Last-Minute Thanksgiving Ideas

Are you gearing up for Thanksgiving? Have all your plans in place? Here in Canada, with our October Thanksgiving in the rear view mirror and snow now starting to fly, it's hard not to focus on Christmas. But I know most of you have a whole lot of turkey and football to get through first.

I thought I'd give you a couple of last-minute ideas for decorations and dessert, two areas where people are always looking for something new and different. These are recipes/crafts I've posted previously and they're still some of my favourites. Click on the title or the picture to go to the original post with full instructions.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifle

This is a no-bake dessert that has all of the "autumn-ness" of pumpkin pie, with the light texture of mousse. And cookie crumbles for a bit of crunch. It takes no time at all to whip together, and then it can go into the refrigerator until you're ready to serve.

Dryer Vent Turkey Centerpiece

This craft came about when I had leftover Halloween dryer-vent pumpkins laying about. I loved them so much that I didn't want to pack them away yet, so I found a way to re-purpose a few.

I love decorating with leaves and cinnamon pot pourri. This is a craft that utilizes all of those bits and pieces you have laying around - twine, sauce jars, and tealights. The warm glow of the candles through the leaves is beautiful and the jars would look so pretty arranged along the center of your dinner table.

I hope you all have a terrific Thanksgiving!
