware. Your guests can shake, stir and pour in the shape, size and color of their choice.

Set up another area for buffet-style dining. It creates a convivial atmosphere by encouraging guests to wander and mingle. Bonus! It’s less stress for the host too as many serveware pieces can go right from oven to table.

And who says Thanksgiving has to be autumnal colors and turkeys? We love the unexpected shot of teal. Mixed with an array of pumpkins, gourds, candles and seasonal greenery, it’s fun, fresh and happy.

The holidays are for big and little kids! Create a space where younger guests can celebrate too. The inspiration for this table started with the woodland creature plates. They’re melamine which means they won’t crack…… or break your budget!

The animal theme played out with a tablerunner for coloring. Layered over craft paper, it’s charming and keeps kids occupied while the adults go for seconds and thirds! For an easy DIY you can create simple placemats with a free online printable.

From small and intimate gatherings to big and formal affairs, find your holiday inspiration and find it for less at HomeGoods!
